Andy Rubin squashes rumors of leaving Android, confirms 900,000+ Android activations daily


Rumors of Andy Rubin joining an upcoming start-up CloudCar were squashed as he replied via his official Google+ and Twitter account saying:

“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: 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!”

Andy Rubin has stated that the number of daily Android activations has gone up from the 850,000 daily activations to more than 900,000 daily activations. An Android activation is counted when a device having a cellular radio has a Google account signed into it. This isn’t counted when you flash a new ROM or a custom ROM. This means that over 900,000 Android devices are bought daily with more than 27,000,000 every month. Even for Android this is an amazing statistic considering that just a couple of months ago after MWC the number was 850,000.
