Android Boss Andy Robin : There are 900,000 Daily Androd Device Activations


There was a recent rumour emerged  in internet that google’s head of the Android division Andy Robin is going to resign and leave the company but he has refuted the rumours on twitter and google+ and will remain with google for more years to come, its not surprising though, as Android has very rapidly picked up a momentum.

The U.S Technology blgger spread the rumour about Andy’S alleged move to start-up companies and as a result of this rumour many people got worried about Andy Robin who started Android and is the mastermind of the google’s mobile operating system Android. He tld on the twitter that currently over 900,000 Androd Device Activations with Android software on daily basis. That number is up 50,000 from the last figure  back in late February. Its to be noted that the Android activations are only counted only once/ single time when a new device is first activated on a mobile operator’s network.


According to the market research company Gartner Inc. Android holds a stake of 56.1 % in the smartphone market. On the other hand, the IOS devices of Apple are at 22,3 percent only.


Andy Robin told how the rumour got started:

How a rumor gets factualized: Cloudcar are a group of friends who I give free office space to in my incubator in Los Altos. Revel Touch (Mar Hershenson’s company: is another cool company that shares this space. I’m not joining either one and I don’t have any plans to leave Google. See you on the 27th!

Android is an amazing and very popular mobile operating system and there is so much yet to be done on it so why would Andy Robin say “good bye Android” ?
