Digital News Report – With all of the promotion given the Nexus One, you would think sales would be brisk. But that may not be the case after only 20,000 units in its first week. Compare that to the Motorola Droid which sold 250,000 in its first week back in November.
There have been complaints, according to Flurry, an analytics firm based in San Francisco. There has been a problem with customer support because of the way the phone has been sold.
This is not good for the first smart phone under the Google Brand. The company has been touting it on their search home page since its release. The fact that they released the phone one day after the holiday selling season ended may not have helped either.
“Google chose to market and sell the device to consumers directly through its own website,” the report stated. “T-Mobile, Google’s carrier partner for Nexus One, did not provide the same carrier co-marketing support as it did for the myTouch 3G launch.”
