    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.

    Through applications using Flurry for analytics reporting, Flurry can detect and count unique devices in the market such as Google Nexus One and Motorola Droids. Because applications embedded with Flurry have been downloaded to over 80% of all iPhone OS and Android devices, Flurry is able to make reliable estimates about total handset sales.

    This is all great but where is 2.1?

    I am happy to see that the Droid is doing well but I'll get excited when I get that update for 2.1

    An Apple a day can't keep Droid away.:icon_eek:
    Called to order mine and the rep told me to wait till after April 1 and they should come with 2.1 installed. We will have to see if it is true.

    I think its awesome that droid outsold the iphone.

    I am curious as to why its based on 74 days though. Whats the significance of '74'?

    I think you will be disappointed with it. I am using 2.1 now and the only major differences are the live wallpaper and the home panel where you can extend to 5, 7 or 9.

    2.1 does have a significant boost in speed and performance, as well as stability.

    In all fairness, I think the success of the Droid is due, in large part, to the success of (and frustrations with) the iPhone. Additionally, is this comparison using the 1st gen iPhone? If so, I'm not sure it's an apples-to-apples comparison.

    Anyway, I love my droid and I hope Android continues to increase in popularity.

    That is the benchmark to 1 million units set by the iphone which all other smartphones are measured. It took the iphone 74 days to sell 1 million units.

    I'm going from a BB curve to a Droid. I will not be disappointed. The curve has already done that for the past two years. If it isn't fast enough it can be fixed. You can't fix a first gen curve.
