During Motorola's big press event today, Google's Eric Schmidt revealed that the company is now activating 1.3 million new Android devices a day. This is a significant increase from the 850,000 that Andy Rubin reported back in February. Of note, however, Schmidt said that the company was "late to tablets," and that of those 1.3 million devices, only 70,000 of those are tablets. Google has struggled to gain marketshare in the tablet market dominated by Apple, and this appears to be the first time that the company has admitted such.
