Android has been a force in the mobile space since shortly after its debut in late 2008 on the HTC Dream smartphone. Between the beginning of 2010 and February 2012, daily activations of Android grew from 60,000 to 850,000 – a remarkably steep growth trajectory. What is truly remarkable, however, is that these rates do not even tell the full story of Android's growth. Google's figures take into account only those devices that have been connected via mobile networks, meaning that officially reported activations do not include devices such as WiFi-only tablets, eReaders, or the millions of other Android-based products that have already been deployed in a number of different areas. In this QuickCast, VDC’s Jared Weiner discusses why Android is getting so much attention and some of the challenges associated with adoption.
