Google is now activating 850,000 new Android devices daily, increasing its number to 300 million total devices — 12 million of which includes tablets. These stats are according to Andy Rubin, when he addressed reporters at this year’s Mobile World Congress. Rubin allocated the number of devices by counting activations once per device ID; this process left out the Kindle Fire as the popular tab doesn’t provide Google services.

The head of Android also noted how successful Samsung’s Galaxy Tab line of slates were doing, stating how they are the most popular tablets counted. Strange thing is, Samsung didn’t echo those same thoughts, as Hankil Yoon, a Samsung executive, told a group of reporters“Honestly, we’re not doing very well in the tablet market.” Yoon added that the company is optimistic its Galaxy Note 10.1 will be a big success, but at the moment, the company is not in a good position.

Lastly, the search giant mentioned it had obtained more than 450 thousand apps in the Android Market, up from 160 thousand a year ago. These feats are impressive but it’s something that shouldn’t be at all shocking, what’s shocking is the lack of penetration Android tablet’s are making. For whatever reason, people aren’t buying them in droves.
