Google smartphone chief has said that carriers are activating over 300,000 Android devices every day.

Google Vice President Andy Rubin revealed the figure in a Twitter posting, just two months after Google CEO Eric Schmidt said that the company had reached the 200,000-per-day milestone.

The new activation figures appear to put Google on par with Apple, which according to the latest official figures is activating 270,00 mobile devices a day. That figure was released by Apple CEO Steve Jobs in October, though that figure is expected to rise during the peak holiday season.

Apple still retains a significant advantage over Google since it makes money on the iPhone hardware while Google's only makes money from Android because it increases the level of advertising on the mobile web.
