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.
