Andy Rubin staying with Android – Android Activations up to 900,000 per day


Andy Rubin just tweeted out the above statement which I thought was a little weird, until I checked out Robert Scobles Google+ stream, turns out Andy was responding to this Google+ post from Robert Scoble, which in short read :

Today I heard that the head of Android, +Andy Rubin, will soon leave Google and head to a new startup called http://www.cloudcar.com/

-there is more in his post so check out the full text.

Andy Rubin then took to Google+ to further clarify :

How a rumor gets factualized: Cloudcar are a group of friends who I give free office space to in my incubator in Los Altos. Revel Touch (Mar Hershenson’s company: www.reveltouch.com) is another cool company that shares this space. I’m not joining either one and I don’t have any plans to leave Google. See you on the 27th!

So, Andy Rubin is staying at Google with Android and as a sweetener to that news he advised that Android now activates 900,000 devices a day, this is up from the 850,000 devices a day that he announced on Google+ during Mobile World Congress in Spain. Roll-on June 27th and Google IO!

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
