Google announced its overall financial figures last night, giving us a few snippets of news about how well Android has been contributing to the business. Claiming that there are now 190 million Android devices out there around the world today, Larry Page, Google’s CEO, also said that Android contributed a staggering $2.25bn to Google’s bottom line in ad revenues.
That’s a lot of people accidentally clicking on banner ads, eh? The last time Google spoke on device numbers was back in July, when it said 130m Android devices were out there. Here’s more of Larry:

The growth of Android is mind-boggling too. Over 190m devices have now been activated globally. I’m super-excited about the soon-to-be released new version of Android called Ice Cream Sandwich, that’s right, Ice Cream Sandwich. You won’t believe what we manage to get done in this release

Looking forward to it, Larry!

And that’s the Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 update Larry has no doubt been testing himself for several months, which is now scheduled to be launched, or at least demonstrated by Samsung and Google, on October 19th.
