Android Statistics: 750 Million Android Devices On The Planet NowMarch 14, 2013 6:41 am
We had been living with these two numbers in mind for a while now – half-a-billion Android devices on the planet, and half-a-billion iOS devices. Well, we need to most definitely change one of those – and this new number comes from Larry Page, Google CEO. This is what we spotted: there have been 750 Million Android activations so far – that is a huge jump, from September when we heard that half-a-billion number. Larry Page used this stat in his announcement of Sundar taking over the Android group from Andy Rubin:
“The pace of innovation has never been greater, and Android is the most used mobile operating system in the world: we have a global partnership of over 60 manufacturers; more than 750 million devices have been activated globally; and 25 billion apps have now been downloaded from Google Play. ” (Source) – all solid numbers there.
The one number that is not mentioned there but we kind of know – is the number of apps on the Google Play store, it is more than a million now, and is slightly ahead of iOS there as well.
