Android Activations at 1 Million per day – 400 Million devices so far


I missed out on one of the stats that Google threw up on the screen at yesterdays Google IO Keynote, Google announced that activations of Android devices has now progressed from 900,000 per day just over 2 weeks ago to now 1 Million activations per day, totalling 400 million devices world wide. Bear in mind these are individual devices based on the unique Identifier of the phone. Pretty impressive growth there Google, check out the video they put up :

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Microsoft Windows only ships about a million copies a day. So give it another few weeks, and Android becomes the world’s fastest-selling OS!

My tab P1000 gets a new ID every time I do a factory reset, I am testing ROM builds so this can be quite a few times a day. That unique ID isn’t so unique. I know I am a rare case but still if it is the same for everyone getting a new ID with a factory reset then the numbers are bigger than reality.
