Android Market: Three Billion Served
In a quarterly earnings call Thursday, Google’s Jeff Huber dropped some interesting stats about our favorite mobile OS. Users have installed more than three billion apps via the Android Market, and those download are piling up faster than ever: the first billion were installed over 20 months; the next billion took five months more; and the most recent billion installations took place over just two months.
Could it be long before we’re talking about a billion each month?
Additionally, Huber noted that Market downloads were up 50% in the first quarter of 2011 over the last quarter of 2010, likely driven by improvements like the web-based Market interface. And daily device activations are up to 350,000.
