Activations of iOS and Android devices increased by 332% on Christmas Day, reports Flurry Analytics.

Flurry established a baseline using the average from the first 20 days of December. Over this period, daily activations averaged around 4.0 million per day, with variance of a few hundred thousand in either direction per day. On Christmas Day, activations soared to more than 17.4 million, a 332% increase over the December baseline. By comparison, Christmas Day 2011 held the previous single-day record, having reached 6.8 million device activations.

Notably, app downloads also increased on Christmas Day with a volume increase of 112% measured over the December 1 - 20 baseline. Flurry reports that this increase also resulted in a record download day, besting any previous day in history.
