Android reaches half a billion installs

Recently we reported on an important milestone for Google’s Maps product that used the word “gigameter”. Today, Google’s Director of Product Development, Android, Hugo Barra, announced another milestone that is even more noteworthy. The Android operating system has now reached the 500 million global installs mark. Barra also mentioned in his post on Google+ that Android is adding 1.3 million new activations every day.

This is quite an accomplishment for Google and their Android team. We congratulate them, thank them for the great platform they have provided, and we look forward to the next post announcing the billion install mark has been reached.
