More on Google: Eric Schmidt claims 1.3M Android devices are now activated daily, up sharply from the 1M reported in late June. However, only 70K consist of tablets - this translates into a quarterly run rate of 6.3M. By contrast, Apple shipped 17M iPads in the June quarter. That's a big reason why iOS continues to wield an edge on Android in Web traffic, an edge that translates into large search revenue-sharing payments for Google. The arrival of Windows RT tablets stands to further pressure Android.

    Those numbers include Kindle and Nook, which are brain-damaged Android and not really Android at all...

    I believe the number. However, I also believe a significant portion is not from developed countries. Those tend to have very low monetization values from advertising perspective.

    It's only a matter of time before Apple phases out Google completely by running every search through Siri.
