Google Nexus 7 Could Reach 8 Million Sales This Year

Launched a few months ago, it was hit or miss as to whether Google’s Nexus 7 tablet would do well. Having to compete with both Samsung & HTC in the Android tablet market could have theoretically blunted sales of  yet another Android tablet, but not in this case.

Google’s 7-inch, Nexus 7 tablet, has been a resounding success. Receiving great reviews from almost every tech website that reviewed it, Google have clearly out done themselves, and it would appear that the consumer market feels the same.

Estimates are currently putting the Nexus 7 at selling around 8 million units by the end of 2012. The estimates are based on touch panel shipments, so are likely to be slightly out, but still, even roughly 8 million units is a lot. Considering Google were aiming for approximately 3 million units sold, they must be dizzy with delight!

At just £159 or £199 depending on the hard drive size, the Nexus 7 is a snip against all other tablets and the build quality courtesy of ASUS is very polished and doesn’t at all feel cheap.

The only question, how can Google beat it?

  1. It will be interesting to see what they do next, will they follow the Samsung strategy and release a half dozen different models in all shapes and sizes?

    Or will they be more Apple like and put out a second generation Nexus 7 and continue to evolve and improve the single brand. Add an SD drive, HDMI and 3G and I’d buy a second one.

    1. My thoughts exactly. Personally I think Google will wait until year and release an updated model. More memory, probably HDMI, no so sure about 3G though. Would certainly be nice!

      It’s a lot Google Nexus phones, they are sort of, blessed. They get every update well in advance, and seem to have more updates to test bed new features. It’s a lovely tablet though, and at that price, good for Google!
