Andy Rubin continues to use his Twitter account as the broadcasting platform for Android's latest statistical achievements. This time, he's letting us know that a magnificent 3.7 million new Android devices were activated over the holiday weekend. The 1.85 million daily average more than doubles Android's current rate of 700,000 daily activations and marks a rather successful period for vendors of Google's mobile OS.

Flurry Analytics has also published its findings on new phone and app purchases over the weekend, noting that a staggering 6.8 million new iOS and Android devices went live on Sunday. That's three and a half times the December average. App downloads also exceeded any previously known levels, jumping to 242 million on Christmas Day.
