Google Hits 190 Million Activations of Android Devices

In an earnings conference call, Google has unveiled some massive achievements. The Google’s CEO, Larry Page announced on Thursday that his company has seen 190 million activations of Android devices all over the world during the third quarter of 2011. According to Google, its current earnings have surpassed the estimated earnings by $1 billion to stand at $10 billion.

Back in May, Google revealed that it had 100 million activations of Android devices, while the numbers increased to 500,000 activations a day in June across 36 OEMsand 215 Carriers. During that time the available number of Android developers were 450,000 and 200,000 apps were offered to customers. However, the overall earnings of Google from all of its mobile commerce were stood at $2.5 billion.

Compared to Google’s previous results announced for May suggesting 576,000 activations a day, there have been 90 million activations on average over the last 156 days since May 10th. These are undoubtedly massive numbers for any platform. Google must be happy seeing such a significant growth of its mobile platform because this will expand the options for Google to put its ads on more Android-powered devices.

While answering a question regarding Android, Larry Page quoted its acquisition of Motorola Mobility and said, “We’re serious about protecting the Android ecosystem…we see Android going Gangbusters.”

Larry Page’s reference to Motorola Mobility acquisition here do have some weight as he intentionally wanted to convey the message that it already has a place in mobile business, irrespective of Google’s partners. The acquisition of Motorola is a clear sign of Google’s intentions to hold its own mobile market and the search giant certainly has the potential to do so.

If we talk about Apple’s iOS platform, it is leading the market with 250 million activations of which 100 million belongs to iPhone. Apple revealed these numbers in its recent media event ‘Let’s Talk iPhone’.
