Google reveals that 900,000 Android devices are activated every day

Rise of the robot

Google has revealed that 900,000 Android handsets are activated each day.

According to Google's SVP of mobile and digital content Andy Rubin, this figure has grown from the 850,000 daily activations recorded back in February, a testament to the increasing popularity of Google-powered devices.

Earlier this year, Rubin also claimed that Google Play - then referred to as the Android Market - was hosting an impressive 1 billion downloads a month.

However, given the steady increase in handset activations, not to mention the arrival of huge Android hits like Temple Run and Angry Birds Space, we wouldn't be surprised if that figure has swelled significantly, too.

The question is: how long before The Big G hits the 1 million activations a day milestone?

Not long, we'd wager.
