    5 Million Android Devices Are Activated Weekly, Over 700,000 Daily, Google Says


    According to a tweet posted by Google’s Android chief, Andy Rubin, a tremendous amount of Android devices are activated daily. Android chief says that over 700, 000 Android devices are activated daily; that’s about 5 million devices each week.

    There are now over 700,000 Android devices activated every day

    If you’re confused on which devices are part of the 700,000 devices activated daily, Randy Robin posted on Google+ that only new devices bought when subscribing to a network (e.g AT&T, Sprint, etc) are counted.

    …and for those wondering, we count each device only once (ie, we don’t count re-sold devices), and “activations” means you go into a store, buy a device, put it on the network by subscribing to a wireless service.

    This clarifies that WiFi devices that don’t require a network activation were not counted, so this is not equivalent to Numbers of Android devices being sold daily.
