Nexus 7 sales accelerate: 1 million units sold per month
Asus has just announced one of its most prosperous quarters, and its success has a lot to do with the strong sales of the Nexus 7 tablets. Up until now, we knew Google’s tablet is doing okay, but we had no numbers to put this into perspective. Now, Asus reveals that the Nexus 7 sells at around 1 million units a 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,” Asustek CFO David Chang said.

We don’t have the actual accumulated sales figure as Google is careful to keep it a secret. This probably means that it has sold far less than the mainstream option that is the iPad, but closing in on 1 million sales is a solid figure to report on and it seems to be getting good traction.

Earlier speculations pegged Nexus 7 sales for the whole of the third quarter at between 800,000 and 1 million, but with this new information it seems the actual sales clocked in higher.

As the Holiday quarter approaches, the Nexus 7 will fight against the iPad mini and the Amazon Kindle Fire HD. It has the advantage of sporting full and unrestricted Android unlike the Kindle Fire, and can boast with a price tag of $199 for the 16GB version. 

It definitely looks competitive, but it’s hard to say whether Google and Asus have enough of a sales representation to push sales to iPad-like levels.
