Some Android Stats

Some up-to-date Android statistics announced by Eric Schmidt at Mobile World Congress yesterday:
  • 350,000 smartphone & tablet activations per day
  • 170 unique devices running Android
  • 27 OEMs (but not Nokia!)
  • 169 mobile carriers
  • 69 countries
  • 150,000 Android applications

The momentum behind Android continues to build. It would appear that only Apple could stop this train now … perhaps with an iPhone Nano? It may already be too late!

Benchmark Capital’s Bill Gurley made a very nice analysis of Google’s strategy with Android:  It’s like protecting a castle by charring all surrounding earth in a 250 mile radius, making it impossible for anybody to come near it.

I tend to agree!
