Google has announced at its Q4 earnings call today that over 250 million Android devices have been activated so far around the world and activations continue at the rate of 700,000 per day. Talking about the downloads in Android Market, company has already crossed the 11 billion mark (just around a month after reporting 10 billion downloads).
Last one year has been phenomenally well for Android as well as Google, apart from the patent lawsuits for Android partners.
“Google had a really strong quarter ending a great year. Full year revenue was up 29%, and our quarterly revenue blew past the $10 billion mark for the first time. I am super excited about the growth of Android, Gmail, and Google+, which now has 90 million users globally – well over double what I announced just three months ago. By building a meaningful relationship with our users through Google+ we will create amazing experiences across our services. I’m very excited about what we can do in 2012 – there are tremendous opportunities to help users and grow our business.”
– Larry Page, CEO of Google
