More than 246 million Android devices this time next year?

AndroidAccording to Google, there are currently 100 million activated Android devices, and the user base is growing by leaps and bounds. Each day, 400,000 new Android devices are activated. That’s the equivalent of 146 million new Android devices per year.

Does that mean that one year from now, we’ll have 246 million Android devices? At the current growth rate, yes, but here’s the thing: Android’s adoption rate so far has been accelerating.

With that in mind, Android should be even farther ahead in a year, especially if it takes off as a tablet OS – the iPad has given a big boost to Apple’s iOS numbers, so there’s no reason to think the same won’t apply to Android.

The only thing that can mess with Android right now is if it ceases to be the darling mobile OS of the various mobile makers out there. If they for some reason decide to rally behind some alternative effort, for example Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7, that could spell trouble for Google.

But at this point, how likely is that to happen?
