Data Monday: Over One Billion...

by Luke Wroblewski September 9, 2013

Last year I noted with enthusiasm that Android and iOS were approaching one billion devices. Notable because there were a billion PCs in the market that year. Today the mobile billions are here.

  • 1 billion PCs were powered by Microsoft Windows in June 2012. (source)
  • Last September there was a combined total of 880 million Android & iOS devices in the market. (source)
  • Android reached one billion devices in July 2013. (source)
  • Apple sold about 600 million iOS devices and is expected to reach a billion sometime next year. (source)
