Android phones which are for the most part the G1 from T-Mobile have sold a million units in 71 days which is 3 days faster than the 74 days needed for the iPhone.
Alexander Muse, of Big In Japan (creator of ShopSavvy), has compiled the G1 sales statistics for his keynote presentation at an Android Developer Camp in Amsterdam.
This is the first Android DevCamp in Amsterdam and is to be held on Thursday January 8th by organizer Peter Robinett – previous Android developer meetups occurred in Dallas Texas and Bangalore India.
Alexander has posted some interesting facts that counter the common misconception that Android is faltering in relation to perceived iPhone domination.
- The G1 has outsold the iPhone within approximately 70 days of their respective launches.
- The G1 has a 3 to 1 penetration rate over iPhone within their respective mobile providers (T-Mobile & AT&T)
- 4% of the 25 million T-Mobile customers has a G1 compared to 1.5% of the 65.7 million AT&T customers having an iPhone
- The 100 million European T-Mobile users will be offered the G1 for FREE
Do you think the percentage number of Europeans getting a FREE G1 may be a bit higher than 4%?
Now attach that percentage to 100 million plus!
