Google says the total number of Android devices around the world is past 300 million

Google is looking to boost its Android mobile operating system even higher into the top mobile ranks at the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year, which kicked off today in Barcelona, Spain.

MWC is the world's largest mobile exhibition in the industry. It features top chief executives in the business, who represent device manufacturers, mobile operators, vendors and technology providers. It is an annual conference, and will take place February 27 - March 1, 2012.

Google, which developed the popular Android operating system for mobile devices, made its way to MWC with new devices, apps and facts to share. For instance, Google said that 850,000 new Android devices are activated daily, and the total number of Android devices around the globe has surpassed 300 million. The year-on-year growth rate of Android devices has been more than 250 percent.


Google is also showing off over 100 devices at MWC, including smartphones and tablets, as well as new apps like Android Beam, which allows users to share content via touching two Android phones back-to-back. According to Google, there are over 450,000 apps available for Android-powered devices.

While Android seems to have some powerful statistics, it better keep an eye on that pesky iPhone, which outsold all Android phones combined at Verizon in Q4 2011. The iPhone also outsold Android 4-to-1 on AT&T's network.

One thing facinating about the human mind is, once it's been corrupted and became impure, it's impossible to purify.

Back then I recall the debut of the UK 2012 Olympic logo, I thought nothing of it; until I stumped on a forum someone photoshoped it to include a human head on top left corner. Takes some imagination but it become something dirty. It is now impossible to get that off my mind everytime I see the official logo.

Reminds me of the quote "If you dance with the devil, the devil doesn't change. But the devil will surely change you."
