According to data from Flurry, China has reached more iOS and Android activations than the US.
China is a huge market for mobile. They are one of the fastest-growing regions when it comes to App Store use. They are also a huge source of Apple’s revenue. In fact, Apple’s big 25 billionth download App Store winner was from China. There are a lot of people purchasing apps.
The chart above shows that in February 2012, China just edged over the US as the States dipped in activations. As Flurry’s report says, “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.”
I think we know Apple’s next major target.
