Nexus 7 monthly shipment to pass 1 million units in December
The Google Nexus 7 is one of the hottest tablets that have been released this year. Since it was introduced in late June, the quad-core slate has captured the interest of tech geeks and mainstream customers alike due to its awesome specs and low price point.
We learned a while back that Asus was shipping out close to 1 million units of the Nexus 7 per month. With the recent introduction of the Nexus 7 3G alongside the new 32GB variant, and buoyed by the holiday shopping season, DigiTimes reports that the monthly global sales are expected to break the million unit barrier in December.
According to the publication, the figures were taken from supply chain makers across Taiwan. Quanta Computer, the ODM partner of Asus in the region, said that shipment of the Nexus 4 for Q4 alone will reach 2-3 million units.
While these aren’t exactly Apple-like numbers yet, it’s comforting to know that a non-forked Android tablet can compete with the best of them in the highly competitive market. Let’s see what other surprises Google has inside its Android bag come May of next year, when Google I/O 2013 event will be held. A refreshed Nexus 7 anyone?
