Ruh Roh. According to data gathered by Flurry, which provides mobile analytics, the hotly anticipated and insanely hyped Nexus One may have only sold 20,000 units in the first week. Translation: that's not a lot. In fact, that's a heck of a lot less than what the Droid did (250,000 in its first week) and certainly leaves a lot of ground to catch up on given that analysts have estimated that the Nexus One would sell 5-6 million units for this year.
Obviously, since there hasn't been much traditional advertising of the Nexus One (unlike the Droid) and you can only buy the Nexus One from Google.com/phone, perhaps Google is handcuffing the potential earnings of this phone. After all, it is the best Android available, it should absolutely be successful. Or maybe sales will be mediocre until it hits Verizon and then we can compare apples to apples--sort of.
Would you consider 20,000 Nexus Ones sold in the first week to be a success or a failure? Or is it way too early to tell? Let us know!
