Google Eric Schmidt has done a talk at Dive Into Mobile today, and knowing Schmidt, we're in for quotable stuff. First, Android activations are up to 1.5 million per day now - which is insane. That's one The Netherlands every eleven days. Or, what takes Windows Phone a holiday quarter, Android does in four days. Schmidt also touched upon Facebook Home; a journalist asked him a question about it, referencing a Microsoft statement about Google most likely wanting to block Home, and in reply, Schmidt called Home a "tremendous endorsement" of Android's Play Store strategy.

I've reinstalled cyanogenmod on two phones using different gmail addresses each time and installed another firmware on my tablet using another gmail address.

Maybe I signed in google servers about 10 times with different emails after os reinstalls. So maybe they count it as 10 activations if they don't use some form of hardware id.

I'm not 100% sure but I think they at some time stated that they were counting each device only once no matter if it was flashed or resold, so I guess they would be using the IMEI or some hardware based ID.
