Google I/O: There are now 400 million Android devices and 1 million activations a day

Android has now surpassed 400 million Android devices, with a million devices being activated every day. Hugo Barra, director of Android product management revealed the number at the fifth annual Google I/O conference in San Francisco today.

The developing world leads Android growth, with markets like Brasil, South Korea and Japan growing by more than 500 percent year-on-year. This new number puts Google well ahead of Apple, which reported it had sold more than 365 million iOS devices to date in its second quarter earnings call in April.
