Google now activating 500,000 Android devices per day

Google's Andy Rubin has confirmed via Twitter that Google is now activating more than half a million Android devices per day

Google head Andy Rubin has announced that the internet search giant is now activating more than 500,000 Android devices every day as it continues to expand in the mobile and tablet markets.

Making the announcement via his personal Twitter feed Rubin’s revelation comes just months after the company behind the Android mobile OS platform declared 400,000 of its software touting devices were being activated every day.

Speaking on the increase in activations Rubin’s tweet proclaimed: “There are now over 500,000 Android devices activated every day, and it's growing at 4.4% w/w.”

Leading the smartphone market thanks to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S II and the HTC Sensation, both dual-core handsets that run Google’s 2.3 Gingerbread rendition of Android, and making roads on the tablet scene with the Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tab, Google announced last month that it had activated its 100 millionth Android device.

With activations increasing be 4.4 per cent week on week and new reports suggesting that Samsung is to launch the world’s first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device this September in the form of the HD screen touting Google Nexus Prime, it is likely we will soon be reporting the 200 millionth Android activation.

Will Google’s Android platform go on to dominate and revolutionise the mobile market for years to come? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
