Google Nexus One sales 80x lower than iPhone?


First week apparently very disappointing.Google's first phone, the Nexus One, has apparently sold only 20,000 units in its first week on sale.

The data comes from Flurry, the app analytics firm, which states that this number compares with 250,000 of the Motorola Droid (Milestone over in the UK) and 1.6 million iPhone 3GS in their respective first weeks on sale.

However, it's worth noting that a caveat is added due to Google's new method of distribution, selling direct to the consumer and no in-store contracts being offered by the network providers.

New model

This means there's been a lot less in the way of advertising and hype the way other top level phones are promoted prior to going on sale, as well as less chance of customers becoming aware of the phone as they walk into a shop.

"As a product, the Nexus One boasts the most dvanced Android OS to date as well as unique features, such as Google Voice and Google Maps," said Flurry according to Mobile-Entz.biz.

"However, potentially due to the heightened "promise" created by early buzz, the handset has ultimately fallen short on sales expectations."

New iPhone 4G and Apple Tablet: Will you buy both?


We are only halfway through the first month of 2010 and already the rumors of two new devices from Apple are dominating the news. Apple will hold an event at the end of this month, it is then where recent reports suggest that they will announce their new tablet PC and a new iPhone 4G.

We would assume that the new iPhone for 2010 would be released in June or July, as previous models have in the past, but the onslaught of Google Android handsets has changed all that. Apple knows that the recent launch of the Google Nexus One phone has made them rethink things a little, and feel the need to launch out of cycle.

However, Apple fans now have a huge decision to make, do they spend their hard earned money on the new Tablet device, or would they rather get their handsets on the fourth version of the iPhone?

Looking back at previous news, it looks as though the Apple Tablet PC will be launched in March, and there could be two versions, one with an LCD screen and the other with an OLED screen. According to recent reports, Apple has been buying up all the 10-inch OLED and LCD screens.
