8 millions is not bad number and I guess that the most Apple could sell and not b-c of demand problems.

Interesting how many Nexus 7 were sold in Q4.

First off; Apple's use of twisted information by combining sales of all iPads on the launch of iPad Mini and iPad Standard Original V4 was a horrific admission that they didn't sell as many as they expected. Only mindless dolts and Wall Street Analysts (Anal... ists) believe consumers all fell for that.... as if 3 million was all iPad Mini. When they had no customers waiting in lines, besides Shills and iFanatical customer plants! :D

As for Nexus 7? .....suppliers made 4 Million the first quarter on sale and sold them all by end of of September. When a new order and expected sales for this last quarter (Dec Q4) could add as many as 5 Million.

So no matter what, because Google was smart enough to get a full quarter jump on Apple, expect Nexus 7 to have outsold iPad Mini for 2012! ^_*

Ok but how much was big and small comnbined? If small sold less due to shortage of supplies (just a cover up) then bigegr should have sold more unless the ipad market share has taken a beating overall :)

When are people going to wake up? This style of marketing your item as short on supply, to get more sales is a tactic as old as the hills and twice as iDusty! :D ......gyspy con artists (barkers) and Info-mercial iMarketing was not invented by Steve Jobs.

He only mastered the Snake In the Grass Art of increasing sales, using Customer Super Fan Dolts, Magical Hidden Lies w/Doublethink mis-information about competition and now iRevolutionary ploy of using shills..... in the crowd to kick off FAD buying frenzies for a "Hurry.... buy one now" before they're all out! hahaha.....

.....yeah as if Used Car/Horse/camel Salesmen, Drug Dealers, Pimps and Hoes haven't been using these tactics for ages!!! ;-P
