“74 days after the iPhone was introduced at $600 a pop (six hundred dollars), one million were sold. The Droid, at $200: 1.05 million. The Nexus One? An estimated 135,000 units. By any measure, that’s a total sales flop,” Jesus Diaz reports for Gizmodo. “Sure, the Nexus One is only sold online and though T-Mobile, but 135,000 units is a ridiculously tiny amount.”
“Even worse: The sales rate is declining. After its first month, the Nexus One sold 80,000 units. That’s means that only 55,000 additional units sold in the next month,” Diaz reports. “For a cellphone that is being named and talked about every single day by every single tech publication, and often mentioned in the mainstream media, that’s quite embarrassing.”
Diaz notes, “Apple’s iPad sold online, for a higher price and without no phone capabilities, yet it sold an estimated 152,000 units in the first weekend.”
MacDailyNews Note: That iPad figure is an unofficial guestimate.
Diaz continues, “Somewhere in Cupertino, someone is laughing this morning.”
