Android at 100 Million units, 400K Activations per Day, 200K Apps

Posted by at 10:58 am on May 10, 2011

Google started off its just-wrapped Google I/O day one keynote with progress on how Android was growing. The platform is now up to 400,000 activations per day, up from 300,000 in December. Its growth rate had helped the platform reach 100 million total devices since it started off in October 2008.

The company also said it had managed to cross 200,000 active apps in Android Market. Its milestone is the first official piece of data since reaching the 120,000-app mark last year. Companies have been mentioning the 150,000-app mark in press releases but have never had the figure independently mentioned by Google.

Google’s data puts Android’s library at more than half the officially claimed Apple figure for the first time, with the iOS App Store having had about 350,000 apps at its last official count and 371,185 listed in unofficial stats today. The figure nonetheless shoots down optimistic estimates that Android Market would pass the App Store by August, since those figures had Android at 294,738 apps, well above reality.
