Smartphones by the Numbers

500 million. Android No. 500 million was activated earlier this month somewhere in the world, with 1.3 million being activated by the day. At hat rate, you could expect to see Android No. 1 Billion activated before this time next year.

400 million. Apple has sold over 400 million iOS (iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch) devices in the past five years. You can expect them go past 500 million by middle of next year.

5952 Quadrant Points - HTC, smarting from the drubbing its One X received at the hands of tweaked Android 4.04 to maximize the performance of its Tegra 3 chipset resulting in almost 6000 points in the quadrant benchmarks, leaving the Galaxy S III at a far second place with 5395 (Source: GSM Arena)

342 ppi. With the new iPhone 5 being launched with a display with 326 pixels per inch, and the Nokia Lumia with a 332 pixel per in display, Sony can hold on to the sharpest smartphone display in the world title with the 342 ppi displays on their Xperia S and Xperia acro S.

6.68 mm. While Apple claimed at its Apple iPhone 5 launch that it was the thinnest smartphone in the world at 7.6 mm, they seem to have forgotten about the 7.1 mm thin Motorola RAZR's and the world thinnest smartphone, or 6.7 mm Huawei Ascend P1s.
