700,000 Android Devices Activated Every Single Day
Google's Andy Rubin has revealed that the company is now seeing 700,000 Android activations per day. This is up from 550,000 per day in November.
Speaking at its Google Music event in November, Google revealed that it had just activated its 200 millionth Android device. Along with this impressive milestone, the company detailed that it was, at that point, activating 550,000 Android devices every single day. As 2011 draws to a close, Android's growth has not slowed. Andy Rubin this week revealed that the company is now up to 700,000 activations per day.
"There are now over 700,000 Android devices activated every day," Rubin said via his Google+ page, later adding, "And for those wondering, we count each device only once (i.e., we don't count re-sold devices), and "activations" means you go into a store, buy a device, put it on the network by subscribing to a wireless service."
It's not yet clear if this is the final update we'll see from Google for Android activations before 2012 rolls in. However, this, along with November's update, proves that Android adoption is still growing at an incredible pace. Google said last month that the second half of its 200 million activations took just six months to amass.
