mobile According to the study conducted by analytics company Flurry, Google sold only 135,000 number of Nexus Phones since its launch in the market 74 days back. On the contrary, Motorola sold 1.05 million Droid phone and Apple sold 1 million iPhone during the same timeframe. In the same context, iPad sold 1,52,000 units in the first three days of its online-only sale. The Nexus one is only available on line and through T-mobile.

The original iPhone cost $600 when it was launched and it’s a new type of phone. The Droid from Verizon sold for $200 during the holidays and the selling volume was very high. The iPad is a totally new and unique product.

Blackberry is still the number one smart phone, but that will soon change. iPhone is gaining very quickly while Blackberry is starting to lose the customer base due to bad tactics. Android is gaining ground but not close yet, Microsoft and Palm are on the way out as well.

The only reason why Nexus didn’t make it SO successfully is that for whatever reason, Google isn’t placing much effort in spending marketing money. Perhaps they’d rather spend it on building a strong OS and maintaining search, but I really think they can afford a few dozen million and make the thing pop out! If they spent half of what Apple spends, they’d be a definite contender, plus don’t limit it to T-Mobile - why?? its Android! it DOES!

How is this a failure for a company that specializes in software [the same software that powers the top selling phone in first 74 days] that never promoted their product traditionally and released their product to a carrier with the smallest base?

How do these figures compare to the Blackberry, or is it possible to compare?
