China has reportedly past the U.S.A. to become the world's top smart device market, according to Flurry Analytics.

Just days into the Chinese New Year (Year of the “Snake” for anyone keeping track), China has passed the U.S. to become the world’s top country for active Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. This historic milestone takes place a year after Flurry first reported that China had become the world’s fastest growing smart device market. Since then, it took China’s rapidly growing middle class just twelve months to close the gap on the U.S.

In January there were 222 million active smart devices in the U.S. versus 221 million in China. However, at China's current rate of growth it has now surpassed the U.S. and estimated to have 246 million active smart devices at the end of February compared to 230 million for the U.S.

"We also conclude that the U.S. will not take back the lead from China, given the vast difference in population per country. China has over 1.3 billion people while the U.S. has just over 310 million.", says Flurry.
