Google “Plays” With Android Activation Numbers

on April 16, 2013

“…there are now 1.5 million Android devices being activated every day, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt said Tuesday. That’s led to more than 750 million Android phones currently in use.” ~ Erica Ogg, Gigaom

Google changed their methodology to only count user visits to the Google Play store when determining which versions of Android are in use. So exactly how many of those 1.5 million daily activations and 750 million overall activated units have actually connected to the Google play store?

Google isn’t saying.

Now why do you suppose that is?
