Flurry: Droid Does Deliver

Flurry Following our coverage on the release of the Motorola Droid, Flurry has committed to some deeper research and found out that Droid isn’t doing that bad when you look at the first week sales.

They compared the Droid with two other devices. One being the MyTouch (Windows Mobile) and the other being the iPhone 3Gs. The big loser of the three is the MyTouch with 60K devices sold during the first week of availability. Second comes the Droid at 250K units. The big winner however is the iPhone 3Gs at 1600K units.


When you take a closer look however, you see that the iPhone 3Gs was launched in 8 markets whereas the Droid and myTouch where launched in just one. This means the Motorola Droid actually outsold the iPhone 3Gs from a cold start (there where already 25 Million iPhones in circulation at the introduction of the 3Gs). According to Flurry, Verizon did invest about $100 per unit sold in advertising.
