Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, says that his organisation believes that about 200,000 new Android smartphones are being sold every day. The unexpected success of Android has resulted in an increase in mobile search traffic which translates to significant revenue for Google, as more and more people have phones that are capable of doing a lot of Web searches. Speaking at the first Techonomy Conference, Schmidt added that “people are finally beginning to figure out how successful Android is” and perhaps this explains why so many of the phones are being sold.

This success story marks a significant improvement for Android, which was selling around 100,000 devices a day about 2 months ago. Recent studies show that the growth rate of the mobile operating system is now such that it even exceeds that of the iPhone. However, although it is not known how long the remarkable growth will continue, Schmidt says the recent success achieved by Android is not a threat to the Google’s Chrome operating system, which, when released, will target a totally different market i.e. “early believers in cloud-based storage”.
