Google: Android activations up to 550,000 per day
15, Jul 2011.
Google’s Android activations aren’t slowing down anytime soon. The search giant announced in its second-quarter earnings report yesterday that there are now 550,000 Android smartphones activated each day. That’s a massive figure, and it’s up from June when Google’s Andy Rubin revealed that his company was activating a half a million devices daily. Rubin also noted in June that activations were growing at a rate of 4.4% week over week. If that growth isn’t stunning enough, get this: just two months ago Google said that it was activating 400,000 devices each day and that there were 100 million Android devices in use worldwide. That number is now up to about 130 million and going by Google’s newly revealed stats, it sounds like 200 million devices isn’t that far out of reach.
