As the title says, how many? I heard Nexus S sold way more than Nexus S. Is that True? Is there an approximate number of how many sales?

You're asking if the Nexus S sold way more than the Nexus S?

nobody really knows. but a few weeks ago, the OS version numbers were released, and a few sites extrapolated based on those numbers. since at that time, onle one phone, the nexus s, was on gingerbread, and the number was 0.3% of android phones were on gingerbread based on the numbers.

so from that, knowing that 300k phones are sold each day, and the nexus s has been out for 1.5 months, only about 40k nexus s phones were purchased.

this is highly subjective, but you get the idea.

ok so then you are saying that other phones besides the nexus s could potentially appear as running 2.3. so then that "calculated" number would be the theoretical maximum, and likely will be lower since other phones would show up as 2.3. i think it at least gives a rough estimate of the number of nexus s phones in the wild.

it certainly shows that the number of nexus s phones is closer to 30k and not 1 million. just a ballpark figure.
