Insert Bad “Android Invasion” Pun Here

Since its launch in 2007, Android’s growth as a mobile platform has been nothing short of spectacular. And if you’re inclined to raise an eyebrow due to that superlative, consider this: Google (GOOG) and its partners are now shipping 60,000 Android devices per day. That’s nearly five and half million Android devices shipped per quarter–not an insubstantial number considering that Apple (AAPL) sold 8.7 million iPhones last quarter.

Furthermore, 60,000 per day is double the volume for last quarter, which bodes well for the Android ecosystem. This sort of growth will undoubtedly attract more developers who will bring more and better apps to the platform–something it sorely needs to compete with Apple’s iPhone OS.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
