Google’s Nexus 7, which is manufacturer by Asus, is very much a premium tablet with an entry-level price tag. It boasts a quad-core processor, a high-resolution display, up to ten hours of battery life, and the latest Android operating system. Yet it only costs $199.
It’s no surprise, then, that the Nexus 7 is a huge seller. Asus revealed to The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday that it’s now selling nearly 1 million Nexus 7 units every single month.
“At the beginning, it was, for instance, 500K units a month, then maybe 600, 700K. This latest month, it was close to 1 million,” said Asustek Chief Financial Officer David Chang.
The Nexus 7 is still selling considerably less than Apple’s third-generation iPad, which sold 25 million units globally during the third quarter of 2012. However, it’s still a pretty impressive figure if you ask me. A lot of tablet manufacturers would be delighted to see 1 million units selling every month.
And Google’s tablet sales are only going to get better now that it’s offering the Nexus 10, which comes comes with a larger 10-inch display from $399.
