Google’s Larry Page met with investors today to discuss Google’s Q2 earnings, reporting a whopping $9.02 in revenue and $2.51 billion in net income, up from $1.84 billion for the same period last year. While those figures are quite astounding alone, Page also dropped a the latest Android activations number. The platform now sees 550,000 handsets activated per day. That’s up from the 500,000 activations per day Andy Rubin alerted us to just a little over two weeks ago. The figure was only 350,000 during Q1, and rewinding the tape a whole year only 160,000 Android activations occurred every day. As for apps, the Android Market with its 250,000 applications has now seen its 6 billionth download. Pretty astonishing growth, indeed.
