1.3 million Android Activations per Day

“Of those 1.3 million daily activations, Schmidt said that around 70,000 were for Android tablets, and he put the installed base of Android devices at around 500 million devices.”

see The H Open – Google: 1.3 million Android devices activated every day.

It is puzzling why Android/Linux has been such a spectacular success for smart phones yet continues to lose ground to Apple’s walled garden on tablets. Is it the lawsuits? The cool? The quality? The price? I don’t see it. Retailers are offering a variety of Android/Linux tablets and they are best-sellers. Perhaps OEMs are not letting them connect to Google’s market somehow so they are not being counted… Perhaps the problem is that many still do not run Android 4.x.

    oldman the problem here is some-things take a long time some-things take a short time.

    –but if my past experience is any guide its going to take at least 2-3 years before this considered safe enough for Red Hat to include in their distribution.–

    The problem here libreoffice by html5 is not doing something special other than clean its code base up not todo X11 calls and other nasty issues for Wayland. GTK Broadway interface opens up the HTML5 interface. GTK Broadway is in the redhat development lines for next release.

    –It takes YEARS before such an app makes it into the commercial support matrix.–
    Unless of course is already in their and its functionality is just going to be expanded then it takes a lot shorter time frame. This is what we are talking about with LibreOffice.

    Affresco is hiding libreoffice as a back-end used item same with many other existing solutions.

    Something has entered by stealth oldman. Its a very small step from hidden in backend to provided to user as well as backend.

    We are already 2 years in of it being commercially deployed as part of web solutions oldman just with interface hidden.

    oldman reality here is you have spent so much time on Microsoft solutions you have not seen what been happening.

    Citrix XenApp is not 100 percent integration into you backend share-point equal or your CRM or anything else. Citrix XenApp nothing like level of integration I am referring to.

    The reality here is not only Libreoffice that will be able to operate over HTML5 huge number of other applications will be as well. So the web ecosystem is about to turn fun.

    “This is the problem oldman there are lots of things that are part way along that a person like you would not even be aware of.”

    I am well aware of them. I am also aware of what will and will not be accepted in businesses. Hackers like yourself may dabble in early or first release code. but if my past experience is any guide its going to take at least 2-3 years before this considered safe enough for Red Hat to include in their distribution. And even longer before business users take it up. Assuming that they do take it up.

    “You Laugh because you simply don’t have a clue and your prove it by your statements Oldman. We are not talking 0.1 events here.”

    Nope. I laugh because you have been proven over and over again a load of crap. You keep talking as if the mere release of a piece of code that performs a specific task that you are pushing means its game set and match. were you actually involved in an enterprise and actually supporting enterprise apps that need to work, you would know that it doesnt work that way Hamster. It takes YEARS before such an app makes it into the commercial support matrix.
    And even longer before it gets into the enterprise.

    We dont just implement the first crap like you seem to do.

    And as I said with Citrix XenApp in the mix, it may even be irrelevant.

    oldman there is a problem here segments required are already in the commercial distributions SUSE and Redhat for libreoffice by web.

    We are already 2 years in on the Libreoffice by web.

    This is the problem oldman there are lots of things that are part way along that a person like you would not even be aware of.

    You Laugh because you simply don’t have a clue and your prove it by your statements Oldman. We are not talking 0.1 events here.

    “There is so much changing in this 12 months. Libreoffice if current time lines hold will be webbrowser from server by then.”

    Over and above the fact Which is going to translate into at least a year of debugging so that we can get past version 0.1. Then we have to wait untill the commercial distros (Red Hat and SUSE) vette the result and incorporate it into their shipping product. Now we are 2-3 years out.

    In the meanwhile I will have been rolling access to MS Office via Citrix XenApp?

    “Same with driver issue of Linux got under control.”

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA….

    Hamster, You are funny.

    There is so much changing in this 12 months. Libreoffice if current time lines hold will be webbrowser from server by then.

    “Here’s an even better laugh.”

    The real laugh is that you think that you know what you are talking about.

    “METROFAIL…”

    Lets see where we are in a year.

    Here’s an even better laugh. At M$, one plus one really equals to three! Developers…Developers…Developers better get to developing for METROFAIL.

    Start at 3:30.

    Tablets represent a higher investment cost and the iPAD took off from the gate first. Android is playing catch-up, but will surpass soon enough.

    The coolest thing I have seen done with tablets is use as a control panel HUD depicting live weather radar, nav charts, GPS and approach plates in private aircraft.

    So far the most successful tablets seem to be the iPad and the Kindle. What do they have in common? Oodles of content. While the Kindle obviously has all those Amazon ebooks, all kinds of newspapers and magazines are available on the iPad, and much less on any Android.

    And the iPad has pretty cool apps, too:

    Yes, the music is crap, but those apps seem pretty good. Don’t expect to see them anytime soon on Android, however.
