Google's product development manager for Android, Hugo Barra, kicked off this year's Google I/O conference with something of a stats fest, revealing that 100 million Android devices have now been activated.
Speaking during the Android keynote, Barra celebrated the platform's inclusive set up, claiming its success was down not only to Google, but also the 36 OEMs, 215 carriers and 450,000 developers signed up to the OS.
Barra confirmed that Google is now activating 400,000 devices a day, up from the 300,000 a day rate the firm announced back in December.
Those activations are spread over a total of 310 licensed devices in 112 different countries around the world.
Much light was also cast on Android Market, which Barra said now sports 200,000 apps in total. Consumers are installing an average of 1 billion apps every 60 days, bringing total downloads since launch to 4.5 billion.
Google went on to confirm the launch of Honeycomb 3.1 available today for Verizon 3G Xoom customers and the next version of Android for mobile devices, Ice Cream Sandwich.
