Only 20,000 Google Nexus Ones sold in the first week?
Although some analysts predicted sales of 5 to 6 million units for the Nexus One until the end of 2010, it looks like Google’s first phone is not quite the success the company would have wanted it to be.
According to Mobile-ent.biz, which relies on data gathered by app analytics firm Flurry, only about 20,000 Nexus One phones were sold in the first week since launch (January 5 – January 12). Compared to the first week sales of Motorola Droid (250,000 units) and of Apple’s iPhone 3GS (more than 1.5 million units), this is obviously a low number.
The Nexus One is currently available only in the US, UK, Hong Kong and Singapore, and you can get it only online, directly from Google. The number of sales should be higher after the smartphone will be available in more countries and for more carriers (like Verizon and Vodafone), but I still don’t think there will be 5 million Nexus Ones sold by the end of the year.
Eldar Murtazin points out in a comment to this article that Google will sell other 4 or 5 different Nexus Android phones this year via its online shop, so the company probably doesn’t want to sell millions of Nexus Ones anyway.
