Sounding The Death Knell For The Nexus One Is Probably Just A Little Premature

The Google Nexus One handset has “bombed” after selling just 20,000 handsets in its first week.

Eh? Selling 20,000 devices in a week with no brick-and-mortar outlets (and therefore no chance to test the device before purchase), relatively minimal marketing, from a new seller using a pretty unique (for the US, anyway) sales model is a “bomb”? And, oh, yeah, this isn’t a hard, reported number, it’s an estimate based on the number of apps Nexus One users have downloaded.

If Google has indeed shifted 20,000 devices in a week, that sounds like a decent triumph to me, and bodes well for when google.com/phone is selling more than one device on one operator.
