Did you ever doubt that the Google Nexus 7 would be successful? Apparently, the cheaper 7-inch Android tablet is selling like hotcakes. The search giant has shifted as much as 1 million units of the Nexus 7 just in the third quarter of 2012.
Although the Nexus 7 is dirt cheap, it does sport a rather impressive spec sheet. This is why the tablet has proven to be popular device favoured by shoppers. Apparently, impressive specs coupled with an affordable price tag are making the tablet fly off shelves.
Google shifting as much as 1 million units of the Google Nexus 7 comes from a Piper Jaffray analyst, Gene Munster, reported by the Android Community. Munster believes that the search giant has sold between 800,000 and 1 million units if the Nexus device between the months of July and September of this year.
Munster’s sales estimates were based on the search giant’s revenue figures. Google is said to have gained $666 million (approximately £415 million) worth of revenues for 2012, compared to $385 million (approximately £240 million) in 2011. This sudden surge in revenues is believed to be the result of Google selling the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean)-powered Google Nexus 7.
Google is also rumoured to launch as much as five Nexus tablets and smartphones, including a 10-inch Nexus tablet and the LG Nexus 4, a rumoured smartphone said to be based on the LG Optimus G but will look like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
