Google has been doing nothing but growing since it was founded, less than 15 years ago. The company just had its Q2 2013 earnings call and things are looking very bright. The Search Giant reported $14 billion in revenue, a 19% increase from last year. What is going on with our beloved Android OS specifically, though?
Android activations continue to boom with a whopping 1.5 million activations per day! This is the same number we saw back at Google IO. Even the total number of activations since Android’s 2008 launch is the same – 900 million.
As mentioned above, this is nothing new but it is a nice reminder of how far Android has come. We are sure Google will hit 1 billion activations by the next big announcement.
Let’s hope things pick up. Many believe Android has reached a plateau. Earlier, we talked about iPhone sales beating Android on Verizon. Could it be that we are truly stalling? We certainly believe there is huge room for growth and Android will continue to dominate for a long time.
