Android hits 400 million activations with 1 million added each day
It is hard to believe, but three years ago Android had a low share of the global smartphone market and while many felt that the open source operating system had a great future ahead, it wasn't until the November 2009 launch of the Motorola DROID that the OS started to make a move. Today, of course, Android is the top smartphone OS globally. It was the combination of the DROID's hardware and Android 2.0 that started the ball rolling.
With some spectacular Android handsets, like the Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC One X, HTC EVO 4G LTE and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX now available, the daily activation numbers should continue to rise.
