Android crosses 500,000 daily activations, poised to reach 1 million by October

You may remember back in December Andy Rubin, Senior VP of Mobile at Google, tweeted that over 300,000 Android phones are getting activated everyday. That was over six months ago and over two years from the launch of Android. But in those six months, the figures have almost doubled and according to his latest tweet, over 500,000 Android phones are getting activated everyday.!/Arubin/status/85660213478309888

That’s not all. The activations are growing at a rate of 4.4% per week, which means by the end of October, three years after the launch of the first Android phone, the number of Android devices getting activated will be just over 1 million. Whichever way you slice it, that’s a lot of phones being activated everyday.

Just in case you are wondering, a device is considered “activated” when you sign into your Google account for the first time on an Android phone. So there could be a lot more Android devices out there that haven’t been activated yet.
