Android/WP7 activations per day/month

Android activates in one day what WP7 activates in one month ...

He revealed that Google has recorded more than 100 million Android activations to date, thanks to the work of 36 industry partners, 215 mobile carriers, and 450,000 developers worldwide. That broad base of support has brought the number of Android activations per day to 400,000, four times what Google reported in May last year. And Barra said that Google's Android Market now has more than 200,000 applications and that 4.5 billion Android applications have been downloaded and installed. 

One report claimed Windows Phone activated just 674,000 units in the first six weeks of 2011. If you doubled that to get a full quarter, that would be roughly 1.3 million units. Given the data by Canalys though, I think those numbers are low. I find it hard to believe that manufacturers shipped nearly twice as many units than were sold through to customers.
