As most will probably now be all too painfully aware, Google and Samsung have decided to delay the official unveiling to the world of the soon to be released Nexus Prime, though have offered no indications as to how long for or when the device can be expected.
Thankfully, today has at last seen some movement, with Samsung having sent out a number of invites to an event in Hong Kong on October 19th, which will be about Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The invites mention nothing about the possibility of the Nexus Prime being included in the proceedings, but the odds are that there cannot really be any bigger news they have to share.
Whilst waiting patiently for news on the biggest Android device of the year to land so far, Google have announces their quarterly earnings, which although reach a whopping $9.72 billion which is a 33% year on year increase, these aren’t really the stats we are interested in.
According to Google, spanning the world there are now 190 million activated Android devices, which is a 55 million increase since July alone. With the figures released, it can be estimated that this quarter alone saw around 611,000 device activations per day, which is 10% growth in three months.
