Google updates: 3.7 million devices activated Christmas weekend

Yesterday Furry posted some preliminary number for mobile activations on Christmas: approximately 6.8 million iOS and Android devices were registered on Sunday alone. Unfortunately, the mobile analytics company didn't differentiate between the two biggest platforms. Google's Android boss Andy Rubin shed some light on the subject via Twitter, stating that on Christmas and Christmas Eve 3.7 million Android devices were activated in total.

Android activations, app downloads jump to massive levels on Christmas day

If Google saw three ships on Christmas day, on Christmas day in the morning, it might just need them to store all the cash it's going to make from a slew of new Android devices. Mobile analytics firm Flurry reports that combined activations for Android and iOS devices went from an average of 1.5 million a day (at least 700,000 Android smartphones, the rest divided among Android tablets, the iPhone, iPod and iPad) to almost 7 million on Christmas, making it easily the biggest day of the year for new smartphone and tablet users.
