ASUS CFO reveals that Nexus 7 sales are nearing 1 million units per monthAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Ever since the Nexus 7's debut earlier this year, ASUS and Google have stayed fairly quiet on how its 7-inch tablet had been selling. ASUS CFO David Chang recently broke the silence to the Wall Street Journal, though, revealing that sales of the Nexus 7 are fast approaching 1 million units per 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,” Chang said. A Google spokesperson only said that the search company has not released sales numbers for the Jelly Bean slate.
While Chang's statement doesn't reveal exact, month-by-month numbers, it does give us an idea of how well the Nexus 7 has been doing since its launch. Google earlier this week introduced new 32GB and 3G versions of the Nexus 7 and also cut the price of the 16GB model, which ought to help interest in the device grow. Of course, Google also announced the new Nexus 10 with a 2560x1600 display, so some folks that may have previously purchased the Nexus 7 may now opt for the larger Nexus 10 instead. Which of the two Nexus tablets do you think you'd rather have?
