200,000 Android devices sold each day

And growing
It appears that Google’s Android OS is turning into a massive success. Market share is up, the number of design wins is equally impressive and tens of thousands of new apps appear each month.

Talking to a tech conference in Lake Tahoe, Google CEO Eric Schmidt announced that some 200,000 Android devices are being sold each day. The numbers are quite staggering, as Android devices are apparently managing to outsell Apple’s iPhone and the rest of the competition.

"The number was about 100,000 (a day) about two months ago. “It looks like Android is not just phenomenal but incredibly phenomenal in its growth rate,” said Schmidt. "I should also say that we love the success of the iPhone because the iPhone also uses Google's search and we get a chunk of that revenue when people search on the iPhone."

Schmidt also announced that the company could get similar results out of Chrome OS, but that it is targeted at a different market segment. It’s all about netbooks, smartbooks and cloud.

Anyway, this is an OS. It's success has more to do with the phone makers than with the actual OS. They are pushing it and unlike the iphone OS it's not tied to any particular phone so it's definitely gonna spread more.

But you cannot deny the success of the OS. I've used iOS, WM6.5 and Froyo. Google did a fantastic job of mixing the user-friendliness of iOS with the functionality of WM. Personally, I am running Froyo on my HTC HD2 (A WM Phone), and i'm more than impressed with the Froyo device. I waited a long time to switch but i'm glad I did.
