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?

        hydro and djstar…I had a couple invites so there you go!!

  • Mark Wilk

    Impressive how many people are subscribed to G+ already. Not sure if it can take down Facebook but it will be interesting to see as soon as they up their capacity.

    Also, hate to be a troll here…anyone got an invite for Google+ they can pass my way :) markwilk (a) gmail.com

    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!

      It’s good to see the Incredible in such a prominent position.

      As a phone geek, I’m EXTREMELY jealous.

      I’m rocking a Thunderbolt, but still have my OG Droid and Droid X (not to mention all of my old dumbphones) because I couldn’t bring myself to sell them. 

      All running CM7, of course. :D

    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.

    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)

      Dude, if you really care that much about your iPhone and iPad, go to an apple blog. This is an Android (specifically DROID) blog. So get the f**k out of here. Coming from a 2 year reader, and everyone else here.
