Google's mobile operating system Android is now being used on 26 phone models and 60,000 phones using Android are sold every day, the US Internet giant's chief executive said on Tuesday.
"There are 26 devices with 59 operators, in 48 countries, in 19 languages so far and it's just the beginning," Eric Schmidt said at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
"We are now shipping more than 60,000 Android devices ... per day and this number doubled over the last quarter," he said.
"Obviously, the growth rate is accelerating and we hope that this growth rate will continue for very long time," he added.
The Android operating system is featured in a number of phones including T-Mobile's G1 and the Droid from Motorola in the United States.
Although Android's share of the US smartphone market is relatively small, it has doubled in the past year to 3.5 percent in October, recent data showed.
