Ever since Google announced that the total number of Android device activations had passed 900 million back at Google I/O we've been waiting for that magical 1 billion stat to become official. Taking to his Google+ page, head of Android, Chrome and Apps Sundar Pichai revealed today that over 1 billion Android devices had been activated to date.

That's a serious number, and at the rate of at least 1.5 million more activations per day, the milestones are going to keep on coming.
