The Google Nexus One, the much-hyped smartphone that has recently been plagued by user complaints, sold only about 20,000 units in its first week of sales, according to analytics firm Flurry. In comparison, theMotorola Droid on Verizon Wireless--the other Android phone that had been buzzed about in November--sold 250,000 in its first week. The T-Mobile myTouch 3G, an earlier Android device, sold 60,000 units in its first week.
The most likely reason the Google Nexus One isn't selling well has to do with the way in which it is being sold. The much-talked about model of selling phones--both unlocked and on contract from T-Mobile--directly from the Google online store has led to poor customer support and confusion about how to get service from T-Mobile. User complaints and the unflattering word-of-mouth could cause the phone's sales to slow even further.
