It may not be earth-shattering numbers, but Andy Rubin and the rest of the Android team members must be happy to hear that 3.7 million new activations occurred during the Christmas period this year (Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). This comes as very jolly news, as Android currently sees at least 700,000 new activations on a daily basis.
On the flipside, analytic firm Flurry published some more stats: 6.8 million new iOS and Android devices went live on Sunday (Christmas Day). App downloads also exceeded any previously known levels for the year, jumping to 242 million on the 25th. Good times. Via: Andy Rubin (Twitter), Flurry
