Google Nexus one, in the end you leave the accounts to the Californian firm
In early March, the Goldman Sachs investment group told the Wall Street Journal that the Nexus one would sell less than one third of schedule. however your Google announced a few days the phone, far from causing loss, now brings them profit. Another good news for the finances of the Mountain View is that 60,000 Android models are activated every day.
Moreover, since the consultant J. Gold Associates say that the main objective of the Californian company is not to compete in sales with the likes of Apple iPhone and Motorola Droid. In fact, what is it that a large number of programmers test the terminals equipped with version 2.1 of its popular operating system.
indeed, the figures used in the beginning were nothing favorable to Google Nexus one one week after its release 20,000 units were distributed. however, the Apple iPhone 3G managed over a million and a half in the same period of time. For his part, also equipped with Motorola Android Droid, or Milestone as it is known in Europe, also exceeded with 250,000 models sold. In addition, a high percentage of U.S. mobile users reported problems accessing smart to 3G networks. Google and discarded Taiwanese manufacturer HTC, the responsibility fell on the operator T-Mobile. In short, it appeared the company had taken a small slip.
Anything contrary to recent reports suggest. Nexus One’s success is that thanks to him, Google receives numerous “feedback” (answers in Castilian) by developers who have tried it. being a service provider, is benefiting. At least, so says Jack Gold, founder of J. Gold Associates. On the other hand, Gold says Google’s intention was never to compete against other firms booming market itself as HTC, RIM and Apple. according to the analyst, “was that Google managed to dispose of a significant number of devices” to form a “great platform of reference” and thus “test and tune your operating system in real life.” he added that the computer giant gets in this way the chance “to improve its products and its strategy for a massive upcoming releases.”
Meanwhile, last April 15 Google went public with a profit of 6,770 million dollars (about 4.961 million euros) and net income of $ 1,960 million (1,436 million euros at current exchange rates) during the first quarter of 2010 . it seems very far from being in a critical situation despite the low sales of the Nexus one is clear that some data changes depending on the glass through which you look.
