In September 2012, Google Play Store’s app-installation surpassed the 25-billion-mark. It was big, too big. It is now confirmed that Android has turned world’s number one smartphone OS. This is 150 percent higher than the previous figure 10 billion, which was announced one and half year back.

Android is turning vast beyond imagination. About 1.3 million Android powered phones are activated daily somewhere on the earth (source – TechCrunch – “Eric Schmidt: “There Are Now 1.3 Million Android Device Activations Per Day”). Google revealed that in September 2012, the company noted 500 million activated Android powered phones across the world. It is far higher than iPhone devices activated earlier that month.

However, Apple is a bit ahead in the app-volume race. The company announced that it now has more than 750,000 apps on iTunes, but Google appears to fill the gap soon, as it already has more than 700,000 apps. When Google touched the 10-million-download-mark 2 years back, it offered some most popular apps only at 10 cent for 10 days. And in 2012, it did the same by offering 25 apps at 25 cents for 5 days.

So Android is doubling in size every year. And others like iPhone, Windows and Blackberry experiencing declines. Android application developers are enjoying this movement as their apps have turned the Android the world’s one of the leading smart phone operating systems.

The mark of 25 million download makes some amazing facts, such as the world today has 7+ billion people. If we try to analyze two figures statistically, we will find that about 3.5 Android apps were downloaded for every person alive. With more than 500 million Android devices, every android has more than 25 apps. There may be various other amazing facts and figures when we use statistics for the 25 million download mark.

Users can explore from more than 0.675 million apps available on Google Play. The store has apps for every problem that a smart phone can solve. Android developers are dedicated to the platform, and they keep releasing new apps for it.

Apart from Android developers, there are other aspects that helped Android become world’s leading smart phone OS. The first trait is its openness. As an open source mobile operating system, Android can be used by anyone who wishes to use it. It can also be customized according to the device hardware-environment, and it is its second trait. Another trait is affordability. You can buy an Android powered smart phone even at a $ 200 budget. Android is awesome!
