Yesterday, in a note, Larry Page stated that Andy Rubin had been stepping down as head of Android; Andy will be replaced by Sunder Pichai. Besides, the Google’s co-founder also updated that Android device activation surpassed 750 million figure worldwide. Apparently, the figure includes the activation of smartphones and tablets only; the update doesn’t tell anything about the other devices such as Android running cameras or more. However, Google updated 500 million figure back in September last year. In addition, Larry Page also said that more than 25 billion apps had been downloaded from Google Play till date.

Undoubtedly, Android is now the world’s most popular mobile platform—considering to both smartphone and Tablet. More importantly, Android device activation is still ramping up with dizzying pace across the world, and there’s no any sign of its slowing down.

This time, everyone might have interested to know when exactly Android device activation will hit 1 billion milestone figure. But our calculation says that the such milestone would be achieved by the platform in October this year.
