Nexus One phone: First week sales compared with iPhone, DROID and myTouch 3G

By Alan Ng - Jan 14, 2010

It has been reported that Google’s new Nexus One smartphone has only sold 20,000 units in it’s first week on sale, which is pretty disastrous when you compare that to first week sales of rival handsets.

As reported from BGR, the first week statistics have come from Flurry, who has also provided week one stats for the T-Mobile myTouch 3G, Apple iPhone 3GS and the Motorola DROID.

If you head over to BGR, you can see the chart for yourselves, the results are there for all to see. 20,000 units for the Nexus One, compared to 250,000 for the DROID and the mighty iPhone 3GS managing 1,600,000 units in week one alone.

Is this cause for concern for Google and their Android platform? Probably not, but these figures are definitely not good reading.

    of course the sales are horrible. Nobody wants T-Mobile and most people who won’t switch services for a phone. Although some people look at these devices as toys/gadgets (kids) most people need good phone service first and the toy second. Just look at the iphone, as cool of a gadget as it is and a must have phone many Verizon customers haven’t switched (except for the kids) because they are interested in the phone service over a toy. When and if Verizon gets the iphone then you will see many people switching to the toy and hopefully the service will be just as good with that device. If the Nexus One device is released first on Verizon that device will probably sell like hotcakes. Hopefully it stacks up to the hype. In the meantime I’m just sitting here waiting with my old clunker xv6900.
