Excellent! So glad to see this and hope it is accurate - indeed I hope 2011 is the year a significant bite of the Apple hegemony in the smartphone space occurs.

That bodes well for the "app gap" issue.

Looking at the latest figures from AndroLib and 148Apps the iOS app store currently has about 418k active apps, while the Android market has just passed 400k (excluding wallpapers, etc) *.

While there may still be a quality difference between the two, in sheer numbers the app gap seems to be closing fast, and I think we're reaching the point where it ceases to be an issue on Android generally.

There's still a way to go, of course, with apps optimised for Honeycomb tablets, but I'm sure this will have improved vastly by the end of the year.

* Does anyone know if those AndroLib figures are simply an accumulation of the new apps each month or also include apps that have been removed from the market?

how many of them using them to read? Not much, I believe. Many android users are geeks with nothing better to do than install 5 different file managers and zip extractors.

sorry for the bile, I just had lunch...

LOL your lunch must also be effecting your ability to read.

The title says "activating" as in phones not "downloading" apps. What google is implying by "Activating" is the number of new phone/tablet and activating it with a google account.

Well, let's see, if you want an Android phone, there's a vast array of phones, manufacturer's to choose from, different styles, sizes, prices, and capabilities.

If you want an iPhone, well you can have either black or white.

It was only black until very recently, and they sold everything they could manufacture.

There is a market for both.

The pace is going to really pick up once you get $100-$150 Android phones and 3g services being rolled out in many Asian countries like India this year.

You mean like my $150 Optimus V, 3G phone that I use on the Virgin Mobile $25/month plan with unlimited data?

Right-o. The next big revolution will be in the price of airtime. The phones are already cheap -- with a contract you can buy into iPhoneland for $49, and you can get some Android phones for free already.

BTW, it seems that Google dropped that stat to blunt talk about Android peaking, as some analysts had surmised based on the data of only one (US) quarter.

They could have, but they couldn't get the colors of their white parts to match up.
