Posted May 14, 2010

Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) CEO Eric Schmidt announce today that about 65,000 handsets running on Google Android are being shipped on a daily basis. The average per day has increased by about 5,000 handsets per day since the company’s last announcement in February.

In other related news Google announced that they are canceling sales on the Nexus One Android web store. The Nexus One Android web store allow users to buy the latest Android-powered phones.

“We launched Nexus One in January with two goals in mind: to introduce a beacon of innovation among Android handsets, and to make it quick and easy for people to buy an Android phone,” stated Google Engineering VP Andy Rubin says. “But, as with every innovation, some parts worked better than others. While the global adoption of the Android platform has exceeded our expectations, the Web store has not.”
