    The D2 garners a measly 0% of Chitika traffic while the original DROID still manages to snag 29% of the recorded traffic, which incidentally is more than all the other handsets combined.

    Full article

    It has been two weeks since the DROID 2 became available and now is a good time to take a peek at the real-time traffic stats provided by Chitika’s DROID 2 tracker. DROID fans prepare yourself as the information from the online ad network paints a less than pretty picture of initial DROID 2 sales.

    There are an estimated 11K DROID 2 handsets in the wild browsing Chitika’s ad network, a rather low number for a DROID-branded handset in its 14th day of sale. Traffic hits from the D2 tally up to a mediocre 102,500, a figure which pales in comparison to the 10 million recorded hits of the original DROID. The D2 garners a measly 0% of Chitika traffic while the original DROID still manages to snag 29% of the recorded traffic, which incidentally is more than all the other handsets combined.

    The DROID 2 also lags behind the DROID X. The DX launched four weeks before the D2 and now boasts of 1.5 million hits and 4% of traffic. A modest jump for a handset in its sixth week of sales. Even the T-Mobile G1 (1.7 million hits) beats out the D2 and slightly edges the DX, a surprising stat as you would expect that the early adopters who bought the world’s first Android handset would have moved on.

    Further supporting these less-than-stellar ad statistics from Chitika is the observation that the supply of the DROID 2 remains bountiful. Unlike the DX, the D2 is still available online from Verizon Wireless and most stores have standing stock. The D2 was also not greeted with lines of enthusiastic customers and does not have the headline-grabbing appeal that the DX has managed to garner.

    While you digest this traffic data and sales speculation, keep in mind that it is compiled from one online ad network, Chitika, and is not the exact, carrier-provided tally of sales. Until Motorola or Verizon releases the actual sales figures, we can only speculate and opine on the public enthusiasm for the D2. You can share in this speculation by providing your opinions in the comments.

    I bet if the D2 didn't have the locked bootloader the sales would be through the roof from D1 owners who like to run custom roms.

    i bet if they would provide better stock and not "allocations" for the D2 to indirect dealers they would sell more as well.. its bull**** motorola/verizon and their "allocation/Low Stock" is killing the sales of the D2 and the DX

    im not surprised..i havent seen one D2 commercial yet. People probably think its the original DROID and so they think its old and out of date. The X and the Inc on the other hand have had much more exposure and people are going for those instead of the D2.

    I don't care what the numbers say, give me a D2 over a DX or any other phone in a heartbeat. Love the keyboard! I'm still stuck with my D1 though. (happily, until the bootloader is beaten)

    I held a D2 the other week. It felt like cheap plastic compared to my D1.
    a little obsessive...
