I wonder how many of these are new to smartphones versus those switching from iOS? I would imagine there are a lot of Apple fans switching to Android now. I'm still on an iPhone 4 but have been thinking about going Droid. Same thing for tablets, I think our next tablet is going to be Android based and not another iPad.

I'd bet that the majority are new, because there are still quite a lot of people using old-style phones. Also probably some people switching from BlackBerry due to the BlackBerry crumble a few months ago.

A lot of people are also just flashing modded roms and it makes you activate all over again.

I'm not sure if modded ROMs count as a whole new activation but then again who knows?
