Android By The Numbers: 850,000 Devices/Day, 300 Million Phones, 450,000 Apps


Andy Rubin has been walking around Mobile World Congress 2012, and while we haven’t seen him, we HAVE seen his post on Google+ regarding Android’s most recent numbers.

Yes, you squinted and read that right:

  • 850,000 Android phones and tablets are activated each day
  • There are 300 Million Android Phones in the wild
  • There are 450,000 Android Apps on Android Market

That’s some pretty impressive stuff. It sounds outrageous, and if you take a walk around MWC 2012, it’s hard to find an area that doesn’t involve or promote Android in some way, shape, or form.

Onward and upward (and downward)!

I'm an Android and Tech lover, but first and foremost I consider myself a creative thinker and entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for ideas of all sizes. I'm a sports lover who cheers for the Orange (College), Ravens (NFL), (Orioles), and Yankees (long story). I live in Baltimore and wear it on my sleeve, with an Under Armour logo. I also love traveling... where do you want to go?

  1. This is a beautiful story the only stuff still not working so well are tablets… Maybe it’s to complicated, too much choices and finally customers going for ipad ? Samsung now offer a tablet for 100 €/$ less than ipad maybe they make a good choice ?

  2. wow, they were at 700k activations/day only a few months ago. This is quite prominent, actually.

  3. I thought……. isnt there like 800k androids apps and games in the market?….
