Nexus One Sales Poor Due to Google and T-Mobile Says Analyst
It appears the Android Nexus One superphone isn’t doing as well as expected, and analyst company Terfis has stated that “weak” sales of the Nexus One so far can only be blamed on Google and T-Mobile, reports and article over on phoneplusmag.
Estimates by Trefis put Nexus One sales in the first month after availability at 80,000 so basically the 20,000 per week we’ve all heard about. Trefis believes that lack of marketing effort on Google’s part to promote the Nexus One, and their web based storefront is inadequate.
They also point the accusing finger towards Nexus One carrier T-Mobile and say that T-Mobile has had issues with their 3G network which has thrown negative light on the Nexus One.
Trefis believes that with Verizon and Vodafone offering the Nexus One, the smartphone could see sales of roughly 5 million in 2010, however greater coverage doesn’t guarantee better sales as the reception of the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus on Verizon has shown.
