In January 2011, the USA accounted for 28% of the world’s total iOS and Android device activations, while China accounted for 8%. In February, Flurry calculated that China surpassed the United States in monthly new iOS and Android device activations for the first time in history. It is expected that Chine will account even more percents in the next following months and will become the world’s fastest growing smart device market.
USA currently has more than twice as many active devices than China. However, China, a quicker growing, emerging market, already has twice as large an installed base as the next largest market, the UK.
