Google: Android eclipses half billion activated devices

Google has officially seen 500 million Android devices activated since the release of the G1 back in fall 2008.  According to Google’s own Hugo Barra, the monumental figure was achieved yesterday, September 11, 2012.  At a confirmed rate of 1.3 million devices per day, we figure it will be summer 2013 or earlier before we hit the 1 billion mark.  Crazy, huh?
