Android and iOS Activations go through the roof at Christmas

Android and iOS Activations go through the roof at ChristmasGot an Android handset for Christmas ? You could be one of the 3.7 million people who activated their device on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. A staggering amount considering that there’s 700,000 per day during “normal weeks”. Andy Rubin has jumped onto Twitter to announced the stats himself.

Both Apple and Android saw 6.8 million activations on Christmas Day alone. Apple, according to Flurry.com, also did well. Although there’s no individual figure for iOS activations, we’re assuming the “normal” 700,000 Android activations on the 24th and therefore 3 million on the 25th, which would leave 3.8 million iPhone / iPad activations on Christmas Day. There were also a quarter of a BILLION app downloads on the 25th across both platforms.
