Google Activating 500K Android Devices Daily *4.4% growth per week!*

GOOG!


Google Android was launched in October 2008


Half a million Android devices are activated every day, a number that's growing 4.4% each week, Google's Android chief Andy Rubin revealed in a tweet.

Google announced at its annual Google I/O conference last month that as of the beginning of May, the tech giant was activating 400,000 Android new devices each day.

He also noted that the platform is growing at a rate of 4.4-percent every week, which means that Android could hit 1 million daily activations by October if this keeps up.

Back in January, Apple announced (in a roundabout way) over 360,000 daily iOS activations, and at that time Google was seeing 300,000 activations.

But just in case we have forgotten, Chief Android, Andy Rubin took to Twitter this morning [June 28, 2011] to remind us just how fast the platform is expanding.

Google describes itself in press releases as, "Google's innovative search technologies connect millions of people around the world with information every day. Founded in 1998 by Stanford Ph.D. students Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Google today is a top web property in all major global markets.
