Data Monday: Almost One Billion...

by Luke Wroblewski September 16, 2012

There have been 480 million Android devices activated and 400 million iOS devices sold to date. That's a total of 880 million Android & iOS devices entering the market in just over five years. Why is this significant?

  • 1 billion PCs were powered by Microsoft Windows in June 2012. (source)
  • There are 2.2 billion Internet users in the World. (source)

Consider the shift that occurs when iOS & Android put a combined billion devices in people's hands. That's almost half the Internet population of the world and equivalent to the total number of (Windows) PCs in use around the world. Mobile first yet?
