Google I/O 2013 Keynote: Android activations account for nearly 1/7th of the world’s population with 900 million total activations



The Google I/O Keynote is here and we have some fun stats for you. Not only has Android grown as the OS of choice for mobile users, but the platform has grown at an extraordinary pace. Activations have gone from 200 million activations in 2011 to a stunning 900 million activations as of today. While there are 7 billion people on the planet, the fact that Android accounts for nearly 1/7th of the world’s population is a impressive feat. Complimenting the number of activations is the stunning tally of 48 billion app installs, with an eye-popping 2.5 billion app installs in the last few months alone. Yes friends—- the Android platform is not just kicking some ass— but it’s here to stay.
