Android still on track for 1 billion activations by end of 2013
Earlier today, Google CEO Larry Page announced that Andy Rubin would be stepping down as head of Android, and Chrome head Sundar Pichai would be taking over. But, Larry also gave some interesting stats on the state of the Android ecosystem, and based on the numbers he gave, it looks like Android is still on track to hit 1 billion activations by the end of 2013.
Still, it is a very large number, and according to Benedict Evans Google is still on track to hit 1 billion total activations before the end of the year. Evans estimates that 1.4 million Android devices are being activated every day, and by our calculations that puts Android on pace to hit 1 billion activations by mid-September.
