We all know Android is popular and during the Mobile World Congress in February, Google were seeing 850,000 activations per day but now those numbers are stronger. They're currently seeing 900,000 activations each and every day. This equates to around 625 per minute!

Insane numbers for Google and it'll only grow with the number of Android-powered devices coming out every few weeks. Andy Rubin was also rumored to be leaving Google, but he has squashed these numbers on his Twitter page where he says "No plans to leave Google", adding a tease of the activation numbers "oh, and just for meme completeness -- there are over 900,000 android devices activated each day :-)".

The rumor that Rubin was leaving came from Robert Scoble who is known for rumor mongering, where he reported through Google+ that Rubin was leaving to take charge of a new startup called CloudCar, but Rubin debunked this quite quickly.
