Holy cow!

I read this and almost fell off my chair.

According to Google’s Senior Vice President of Mobile, Andy Rubin, Android device activations are now at 850,000 per day.

Almost 1 million phones a day coming online with the Android OS.

That is an IMPRESSIVE number and will be hard to beat with the type of momentum that they have in the phone space.

Say a prayer for Windows Phone.

      Absolutely WRONG!
      IMEI is crucial for being considered as a NEW activation.
      You can get a new smartphone that uses with Android and change its ROM 1,000 times, but only once will be considered a NEW activation: the first one, when the IMEI is sent.
