Google Nexus One Sells 20,000 Units The First Week Mobile App Analysts Estimate First Figures for Google Nexus One
like a wild guesstimate), has revealed that in its first week the new
Google Nexus One has only managed to sell 20,000 units. It might
surprise some, but our impression is that Google never wanted a
create a big buzz around their phone — although they definitely
have the power and the means to do it — hence why the Nexus One
can't even compare to the likes of Motorola Droid that sold some 250,000
units or the iPhone 3GS that had 1.6 million buyers in the first seven days.
To estimate first week sales totals for the Nexus One, myTouch 3G,
Droid and iPhone 3GS, Flurry detected new handsets within its system,
and then made adjustments to account for varying levels of Flurry
application penetration by handset , the company has explained.
Other than having a larger user base than T-Mobile, Verizon and AT T
(together with Moto and Apple) have been heavily active in advertising
the Droid and the iPhone, spending millions and millions of dollars,
which is why the handsets sold like hotcakes in the first week. So could
it be that Mountain View thought it's enough to come up with a Google
branded handset for it to take on the whole world?
Another reason why the Nexus One disappointed the first week could be
related to the fact that it doesn't bring much to the table, making it
hard to switch to T-Mobile — the number four carrier in the US.
Meanwhile, Google has declined to comment the numbers. �We are not
disclosing sales data for Nexus One phones, � says a company spokesperson.
