Growth of Android statistics – Activation rates leap

03/01/2012

There are now over 700,000 Android devices activated every day, according to a new announcement from Google.

Andy Rubin, co-founder and former CEO of Android and Senior Vice President of Mobile at Google unveiled via Google+ that "there are now over 700,000 Android devices activated every day" and continued in a second posting that "Google counts each device only once" (i.e., they don't count re-sold devices), and "'activations' means a customer goes into a store, buy a device and put it on the network by subscribing to a wireless service".

The figures mark a 40% increase from the 500,000 Android devices per day being activated back in June, and a 27% jump from the 550,000 figure touted during Google's second quarter earnings call in July.

Rubin made the announcement on his Google+ account and later clarified: "For those wondering, we count each device only once (ie, we don't count re-sold devices), and 'activations' means you go into a store, buy a device, put it on the network by subscribing to a wireless service."
