According to a recent  tweet from  Andy Rubin, 300,000 Android phones are activated each day. This number  has  increased from 200,000 just a few months ago. This posting might be a reaction to recent article published on AppleInsider claiming that Google hit a plateau at 214,000  activations a day. Whatever the right number is, a few things are clear:

A. Apple and Google positioning themselves to be the only Smartphones in town (Remember Blackberry, Nokia, Microsoft-Windows-Phone?).
B. Smartphone shipments are quickly approaching the PC shipment volume of about 88M units (Q3/2010 according to iSuppli).
C. Mobile Internet is tracking to become bigger than traditional Internet.

What are the implications of this to the consumption of information and social media?
