Google announces they've passed 500 million Android activations

Google reaches 500 million Android activation milestone

Google's Director of Product Management for Android, Hugo Barra, has taken to his social network page over on Google+ to announce that Android devices have now passed the 500 million install milestone. That's right, 500 million Android-based devices are in the wild.




Google are pushing more than 1.3 million Android-based activations each day. This announcement is absolutely mammoth, and I can't really even imagine 500 million Android devices out there, the number is just insane.


Google's Android team should be having celebratory drinks right now, but it looks like my invite was somehow missed. Hopefully Google can send out a private plane for me?
