Android's milestone

Google can rejoice, as its Android mobile OS is now active on over 130 million devices with 5,50,000 devices activated every day.

Just two months ago, Google announced that it has crossed the 100 million devices activated milestone with over 4,00,000 devices activated daily. But all is not well for the little green robot as Apple still holds the numero uno position with 200 million iOS device activated as on June 2011.

Although there are other mobile operating systems in the market like HP's Web OS on the TouchPad, RIM's OS on the PlayBook and BlackBerry devices and Windows Phone 7 on Microsoft's mobile handsets,

Google's Android seems to be the only OS that can give Apple a run for its money. In the past two years, the Android OS has brought handset manufacturers such as HTC, Samsung, LG, Motorola, Dell and even the like of Micromax on consumers radar as these manufacturers not only deliver quality handsets at affordable rates but deliver a great Android experience as well.

As of June 2011, Apple is still the king of the apps with 4,25,000 apps available to users in the Apps store. In this respect Android isn't even close to Apple as it has 2,50,000 apps in the Marketplace available for users to download.Apple has seen over 15 billion apps downloaded from its app store were as Android lags behind with 6 billion app downloaded.
