On a happier Google note: according to CEO Eric Schmidt, 200,000 Android handsets are now being activated every day. That’s an awful lot of handsets, and is double May’s numbers. Hell, it’s 40,000/day more than June. Android fever, folks.
Schmidt sat down for a hardcore gangsta rap session with reporters after his panel at the Techonomy conference, where he let some facts and figures fly about Android, not the least revealing of which was that he “loves the success of the iPhone” due to how much it drives search – search, of course, being what keeps that Android money coming in. Brilliant, Schmidt. Just brilliant.
Actually, it’s probably best we let the man himself do the talking.
