Live-Blogging The Google Q4 2011 Earnings Call

We’re tuned in live to Google’s Q4 2011 earnings call, where they’ve just disclosed a few details they left out of this morning’s big ol’ data dump. Amongst them: a progress update on Android’s growth.

According to Larry Page, Android has now been activated on over 250 million devices. That’s up 50 million since just November of last year.

Meanwhile, the Android Marketplace has managed to cruise past its 11 billionth download. (For the curious: Apple’s App Store, which is around 3 months older, passed its 18 billionth download in December of last year.) Alas, no word on how many of those were free/paid.
