Android Activations Top 550,000 Per Day, Google+ Over 10 Million Members

Google CEO Larry Page was on hand today for his company’s Q2 earnings call and dropped all sorts of impressive numbers for a variety of their products.  Android and Google+ details were front and center as expected, leaving most of us with our jaws on the floor.  Page made sure to mention that Android activations are now topping 550,000 per day (up 50K from June 28), bringing the total to over 130 million devices that have download the over 250,000 market apps over 6 billion times.  Chew on that sentence for a second.

Google+ on the other hand already has over 10 million users according to Page.  That’s right, the service that is still technically closed to the public (invite only), has eclipsed the 10 million mark – impressive.  Oh, and those 10M users are sharing up to 1 billion items per day on the new social network.  I’d say that’s a pretty good start to a service that has to compete with the behemoth that is Facebook.

I’m just interested to hear what these numbers mean to you guys.  Impressed?  Is it possible for any other mobile OS to keep up with Android at this point?  And what about G+ – is it here to stay?

  • I have to express appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this situation. Right after looking out through the internet and obtaining recommendations that were not productive, I believed my life was well over. Living without the presence of answers to the problems you’ve resolved as a result of your main article is a critical case, and the ones that might have negatively affected my entire career if I had not noticed your site. Your know-how and kindness in controlling all the things was very useful. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a point like this. I can also at this time look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for this expert and effective guide. I won’t be reluctant to recommend your web sites to anybody who needs recommendations on this matter.

  • My wife and i ended up being thrilled that Chris could finish up his research out of the ideas he made through the web site. It is now and again perplexing to simply happen to be giving away secrets which often men and women may have been trying to sell. We really do know we have got you to give thanks to for that. These illustrations you’ve made, the simple blog menu, the relationships you can make it easier to create – it’s all extraordinary, and it is facilitating our son in addition to us imagine that that subject is amusing, which is certainly quite essential. Thanks for the whole lot!

  • I intended to create you this very small observation to be able to thank you very much yet again just for the unique suggestions you’ve featured here. It has been so shockingly open-handed with you to allow openly precisely what a number of us might have made available for an e book to generate some cash for their own end, especially now that you might well have tried it in case you considered necessary. Those smart ideas as well acted to provide a great way to fully grasp that other individuals have a similar dream similar to my very own to figure out many more around this issue. I know there are thousands of more fun moments up front for folks who go through your blog.

  • Djstar2k2

    ok i have use slurr in all its forms and revisions and im still in love with stock.  my beef is not with blurr so much as with uncle googs.  i feel mr moto makes great hardware even in the razar days but software is lacking but thats ok to each its own.  for my hard earned money i just want stock and a keyboard and up to date specs but its in short supply when u consider how many android phones are in the world today.  now my beef with uncle googs where is the support for the end users that love your products and your wonderful ui?  clean,crisp,fluid,vanilla,stock ui?  that dont wanna root or have never used a launcher?  where is the support or love for us that early adopted the G1 and og Droid because it was pure and had a keyboard?  where is our freedom from skins and carrier bloat?  i know you got the nexus line but they dont come with keyboards.  i would never root stock the only reason i did was the og Droid would never see a gingerbread update(btw was extremely difficult,folks rooting doesnt always go smooth)by you or vrz.  thats why im upset about the new trend because everything that made android so anti icrap is disappearing.  but look at us for a change we are all tied in to all google products(waiting on a google+ invite star2k2@gmail.com)tablets and such to only get overlooked for believing in the pure google experience.  take a look at us the ones thats champion ur pure product over sense,touch wiz,blurr(motorola application platform), the true faithful that feel stock is flawless,sexy,free of lag(be honest it takes oems a months to get there skins to work on android updates)fluid.  the reason i left tmo for vrz was becuase of android not because of service and definitely not because of pricing.  i broke my contract with tmo to get my hands on the next android to slap icrap and brought many family,friends,co workers along for the ride only to be slapped with skins(many of my android selling or talking points only deal with pure google things not how skins make android better. FAIL!) and bloat.   so where is the love or the selling points from the i dont ads? keyboard, micro sd, vanilla android,color notification leds?  so yes im am little sensitive because after 3 years of waving the android banner,converting the minions,and sticking up for android from a wave of attacks from icrap fans i cant pay for the android phone i want.  wow! every phone site swears icrap is the utmost standard all smart phones should be judged by and for all my arguments uncle googs is sort of ditching me leaving me in the cold with all the things that made android stand on its own now it seems like a keyboard and stock android is for mid to low range phones.  so ill run my og into the ground and when my contract is up i hope there is an worthy option or i might have to give into the other platforms.  its a shame too because many people dont care about whats at the core of all android phones they just want a droid lol(not knowing that that means only vrz).  and lets all be honest there has never been another time in history were a gadget was so widely used for everything like in todays world.  hell my og droid is my daily planner keeps my apts,keeps all my media,tells me the weather,keeps all my people contacts, all social networks,and when i turn the screen off before bed its my alarm clock.  yes i love how stock android looks in dock mode at least in a landscape dock.

    I can’t wait until they take G+ public so all of these invite requests will stop clogging up the comments for so many articles! I like G+ pretty well, but it’s getting tiresome!

    Anyway, Android and G+ are both awesome!

  • I intended to write you that very little remark in order to say thank you once again relating to the magnificent opinions you’ve featured on this website. This has been quite surprisingly open-handed with people like you to grant freely all that a number of us would have offered as an e-book in order to make some bucks on their own, primarily since you could possibly have tried it if you decided. The good tips also worked to provide a fantastic way to fully grasp that other people online have a similar eagerness just as my personal own to see a little more pertaining to this condition. I am sure there are numerous more pleasurable sessions ahead for many who looked at your blog post.

    will the bionic or SGSII be out by August 25th? 199.99 or 299.99?

  • Can I have your phone collection? Back on topic, I don’t think Android can be stopped at this point. With 550,000 devices being activated every day and probably 1 million per day by the end of the year, Android doesn’t look to be slowing down at any point. I really like Google+ too and hope it can one day dethrone Facebook. It will just be hard to get everyone to switch.

    As a iPhone user I finally got a droid x through my job, its a work phone but I’ve been playing with for a few weeks & its good but 550,000 activations don’t mean nothing to me if it isn’t got no strong developer support. Ive been thorugh the app market & I’m not impressed. Good phone, battery is isn’t horrible but what about developers wanting to make apps for your platform that goes for phones & tablets. Ohhh by the way how are there tablets doing did they say anything about that ( yes I know they don’t make tablet)
