Andy Rubin: 3.7 million Android devices activated over the Christmas weekend

Andy Rubin has announced via his Twitter account (and Google Plus, apparently) that over the Christmas weekend — 24th & 25th — there were 3.7 million Android devices newly activated. The usual amount is around 700,000 a day, so they’ve increased the amount four-fold in those two days.

If you’re wondering how these ‘activations’ are qualified, Andy Rubin explains:

…and for those wondering, we count each device only once (ie, we don’t count re-sold devices), and “activations” means you go into a store, buy a device, put it on the network by subscribing to a wireless service.

I wonder if we’ll push 7-8 million activations next year. It’s an interesting and exciting we’ve got ahead of us.

^^ which I guess means that all those wireless only tablets don’t get counted too
