With the announcement this morning of Android 4.4. ‘KitKat’ there was another tidbit of information inserted gently which announced that there have now been 1 Billion Android devices activated worldwide.

The information came in the same Google+ post from Sundar Pichai that announced the arrival of the latest statue to the Googleplex in Mountain View. Speaking about the tremendous Android innovation that is driving their partners to create products he said

I’m excited to share that together we’ve now passed 1 Billion Android device activations. Huge thanks to the entire Android community from the hardware manufacturers, chip makers and carriers to the developers and content creators to all of you – our Android users around the world – for making this possible.

At Google IO, it was announced that there had been 900 Million Android activations, which at a reported 1.5 Million activations per day, means there is still a lot of milestones to come.

How many Android devices out of that 1 Billion do you own?

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.
