The firm has tried to determine the time consume by Android to reach one billion users on the basis of reported data. The firm collected the activation rate data from Dec 1, 2008 till Nov 28, 2011, and concluded that the activation of devices had been increasing with constant acceleration.

Asymco has extrapolated that Android will surpass the billion users by November next year. The firm has also predicted that the Android device activation rate would increase to 1.5 million per day by the end of 2013.
