If there was any lingering doubt that Android is not only used by the nerdy masses of the world, let it be dispelled. Google just made it known that some 60,000 Android enabled phones are shipped daily.
Playing the math game, that would mean that in a 365 day year exactly 21,900,000 Android handsets would be sold. Assuming that Android grows throughout the year, Android could be pushing out nearly 25 million enabled handsets this in 2010.
