Android activations near a million a day

Rubin rouses ahead of WWDC

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Almost a million Android devices are activated every 24 hours, according to Google's Andy Rubin.

The company's senior VP of mobile stuff revealed the statistics through Twitter where, after insisting he had no plans to leave Google, claimed "there are over 900,000 Android devices activated each day".

Android on the grind

With the tech world primed for Apple's developer conference later today, Rubin's comments could be seen as strategically timed.

Google already revealed at Mobile World Congress 2012 in February that 850,000 'droids were activated daily and with that figure now nudging the million mark, Android's deployment figures show little sign of slowing.

This time two years ago Google revealed the number was around 160,000. How times change. Crack out the Ice Cream. ®
