Eric Schmidt has just left the stage at Motorola's "On Display" event in New York. Before leaving, though, he divulged some interesting new Android-related numbers.

First among them was the latest figure for "activations per day," which tracks the total number of new Android devices activated each and every day. You may remember Andy Rubin revealing that number to be around 900,000 while quashing rumors back in June, but according to Schmidt, the total number of daily activations has now topped 1.3 million. That's 1,300,000 – an undoubtedly impressive number.

Out of that 1.3 million devices per day, Schmidt noted that 70,000 were tablets. Not a huge proportion, but interesting nonetheless.

So how many total Android devices have been activated overall? According to Google's Chairman/CEO, there have been a whopping 480 million Android devices activated to date.

Stay tuned for more updates from Moto's On Display event. In the meantime, tune in to the live YouTube broadcast linked below.

    That number was definitely higher than I expected to hear. Android domination.

    Eric Schmidt is a liar. Google activation numbers are highly suspect. Anmdroid is still getting their butts kicked revenue wise by iOS. It's not even close.

      Your god (Jobs) once said the numbers were suspect, the same day proof was released that they were the true numbers. But your god can't be wrong, right? ;)

      I don't think Google makes any money off of the OS. It is the advertising $$$ it wants which is why it is more important to have volume in the mobile space.

      I really pity religious nuts regardless of stripe.

    Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, top of the list here had provided political support for a serious of fascism crimes which related to a cold-blooded killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou (a girl of U.S. citizen, Taiwan origin, MIT alumnus and Stanford Ph.D. candicate) as well as an unsuccssful plotted murder on me, all started from an on campus atrocity case in Stanford University [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler], in which an extremely irrational Germany lady named Gabriele Scheler had bitterly assaulted me. Chancellor Merkel might as well back up a coup in Stanford after she visited Stanford in 2010, though it was cracked down by California Judicial Authorities in time. It is an interesting question of how much Chancellor Angela Merkel had invovled into such series of facsism crimes on land of America. I bet with the intervention of Germany power into these cases, such series of fascism crimes would never be clarified and such fascism crimes on land of America would never be concurred by U.S. Authorities. A very serious offending to the dignity and sovereignty of people of the United States;

    Eric Schmidt had lost his credibility when he got invovled into fascism crimes which had endangered human lives
    ——————————————————
    There is actually a war between fascism and anti-fascism, at this stage, fascism still prevails in our lives, Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler are just front figures we could see in this fascism circle, there is a whole pack of fascists behind them
    Eric, as we can see, starting from Gabriele Scheler’s atrocity case on Stanford campus back in 2004, many people, including Gabriele Scheler, Sebastian Thrun, you Eric Schmidt, and also your collegue in China Kaifu Lee, had made contributions to such fascism crimes which had cost human life of Stanford student May Zhou and crimes which had retaliated on victims and almost cost life of the victim as I am
    … … and someone who had provided legal coverage for your fascism crimes, including a powerful officer from Santa Clara DA Office, namely ZZZ (and after ZZZ, another officer YYY), and the officer VVV who’s in charge of Gabriele Scheler’s case and who had further collateralled with your side(suspect Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler’s side) to conspire and curse victims( Stanford, May Zhou, me) in every possible way since 2006 till today; and maybe include the officer RRR who insist on May Zhou’s death as a suicide or accident, even though I had clearly pointed out who’s involved in May Zhou’s murder case …
    … … and someone who could provide political support for your fascism crimes, including top politician from the country of Germany whom we all know — Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, and maybe include a retired top politician from UK as well, etc. and more and more to find out later …

    I believe, though some names missed out, all names mentioned in the above comment are part of this fascism circle

    I believe Chancellor Angela Merkel had monitored and invovled into Sebastian Thrun, Gabriele Scheler and Eric Schmidt’s fight against ruling from authorities of Stanford and authorities of U.S. over their unruly criminal behaviors on campus of Stanford, and which ensued a series of crimes, including killing the innocent, conspire life of the victim, terrorize/extort authorities, corruption, miscarriage of justice, discrimination against Asian, all on land of America, etc.
    Sebastian Thrun, a Germany Scholar who had got Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit when she visited Stanford in 2010, had partialy left Stanford Computer Science department because he is in debt to Stanford people with his involvment into Stanford student May Zhou’s death, he is not innocent in an unsuccessful plotted murder on me either and I have been cursed by powers from Sebastian Thrun’s side for many years. Sebastian Thrun dare not deny to the public his involvment into such fascism crimes till today and I am still waiting to see why he dare not

    By the way, I saw a serious article about Secretary Hillary Clinton [http://walt.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2012/07/10/on_secretary_clinton], with Eric Schmidt's name in it.
    Would that article indicate Eric Schmidt's involvment into such fascism crimes would be sheltered under the power of Hillary Clinton, too? Does that indicate that Hillary Clinton had, in the United States, served as representative and coverage of these in this fascism circle and backed up such fascism crimes?
    That's heartbreaking if so, since I have admired the Clintons since I learned their names in the early 1990s

    Here is a real problem at this stage: who is the officer responsible for May Zhou’s case? Suicide theory in May Zhou’s case remain unbelievable until the officer who said so had a direct discussion with me who’s life had been threatened by Sebastian Thrun, Eric Schmidt and Gabriele Scheler’s side with the death of May Zhou
    On 2012/02/21 StanfordDaily article “virtual-learning” [http://www.stanforddaily.com/2012/02/21/virtual-learning/] in Comments part regarding to a murder case about a Stanford student May Zhou with which Eric Schmidt had threatened my life for sake of a stanford professor Sebastian Thrun and a criminal suspect named Gabriele Scheler during their fight with Stanford:
    ================================================
    @concernedNetCitizen,
    About your ARROGANT question “If you think you have evidence (and i mean physical evidence) to the contrary why do you not take it to the police, or at least post what evidence you have (and I mean PHYSICAL evidence like fibres, DNA, fingerprints and the like).”
    ————————————————
    … such PHYSICAL evidence already exists and that’s what I am going to tell.
    The point at this time is, who is this officer who’s respnosible for May Zhou’s case, whom I should talk to? Could you have me connect with this officer? I have serious stuff to report; my contact caomingpter@163.com or peter_vista@yahoo.com
    Meanwhile, why don’t you help us to figure out what’s the motivation behind May Zhou’s death

    Here is a link to the briefing of the case which led to a series of fascism crimes.
    One photo would tell it all, there are seven photo evidence which documented how cruel this irrational lady was when she assaulted me on Stanford campus in 2004
    —[http://tysurl DOT com/mssgYn] (replace DOT with ‘.’ and then get the right web address)—
    [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler]
    Such simple but serious campus atrocity crime was covered up by certain malicious officers. How could this happen? Who’s in charge of Gabriele Scheler’s case? On what basis would certain officers rule against me in favor of this criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler in light of such clear evidence of Gabriele Scheler’s atrocity on my body? Even, certain malicious officers (ZZZ, YYY, RRR, VVV) had abused their judicial power to make up false accusation of sexual assault on criminal suspect Scheler’s recanted testimony to curse victim as I am, to cover up Scheler’s crimes while retaliating on victims (e.g. Stanford people, May Zhou, and me, etc.)
    I think it is with the intervention of Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel that Gabriele Scheler’s criminal case could not be clarified in U.S. judicial system and retaliatory crimes would be going on and on form criminal suspect Scheler’s side, which had led to the killing of this innocent Stanford student May Zhou as well as an unsuccessful murder on me. I bet more would come if this case remain unclarified at authorities as what it is now; But who’s word count on land of America?

    Would these numbers include Kindle Fire's? I'm guessing no.
