Tablets and smartphones smash Christmas records

More than 17 million Apple and Android devices, with tablets outpacing smartphones, were activated on Christmas Day, smashing last year’s record by more than 2.5 times.  Christmas Day is the largest single activation day of each year, as consumers unwrap new smartphones around the world. This year was no different, with research revealing the final week of 2012 was the busiest for device activation and app downloads since Apple and Android smartphones first went on sale.
