Report: iOS and Android’s History Making Adoption Rate

Mobile analytics firm Flurry has published a new report that says iOS and Android devices have experienced such quick adoption, that their growth rate is faster than any consumer technology in history.

From Flurry, via 9to5Mac:

The rate of iOS and Android device adoption has surpassed that of any consumer technology in history.  Compared to recent technologies, smart device adoption is being adopted 10X faster than that of the 80s PC revolution, 2X faster than that of 90s Internet Boom and 3X faster than that of recent social network adoption.  Five years into the smart device growth curve, expansion of this new technology is rapidly expanding beyond early adopter markets such as such as North America and Western Europe, creating a true worldwide addressable market.  Overall, Flurry estimates that there were over 640 million iOS and Android devices in use during the month of July 2012. 

The history making adoption rate of smartphones is notable. The report showed countries with the largest number of device activations, as well as the fastest growing markets. The results show that the United States is at No. 1 with 165 million iOS and Android activations for July. China led activation growth rate for the same period with a 401 percent activation growth rate.
