The Motorola Droid for Verizon Wireless is selling very, very well… there is no denying that. Exactly how well? That’s up for debate, but only a month ago there was speculation that 600,000+ Droids would be sold during the last 2 months of the year. Owners of those phones are downloading a HECK of a lot of applications: a new report by Flurry claims that on Christmas, Droid owners accounted for nearly 50% of all Android Market downloads:
Are you surprised? I’m not… last month we took a look at which Android Phones seem to be doing the most web browsing, and we saw the Droid was 2nd to the HTC Dream/G1. When you get a brand new Android Phone what is one of the first things you do? Check out and try out all the applications/games you can in Android Market. And what is the hottest new Android Phone? The Motorola Droid.
Still, it’s pretty interesting to see how the Droid is absolutely lighting up the market and nice to hear that Verizon hasn’t – at least last time I’ve checked – suffered any system downtime or slowdowns from the ridiculous data loads.
