Over 700,000 Android Devices Activated Per Day

Chart of Android Activations by David Webb

Andy Rubin just posted the latest Android goodness on Google+. Apparently there are now over 700,000 Android devices activated per day around the world. And that’s not counting upgrades.

The full message, posted in two parts on Andy’s Google+ profile:

There are now over 700,000 Android devices activated every day

…and for those wondering, we count each device only once (ie, we don’t count re-sold devices), and “activations” means you go into a store, buy a device, put it on the network by subscribing to a wireless service.

Marcelo Camelo puts it well, when he compares these figures with projected Windows Phone sales:

That's more Android devices in a single day than the forecast for Nokia's Windows Phone sales for the entire quarter.

So if you’re an Android developer, you’re serving a customer base that grows by nearly 5 million people per week, and over 20 million people monthly. That’s pretty incredible.
