Flurry: China’s iOS and Android activations passed U.S. for first time ever in February

Peter Farago, writing on Flurry’s blog:

In January 2011, the U.S. 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.  China is now the world’s fastest growing smart device market.  For March, we project that China will account for 24% of all iOS and Android device activations, while the U.S. will account for 21%.

Surely another reason that Apple takes the Foxconn stuff so seriously: China could easily become its biggest market.
