Sure, new Android devices are released more often than any mobile platform, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the operating system has spread like wildfire over the years since its inception. During its second quarter earnings call, Google reported some astounding numbers for Android, further establishing their foothold as one of the market's leading mobile platforms.
At Google I/O in May, Google reported that over 100 million Android devices were out in the wild. Now, the number has made a dramatic jump in a very short time, up to 130 million. Backing up the numbers, over 550,000 Android devices are being activated daily, an increase of 150,000 daily since Google I/O.
The total number of devices sits under the 200 million that Apple reported at WWDC, but considering that the iPad has a huge lead in the tablet market, there is still plenty of room for Android to grow and, you can be sure, Google has no plans of slowing down.
