Google claims that there are 100 million Android activations

Written by Nick Farell


An army of androids
The use of Google's mobile operating system has rocketed, the search engine is itching to tell us. Since it launched in October of 2008, Android use has jumped from 500,000 activations to 100 million worldwide activations in 2011.

Hugo Barra, Product Management Director for Android said that this time last year, Google was clocking about 100,000 activations a day. That doubled by the time August rolled around, and by December of 2010, Google was activating 300,000 Android devices every single day. As it stands, the company currently activates 400,000 Android devices each day.

Barra says Google now has 310 devices from 36 OEMs in 112 countries across 215 carriers. He also revealed that Google’s 450,000 Android developers have cranked out 200,000 available apps and these have been downloaded a total of 4.5 billion times. The first billion downloads apparently took two years to hit but the most recent billion downloads were done in the last 60 days.

What is amazing is that Google has done all that without you seeing a queue of fanboys or reading a story about how much of a genius the Google CEO is.
