If you have listened to the Today in iOS podcast long enough you know that I have a love / hate relationship with stats.  As in I love them when they prove my point and hate then when they don't.

 

 Well Google just gave some stats I kind of think I love.  Way back in August Google said Android phones were being activated at a clip of 200,000 per day.  And that was the last time they talked about those numbers - that is until Monday December 6th when Google said they are now up to 214,000 activations per day.  

 

During that time Apple went from 230,000 activations of iOS devices per day on September 1st to 270,000 average activations per day in Mid October.  Which is a nice growth vs Android phones which actually have seen lower per day activation numbers since August.  But Rob Going from 200,000 to 214,000 is an increase you say. Ah but least we forget that the Samsung Galaxy tab which is in that 214,000 per day number and they represent approx. 17,000 activations per day.  So for Android phones since August there is actually about a 3,000 per day decrease.  See why I can love stats. 


And if you take these number further. On an average day there are 56,000 more iOS devices activated then there are Android devices.  But since everyone likes to talk about quarterly numbers - this quarter based on those number Apple will increase its lead of iOS over Android OS by over 5 Million units.  That is a lot more potential iOS customers for App developers vs Android.
