The 3.7m figure is significantly higher than the normal ~700k activations per day Android sees, which makes sense really. What I WOULD love to see is a breakdown of those activations by manufacturer / device / territory / device cost / phone vs tablet... there's no doubt in my mind that the stellar numbers are driven as much by Android's penetration into the low end of the market as well as powerhouse halo devices like the Galaxy Nexus. Bear in mind this number doesn't include devices like the Kindle Fire and dodgy Chinese tablets with no Google Services on them, so the number of Android devices getting their first boot was probably even higher!
I wonder what the number will be next year...!
