Interesting Android 2011 Statistics Shared at Google I/O 2011
Just more than two and a half years ago, Google introduced Android, the mobile OS from Google that will soon be taking over the world – and it really is! Android was launched with the first developer phone, T-Mobile G1, manufactured by HTC. This was in one country, on one carrier.
Google now has an entire Android ecosystem, thanks to all the manufacturers, developers and carriers it has on board. Android is growing at an amazing rate. This is not all.
A few stats were shared a while ago at the first day of Google I/O 2011, where Android Ice Cream Sandwich, Honeycomb 3.1 for tablets, Google Movies for Android, Music Beta by Google and several other announcements were unveiled.
Android stats so far are:
- 100 million activated Android devices
- 400,000 new Android devices activated every day
- 200,000 free and paid applications available in Android Market
- 4.5 billion applications installed from Android Market
This is simply a big wow for a platform that was launched less than 3 years ago. Google is on its way to take over the entire mobile market, and in the not too distant future, Android would soon be available on every electronic item we use.
How? Android is already on mobile phones, tablets, netbooks, TVs etc. It is open-source, and with the help of projects like Android @ Home, Android will be available in what more devices in the future. We just have to wait and see.
If you’re a developer, any plans on how you plan to use Android APIs to create something amazing, or as a consumer, in what area would you like Android to take over next?
