Google: Android tops 1 billion activations
Google has revealed that it has activated more than 1 billion Android devices since the OS was launched.

Reaching - and surpassing - the 1 billion mark undoubtedly represents a huge milestone for Google, cementing Android's position as the #1 operating system on the market.

Rapid growth

Speaking via Google+, Google's senior VP Sundar Pichai claimed that the innovation of the platform was "driving tremendous ecosystem momentum".

"Huge thanks to the entire Android community from the hardware manufacturers, chip makers and carriers to the developers and content creators to all of you - our Android users around the world - for making this possible," he added.

It was only in May this year that Google announced Android activations had surpassed 900 million, meaning a further 100 million Android devices have been activated in less than four months

That's equal to around 900,900 activations every day.

What do you call someone who has an unhealthy obsession with video games and Sean Bean? That'd be a 'Chris Kerr'. Chris is one of those deluded souls who actually believes that one day Sean Bean will survive a movie. Poor guy.
