700,000 Android devices activated every day
Apparently its Gaudy Numbers Season in the world of tech. Yesterday we told you about how YouTube notched a trillion viewing sessions over the course of the past year. Today we learn that 700,000 Android phones and tablets are activated every day. Numbers are abstract sometimes, I know, but how about this. That number was 550,000 per day in July, 500,000 in June, 400,000 in May. Last month, Google revealed that 200 million Android devices have been activated to date, setting the stage for Android to pass Apple’s 250 million devices some time next year.
