Vodafone UK iPhone vs. Nexus One: Sales Review

Last week we gave you those first sales figures for the Google Nexus One, if you thought that they were poor, then they look much worse compared to the release of the iPhone on Vodafone UK. Although the network is now the fourth to sell the iPhone 3GS in the UK, do not think that it has lost any of its appeal.

The iPhone 3GS has now been available for 6 months, but Vodafone customers are now getting their chance to own the world’s most popular handset, 50,000 were pre-ordered before it had even launched.

You have to wonder how 6-month old technology is able to outsell new technology from Google by two-and-a-half times in just one day. However, according to The Next Web, Google has a number of things going against it, the nexus One is only available in the U.S. on the T-Mobile network as well as an unlocked version.

The Google Nexus One will only be available to four countries, and because you have to purchase the handset online, people do not want to purchase a new phone without seeing and touching it for themselves. This is not the launch that Google had envisaged with the Nexus One.

The Next Web believes that Google should have built up pre-orders before release and allowed people to see review units in store. One thing is certain, Vodafone in the UK selling more units of the 6-month old iPhone compared to the one-week old Nexus One is great news for when Apple launch the new iPhone 4G, which is rumored to be launched in the first half of 2010.
