Since back in November we’ve talked about Droid’s sales in the first week, we think it is only fair to talk about the latest major iPhone competitor: Nexus One. Palm Pre , Motorola Droid and Nexus One… the only 3 major iPhone competitors and none of them got even close to iPhone sales in the first week.
Flurry estimates that Google sold around 20,000 units in the first week , being outnumbered by Motorola Droid as well with 250,000 units in the first week.
Flurry also estimates that iPhone 3Gs sold 1.6 million units in its opening week, which basic second grade math tells us that it outsold Google’s Nexus One by 80 times.
Flurry’s numbers are just estimates. Flurry works with 10,000 developers building apps. It tracks applications on 80% of the Android and iPhone handsets. When a new handset comes to market, Flurry notes how many apps are being downloaded to the new handset, and then estimates from there.
Of course this is only the first week, and by far the end of the world. Mark my words: attack of the droids is imminent. They are coming, can you hear them?
