There's 60 Android devices currently, and worldwide over 100k Android phones are being activated every day. 

In the U.S. Android has reportedly passed Apple's iPhone in sales, and worldwide it is expected to surpass the iPhone in units deployed by 2011.  The secret sauce to its success is no secret; Google reemphasized it today.  To date it has 60 Android devices on 59 carriers in 48 countries.



Google shows no signs of slowing down.  Today at its I/O Developer event Google revealed that it is now up to an incredible 100,000 Android activations worldwide per day.  This is particularly noteworthy as it's been just weeks since Google CEO Eric Schmidt claimed an impressive rate of 65k activations per day.

And here's a surprise -- Google revealed that its research shows it has a clear lead in the U.S. market in terms of both internet and app usage -- well ahead of the iPhone.  Apparently even though Google only has a third of the iPhone's apps (50k v. 150k+), the ones it has are good enough for its users to play with them more.  And Google claims 180k developers to boot, so expect more apps soon.

But Google isn't about to rest on its mechanical laurels, so to speak.  Today it unveiled Android 2.2, the secret new version of Android it's been cooking up under the codename Froyo ("frozen yogurt").
