Google manage 80k Nexus One Sales in January, no iPhone killer yet
Well according to sales figures for the Google Nexus One superphone, it hasn’t been making super sales as the smartphone only shifted 20,000 in its debut week and for the rest of January continued along at the same rate bringing the total figure of Nexus One handsets sold to 80,000 reports mobiletor.
Basically this means that the much hyped Nexus One is no way an iPhone killer, at least not yet as when compared with other first month sales such as the Verizon Motorola Droid which shifted some 525,000 in its debut month, and the iPhone which shifted some 600,000 handset on its debut, the Nexus One falls somewhat short.
The 80,000 Nexus One handset sold for January comes via a Flurry report, and apparently Google’s lack of Nexus One advertising may have had something to do with such low sales.
It could also be that the customer issues with 3G along with the lack of customer support for the Nexus One also added to the low number of sales for the latest Android smartphone. One thing is for sure though; those figures won’t make the Nexus One an iPhone killer or even get near taking the iPhone throne.
