Asymco analyst Horace Dediu recently released a report noting that Android has become the third platform to reach 1 billion users. The first platform to do so was Windows, followed by Facebook.

Notably, Dediu reports that Apple has sold around 650 to 700 million iOS devices and is expected to be the fourth to a billion sometime next year. He also noted that while Android is a success story, there is some concern in the reliability of its audience.
