New Android Device Activation Rate is now at 500,000 per Day
 
 

Andy Rubin, Google Android Lead, has tweeted that Google activates 500,000 devices per day now and that the rate is growing by 4.4% each week. There were some reports over the last months that saw Android declining. Others see Apple to dramatically cut into the Android growth this fall with the release of the iPhone 5. Apple said in January that they activate 366,000 iOS devices per day. It is hard to say how much this number has changed since then.

It is clear that Android is growing a lot in the low-end segment with new budget priced Android handset for pre-paid customers. This success is one reason why the Apple iPhone Lite rumor is making sense. There are other reasons on why Apple is not going to compete at the low end as we highlight in this report from yesterday.

This fall will be a crucial point in the mobile OS wars. One outcome I could imagine could be that Android loses market share in the United States this fall to Apple, but still continue to dominate by far globally.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
