As per Google, there are almost 60,000 Android based cellphones being shipped every day, worldwide. Google CEO Eric Schmidt revealed this data at the Mobile World Congress. Considering this data is correct, this means that the total number of Android phones sold would be over 20 million a year. That’s a massive amount, which is enough to put Android ahead of all the iPhone sales by the end of 2010 or early 2011.
Although the poor sales of the Nexus One is not very impressive, it doesn’t quite stop Google shipping its free open source mobile OS to other handset manufacturers. With perfect multi-tasking, good memory management, impressive reliability and a super-sleek UI, Android seems to be invincible.[source: mashable.com]
