Over 80,000 Nexus One units sold in January

Over 80,000 Nexus One units sold in January
The latest Android phone to take the platform’s spotlight took a slightly different approach when it comes to the general operating model on selling a phone. Google’s very own flagship handset, the Nexus One, may seem a bit modest when Google reported selling 80,000 units sold in January – that may not be the most impressive numbers for a highly prized phone, but there is an undercover blockbuster lurking behind those figures. Motorola or Apple may not look at those numbers as being considered imposing right now, but they soon may start to raise concern when sales for the handset have been steady and decently strong. Since its release, Google sold 20,000 Nexus One Android phones during its first week and have been pumping out approximately the same amount per week so far. The most impressive figures will come as Google anticipates the launch of the handset on Verizon; which of course has the largest base of customers out of all the domestic wireless carrier. Put in the rumors about a 3G enabled version for AT&T – you’ve got yourself a recipe for some devastating numbers down the road. As Google learns from its mistakes during the whole process of launching their first handset, we know their support for the handset will continue to grow and improve – making the experience for consumers a bit more tolerable to swallow.
