Android Activation to Reach 1 Billion by Early Fall!

This is a quick update. As reported by Horace Dediu of Asymco, Google has said that the total WW Android activations is 750 million.

Working backwards and using pro-ration to derive a per day activation, Horace Dediu forecasts Android install base to reach 1 Billion by the end of August, 2013.

On another note, Andy Rubin, the founder of Android has stepped aside to let Sundar Pichai head the Google Mobile OS. Sundar has been head of Chrome and now the management re-jiggle has brought two of Google's prominent OS programs under his wings. Best of luck Sundar!

Like I said, this was a quick one!
