Google Nexus 7 sells 3 million

Asus has confirmed that there have been almost three million Google Nexus 7 tablets sold since its release.

Speaking to The Wall Street Journal recently, Asus chief financial officer David Chang revealed that the Google Nexus 7 tablet – which his company manufactures – has been selling in ever-increasing numbers since its July launch.

“At the beginning, it was, for instance, 500K units a month, then maybe 600, 700K. This latest month, it was close to 1 million,” said Chang.

Add those figures up and you get a rough idea of how many Google Nexus 7 devices have sold so far in the three months or so it’s been on sale – 2.8 million.

Google itself has been typically coy when it comes to sales figures for its highly regarded 7-inch tablet, so these figures are very interesting. Stacked up against its chief rival in the affordable tablet market, Amazon, the Google Nexus 7 appears to be performing well – on the surface at least.

It’s been estimated that the Amazon Kindle Fire sold around six million units over the nine months following its November 2011 launch. Of course, it’s only been available in the US up to now, with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD global launch imminent.

One other reason Google may not have wanted to share sales figures for the Google Nexus 7 is because they would appear to pale into insignificance when compared to the Apple iPad.

Apple reported sales of 14 million iPad tablets in the last quarter. Those figures are only likely to swell with the launch of the iPad mini – a smaller, cheaper iPad that occupies similar territory to the Google Nexus 7, as well as the revamped iPad 4.

So, good work Google and Asus – but your work in selling the Google Nexus 7 to the public has only just begun.
