Noticing the regular updates about sales figure, what Andy Rubin is tweeted seems to be true. The company, which launched its Android smart phone as a competition to Apple iphone, has been constantly growing. Seven months prior to making this tweet, Andy Rubin had announced that the company was receiving activation figures of about 300,000 phones per day. Eric Schmidt, who is a former member in Google’s board of directors, had released a quote saying that Google android was being activated at the rate of 200,000 connections per day. The announcement by Schmidt had come two months before the first announcement by Andy Rubin.
