Google: Android tops 1 billion activations
Innovation spurred momentum, says giant
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.
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.
