Android device activations set to hit 1 billion soon

For his opening statements in the Google Q2 2013 earnings call, CEO Larry Page took a minute to remind us the number of Android devices that are out there today. Mirroring what we heard back at Google I/O, Page reiterated that over 900 million Android devices have been activated since being introduced in 2008. He also dropped another number, letting us know that at this point 1.5 million Android devices are activated daily.

Those are some huge numbers considering that Google I/O 2012 gave us a milestone of 400 million total activations. At this rate we'll see that magical 1 billion number soon enough.
