Google rebadged HTC ‘Nexus One’ phone limps into market; only 20,000 units moved in first week

“To gauge the success of Google’s first handset launch, Flurry leveraged its analytics reach to estimate launch week sales of the Nexus One,” Peter Farago reports via Flurry’s blog.

“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,” Farago reports. “Flurry first week sales estimates can be found in the table below.”

  1. From Mark Twain quotes:

    Figures often beguile me, particularly when I have the arranging of them myself; in which case the remark attributed to Disraeli would often apply with justice and force: “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.”
    – Autobiography of Mark Twain

    this tortured chain of estimates serves no one. Enjoy your iPhone. It is the best mobile computer around. Evangelize it to others by showing them its ease of use and elegance, plus the myriad applications available. Don’t worry about the me-too’s.

  2. I think they will sell at least double of that number in coming weeks, the damn phone is so slippery my former workmate already dropped it on the floor and broke it. Says him: “I knew I should use double sided tape on it but I couldn’t find one that would stick, the case seems to made out of teflon or something”.

  3. Clearly, Apple is dominating the smart phone market now. Time to suck up the next market. Will it be the tablet or the cloud computing service markets? Maybe both at the same time. Does anyone know when that server farm is coming on line? It could be up and running now. Has anyone checked up on it lately? Is that needed to be up so the iSlate can work off it?

    Hello! Talking heads. Hello!
