Larry Page confirms 190m active Android devices

CEO and co-founder of Google Larry Page has revealed 190 million Google Android powered devices have now been activated worldwide with the past 60 million coming in just three months

Speaking at the company’s recent fourth quarter profit announcement Google co-founder and CEO Larry Page has revealed more than 190 million Android powered devices have now been activated across the globe.

Led by a selection of market dominating Android smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S II, HTC Sensation and Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, Google’s mobile operating system has gone from strength-to-strength over the past year with Android powered tablets now contenders to Apple’s formerly dominating iPad range.

The official word from the company responsible for the world’s most popular website and search engine has revealed that more than 60 million Android devices have been activated since July of this year with the three month period seeing device figures rise from 130 million to 190 million units.

“The growth of Android is mind-boggling, said Google CEO Larry Page making the announcement. “Over 190 million devices have now been activated globally.”

He added: “I’m super-excited about the soon-to-be released new version of Android called Ice Cream Sandwich, that’s right, Ice Cream Sandwich. You won’t believe what we manage to get done in this release.”

Following the postponement of the planned Android Ice Cream Sandwich launch alongside the Samsung Nexus Prime last week, Google has confirmed it will unveil its upcoming operating system refresh this Wednesday, October 19th.
