Google Nexus One Sold Just 20,000 Units In The First Week
The reports are out of the Nexus One sales during the first week and no, they don’t look as good as they should have been – or atleast with the hype it created, we expected better.
Nexus One sold just 20,000 units on its first week of sales. Flurry estimates that Nexus One was outsold by Droid by more than 12 times, myTouch 3G by 3 times and iPhone 3GS by a staggering 80 times.
Flurry monitors usage of more than 10,000 developers’ applications on iPhone and Android platforms. In total, Flurry tracks applications on approximately four out of every five iPhone and Android handsets in the market, generating over 25 million end user sessions per day. 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. Flurry additionally crosschecked its estimates against Apple actual sales, released for iPhone 3GS, which totaled more than one million units over the three days, June 19 – 21, 2009.
Reason of such report? In our opinion, it was the high starting price and they should have given a gap in between the recent Droid and the new Nexus One. People who have just bought the Droid won’t go for the Nexus One soon.
