Motorola Droid sells more than iPhone

By: David Min   232 views | 10 comments

Although Nexus One didn’t sell as well as anticipated, the Motorola Droid became a big hit, large enough to even outsell the iPhone during a 74 day period. A firm called Flurry crunched in some numbers to see just how many sold within a 74 day period. The Nexus One sold disappointingly low with only 135,000 sold while the iPhone sold 1 million during its first release. More importantly, the Motorola Droid outsold both the iPhone and Nexus One with 1.05 million, passing the iPhone. Although this is considering the iPhone sales back in 2007 compared to the 2009 Droid, Fluffy also states that it may due to people understanding new mobile technology with the Droid while the iPhone was a breakthrough to today’s mobile phone advancement. For the Nexus One, it may be said that it lacked the marketing and convenience since it could only be bought online while Verizon was reported to spend around $100 million in its marketing campaign. Verizon had an average of 89 million subscribers late in 09 for the Droid while back in 07 AT&T had roughly 63.7 million for its iPhone. Although these statistics have been for two separate phones in two different years, one can speculate if the Droids popularity would have been drastically decreased or increased if put up against the iPhone during its first release.
