Steve Jobs during his 2010 Apple special music event he said that Apple is activating 230,000 iOS devices a day. He made further point out for those who has new activations and also said that some of their “friends”are counting upgrades in their numbers (200,000 Android activations a day).
“whether we counted upgrades in our numbers they’d be way higher than 230,000?
Jobs thinks, using that metric, Apple is ahead of everybody else.
It seems Google told Fortune that Jobs has it wrong and even add,
“The Android activation numbers do not include upgrades and are, in fact, only a portion of the Android devices in the market since we only include devices that have Google services.”
Now the interesting part is that the Apple and Jobs went to the trouble of bringing the numbers up. We the Apple fans would request’ Apple rival’ why try to play that game with a competitor in the commodity OS business?
