Mobile Analytics company Flurry released an interesting sales chart that compares the iPhone 1G, Droid and Nexus One sales in the first 74 days.
The original iPhone reached 1 million after 74 days on the market. The Motorola Droid offered by Verizon Wireless has beaten that number by a bit last fall.
The Google Nexus One is very, very far behind with only 135,000 handsets sold.

The praised move by Google to sell the Nexus One direct with no contract is apparently not shaking up the U.S. phone market. The $500 price tag is too high to compete with a subsidized smartphone deals that require 2 year contracts. Additionally Google did not really invest much in marketing. The Droid was heavily promoted and the results are speaking for themselves.

The Droid and Nexus One sales numbers are estimated by Flurry and not official. Flurry claims that their tracking software has been downloaded to over 80% of all iPhone OS and Android devices.
