The Android platform is now seeing more than 850,000 device activations per day, up from the 700,000 figured shared back in January, according to Andy Rubin, who oversees the OS at Google.

Given that Android was 250 million cumulative device activations during the company’s last quarterly earnings call, this rate suggests that the platform is nearing 300 million device activations to date.
