Video: Global Android Activations – Visualized

Over the past two years we’ve shared countless numbers, charts, and graphs which gave a clear picture of Android staggering growth.  For a while Google’s been touting their daily new handset activation numbers, but numbers along are pretty hard to visualize.  In an attempt to give us a better idea of what those numbers really look like, Google has posted a new YouTube clip on their AndroidDevelopers channel which shows daily handset activations across the globe since the initial launch of the T-Mobile G1.

Watching the video, it’s pretty clear that the launch of the Motorola DROID and Samsung Galaxy S have both had a tremendous impact on the adoption rate of Android devices.  It’s pretty clear that Android has grown exponentially over the past few year and there’s no sign that Android growth will be slowing down any time soon.

    I love to watch it when the Motorola Droid hits. It shows you what advertising does for devices.

    Congrats, you’ve been beat by Engadget on posting this article by two whole days.

    Engadget has way more articles than this website and they NEVER take weekends off. This website, however, almost never posts articles during the weekend, and they never take two week long vacations like Taylor is currently doing.

    HIRE MORE EMPLOYEES or you’ll loose most of your readers to Engadget.

      I was this article on Engadget, but it was not two days ago. it was more like 5 hours ago since they posted it early this morning (4 a.m.) and I didn’t read it till I got to work a few hours after that.

      Taylor and the team do a great job of bringing up Android news. From what I know, Android and Me only have one full time writer (Taylor – who is currently under the weather after MWC) and a handful of part time bloggers who work full time at other jobs.

      Yes, there are lapses in news every now and then, but it’s not like everyone here just reads one site for everything. I get all my news from 3-4 different tech blogs and I know most of you do as well.

    I love the huge spikes that jump out around handset launches. There’s no doubt that the DROID is what realy made Android take off. Thanks Motorola!
