Not just that, but there have been 25 billion apps downloaded from the Google Play Store. Interestingly, the 750 million devices activated does not include Amazon's Kindle series, knockoffs, or devices that aren't running any of the Google apps of services. That's 750 million guaranteed Android devices, period.

Where will we be this time next year? 1.25 billion devices and 5 billion+ apps? The Galaxy S IV is nearly here, and I'm sure we'll see 50 million of those sold in the next twelve months alone.
