Over 900,000 unique Android devices are activated every day according Google’s senior mobile Vice President Andy Rubin.

The figure is an increase of 50,000 devices since February.

Responding to rumours that Rubin may soon be leaving Google, he stated that has “no plans’ to leave the company.

    My Nexus S is still chugging along quite nicely. I really do hope that Google will update it to Jelly Bean though. If I had to choose my biggest problem with Android, it’d be fragmentation, too many devices with too much inconsistency, I do hope Google start to fix this so that all devices can be properly supported. I’m not saying limiting customer choice like MS & Apple, I think both budget & super-phones have their places, along with some room in between. These days you can pick up a $50 Android phone outright, no carrier obligations, that ain’t too shabby, of course you’d be stuck with a 600MHz processor & 256MB of RAM but you shouldn’t expect anything more.

    I don’t know about other Android users but since the last big update my HTC Sensation has been running like shit. Constantly having to restart it, it slows down completely and switching between apps and even going back to the home screen seems to be a struggle for it.

    Gutted, because before the update it worked like a dream. :/

    @2, My mate has a problem with his HTC One X, everytime he closes an app, it has to reload the entire launcher, so this leads me to believe that it’s a problem with the Sense overlay, in which case, you’re better off getting an experienced friend of yours to root your phone & install a custom ROM such as CyanogenMod.
