Android to hit million activations a day

Written by Fudzilla staff


Between late October and December
Back in July, Google boss Larry Page proudly announced that the number of Android activations hit 550,000 a day, just two weeks after Andy Rubin tweeted that the 500,000 threshold was crossed.

Rubin claimed the number was growing by 4.4 percent a week, which basically means more than 900,000 users should be activating their new Android toys each day by now. Analyst Michael Degusta figures the number should hit 1 million as early as October 20 if the growth trend continues. In a less optimistic forecast, with 22,000 new activations a week, the one million milestone should be reached on December 6.

Of course, Degusta noted that the estimate is rough and based on a steady trickle of information coming out of Google. Although it is somewhat surprising that Google chose not make any announcements when it hit 750,000 or 800,000 activations, Degusta believes it is nothing unusual considering past trends.
