Google Ships 60,000 Android Phones Daily

Android, Mobile

At last week’s Mobile World Congress, Google CEO Eric Schmidt spoke proudly of the success seen by their Android handsets, saying that the company ships 60,000 units daily, or, when expanded to a yearly total, a whopping 21.9 million units a year.

Mashable has done the math for us, and has found that at that rate of sales, along with potential future growth within the industry, there very well could be more Androids than iPhones at the end of the year.

Before you scoff at Google’s Nexus One, which has had poor sales thus far, this proves that the Android platform itself is performing just as Google had intended. It will be very interesting to see how the competition develops as Google’s numbers continue to grow.
