If there was any doubt that Android was not a force, a simple tweet from the founder of Android should quench your doubts. According to Andy Quinn’s tweet, over 300,000 Android devices are activated each day.
That is an enormous number of phones and goes on to show that Android has finally arrived and is taking over iOS big time. Android has surely inched a lot since it was started out. In the past 6 months itself, Android has almost doubled it’s daily activation, back in July they were doing about 160,000 a day.
Android is also quickly gaining on iOS in another department, apps. According to the Android Apps watchdog Android Lib, over 23 Billion Android apps have been downloaded till date, and the count just goes up every second. In addition to that there are currently around 20K+ apps being added each month. In the past 8 days itself, 7131 apps were added to the Android market.
So is Android slowly inching towards gaining over iPhone? Also Apple does have the iPad which gives them an added advantage over Android currently, but considering the number of Android based tablets being launched by next year, Apple has Google breathing down their throats.
