Android and Chrome Boss aka Chief Sundar Pichai confirms 900 Million Android Handset Activations for 2013. Yesterday at Google Keynote Press Event, Sundar Pichai, said, 'Android started with a simple goal to bring open standards to the world. Today, it is the most popular mobile operating system in the world.'
He also noted that, 'It's a big number but we have to remember there are over 7 billion people on the planet — we have a long way to go.' Google I/O was the perfect platform to drop such a huge number.
As compared to 2013, the Android activations stood at 100 million in 2011 and 400 million in 2012. Now it reached whooping 900 Million. Sundar Pichai is newly appointed Android Chief.
