Are you ready for the latest numbers from Android? During the Motorola event in New York City, which just wrapped up a few hours ago, Google CEO Eric Schmidt announced on stage that 1.3 million Android devices are being activated daily, of which 70,000 are tablets. He further added that the official number of Android devices activated reached 480 million total, which is just shy of a 500 million mark that is sure to hit soon. Furthermore, thanks to a little math, it looks like Google could cross the 1 billion-activation mark within a year. You can catch up on the rest of the event from our Motorola hub.
