Android Activations More Than Doubled in Past Year

All Things D: At its I/O conference, Google revealed some new statistics about the Android mobile platform. To date, users have purchased 400 million Android devices, and Google is activating 1 million new Android devices every day. At last year’s conference, the activation rate was less than half of that–400,000 per day.

“We’re activating about 12 new Android devices every second of every day,” said Google’s Hugo Barra. “Four hundred million is a pretty huge number, but we’re definitely not slowing down.”
