Nexus 7 already the best selling tablet ever in the UK

Usually, electronics are more expensive in the UK, but Google has been selling the tablet for just £159 (~$255), which is pretty comparable to the $199 price tag here. For comparison's sake, the new iPad starts at $499 in the US, but starts at £399 (~$640) in the UK. Because of the price of the Nexus 7, there isn't really any competition in the UK, because neither Amazon nor Barnes & Noble sell their tablets in the region just yet. The Kindle Fire HD will be going on sale in Europe soon though.
No official stats are available, but Carphone Warehouse, one of the biggest mobile retailers in the region, has said that the Nexus 7 is now the best selling Android tablet ever in the UK. Of course, Graham Stapleton, chief commercial officer at Carphone Warehouse clear to tell the Telegraph that it was the best selling Android tablet, not the best selling tablet. So, without actual numbers, it's hard to say just how impressive this news is, because we can assume from the phrasing that the iPad is still out-selling the Nexus 7, and also costs significantly more.
Google Nexus 7 OS: Android 5.1 Lollipop, 5.0 Lollipop, 4.4, 4.3, 4.2.2, 4.2.1, 4.2, 4.1.2, 4.1.1, 4.1 View Full specs

I foresee a lawsuit for breach of patents involving Asus in the near future.

They can't spell arbor, ardor, color, favor, flavor, harbor, labor, neighbor, and savor correctly so why do they matter?

Such an American sentiment. Your version came before ours, but ours is still superior. And people wonder why we're hated in so many places around the world.

Don't worry about him. not all Americans are this ignorant on purpose. I know quite a few and they are the learned ones who understand how America was actually started by English folk who couldn't stand the Queen. Sheesh, you think that they actually took history lessons. At times I feel sorry when on the street you can stop a random individual and ask them to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and they wouldn't know it, worse yet can't even sing the National Anthem, but incredibly immigrants who become naturalized citizens are required to know both and can actually do it...how is that for patriotic an outsider loves your country enough to learn more about it than you. Wait how come the Kindle hasn't been sold in the U.K.? They waiting for something special to show up? Original Kindle is one heavy and unattractive brick, not to mention lacking the Play Store means you miss out on a lot of cool things that aren't in Amazon's store, oh well. Go Nexus?!?
