Android up to 200m devices, activation slows to 550K a day

Google Android logoGoogle at its Google Music introduction revealed that Android was now at a symbolic 200 million total device activations. The figure came just half a year after crossing the 100 million-device mark in May. Activations for new hardware were also up to 550,000 per day, although Google didn't say how many of those were tablets.

While positive for the platform, the milestone also revealed that Google's activations were slowing down. A month after Google I/O, Andy Rubin​ had mentioned a 500,000 daily device activation mark. Its quarterly results from July also mentioned the same 550,000 activations as it did now, hinting that the expansion rate might have flattened out.

At Apple's last count from October, it had over 250 million iOS devices of all kinds, most likely putting Google ahead in phones but lagging in overall device adoption.
