Droid Sales Outpace iPhones

The numbers are out and 1.05 million Droids have been sold in the first 74 days since launch compared to 1 million iPhone.

A new report out today from analytics firm Flurry indicates that the Motorola Droid has outsold the Apple iPhone in the first 74 days of sales. Verizon and Motorola did everything right with the Droid. The launch was set just before the busy holiday season, the marketing was outstanding, Verizon customers where hungry for a new powerful smart phone, and the price tag was spot on. As expected Google’s Nexus One is trailing far behind with nearly 135,000 units sold.

Motorola Droid Review

On day four with my Motorola Droid I am for the most part very satisfied. Any shortcomings that I have found with the phone have usually been solved by having a co-worker point me to an app or widget in the ever-growing Android Marketplace.

The only thing I have yet to to discover is a better way to integrate with my company’s Microsoft Exchange Server. I am pretty disappointed with the built-in support. It took more than a few tries to get my calendar to sych with the “Corporate Calendar” app. I am not able to accept meeting invitations. One of my biggest complaints is that I cannot move emails to a folder from my phone which means that if I read it on my phone I have to wait until I am at my desk to process it with my Outlook client. This is very in efficient for GTD or Inbox Zero practitioners.

I have yet to try one of the other Marketplace solutions for Exhange integration so if you have recommendations please drop me a comment.
