Google found the time to sneak in some pretty interesting numbers before Apple held the day hostage with its iPhone 5 announcement. The search giant announced an incredible milestone of 500 million Android device activations. Hugo Bara, Android’s director of product management, touted the company’s glowing achievement in a Google+ post saying, “Today is a big day for Android… 500 million devices activated globally, and over 1.3 million added every single day.”
Google is top dog in mobile devices sold, and wanted to make that point known to the world while Apple introduces us to it’s newest iPhone. I am not sure those numbers will sway many iPhone faithfuls as the iPhone 5 is looking mighty impressive.
