Over 300 million Android devices in the wild

Thanks to a massive 250% year-over-year growth, Android devices have crossed the 300,000,000 sold mark, Google’s announced, 12,000,000 of which are tablets.

Kindle Fire and other devices that don’t make use of Google services aren’t counted among the bunch.

The number isn’t slowing down, either, with a staggering 850,000 Android devices being activated on a daily basis, according to Google SVP Andy Rubin, who’s also given an update on the status of apps available for the platform; there are now over 450,000 apps available — the number has tripled from a year ago — with each month seeing over a billion downloads.

“These numbers are a testament to the break-neck speed of innovation that defines the Android ecosystem, “ Rubin says on Google’s Mobile blog.
