Google Nexus One sells 135,000

The success of the Nexus One is still hanging in the balance, as new figures suggest that in its first 74 days on sale it has sold just 135,000 units since launch.

Analyst firm Flurry came up with the figures which show that the first mobile phone bearing Google's branding is not the must-have gadget that many had assumed it would be.

Flurry's Peter Farago said: "As successful and talented as Google is online with paid search and other kinds of related businesses, the hardware business is very different."

Most experts are in agreement about the reasons behind the slow sales of the Nexus One, with the lack of a US network partner being cited as a significant factor.

The Android operating system has driven success for other manufacturers launching new smartphones, with Flurry estimating that the Motorola Milestone sold over one million units worldwide within 74 days.
