It is being reported that Nexus 7 tablet sales are nearing the 1 million per month milestone. The details are coming by way of a recent WSJ report which notes that;

“Sales of Google Inc. Nexus 7, made by Taiwan’s Asustek Computer Inc. are closing in on 1 million units a month, the Taiwanese maker revealed.”

Further details coming from Asus note that the Nexus 7 sales quickly climbed from 500,000 per month to, 600k, then 700k and the 1 million mark was for this previous month. In other words, it is sounding like Asus has seen 1 million in sales for one month at this time.

Of course, reaching that for one month or several months — that is still a fairly impressive figure. It should be interesting to see what happens moving forward though. After all, we have seen another (almost) 7-inch tablet announced — the iPad mini. Plus, Google has shaken things up by introducing the Nexus 10 and dropping the 8GB model of the Nexus 7 in favor of a 16GB and a 32GB model. And in our opinion, the new storage options (which kept the old pricing) make the Nexus 7 that much more appealing.

  1. “Closing in on one million”. Let’s hope they don’t mean “closing in” in the same way that Mitt Romney says Iran is one year closer to a nuclear bomb (i.e. it’s now 499 years away, whereas last year it was 500).
