Android Activations More Than Doubled in Past Year

Some big numbers were uncrated onstage at Google I/O today. During the event’s opening keynote this morning, Hugo Barra, director of product management for Android, said 400 million Android devices have been sold so far, and one million Android devices are activated each day.

That’s some impressive growth. Announcing similar metrics at last year’s I/O keynote, Google said it was activating less than half that: 400,000 Android devices a day. And just a few weeks ago, Google’s senior mobile VP Andy Rubin said Android was at about 900,000 activations each day.

“We’re activating about 12 new Android devices every second of every day,” Barra said. “Four hundred million is a pretty huge number, but we’re definitely not slowing down.”
