LOL, but frankly 5m is too few.
Nexus 7 can and should do better. 10m would be acceptable figure.

Yea that number is low, I expected them to at least do 10mil. They need to step it up.

I know for a fact this is a popular tablet, and for good reason too. My brother has one and it's fantastic. However, I think that 5 billion shipments might be just a touch on the side of overestimation.

Here is a thought; hire an intern to proof read! Love the site but the amount of errors, factual or grammatical, make it seem amateurish... just my 2 cents.

5 billion is like 75% of the population...I don't think 5 billion is realistic considering poor and third world countries that have a good amount of the population.

Its all about the marketing, when will android step it up. Apple is still king of marketing.

5 millions is just about 1 month ipad sales

5 million is not a good number for end of year sales, they need to be pushing 5 mil a month.
