How amazing Nexus 7 is. I think Nexus 7 is not so popular in Malaysia. When I went to Lowyat Plaza, KL, it hard to find this gadget at gadgets floor. Mostly, all the shops put Samsung Galaxy Tab as a their display gadget. However, I managed to find Nexus 7 at ground floor and play with it.
For those unfamiliar with the Nexus 7, it comes with a 7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD, a Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A9, 1GB of RAM, a 4325-mAh battery, NFC and Android Jelly Bean. The Nexus 7 began shipping in July 2012 and was met with high demand from the start. The device is a 7-inch, Android Jelly Bean tablet with a 1280×800 pixel display and a quad-core processor.
Asus’s Chief Financial Officer, David Chang has revealed that its 7-inch tablet, which starts at $199 in the US, is approaching 1 million sales a month. David Chang has told the Wall Street Journal.
“At the beginning, it was, for instance, 500K units a month, then maybe 600, 700K. This latest month, it was close to one million,” Chang said. These figures signal an encouraging trend for Asus and Google, though they’re still far below iPad sales, which reached 14 million last quarter.
The sales are likely to continue as earlier in the week Google announced a 32GB and HSPA+ version of the Nexus 7 which users have been asking for since the initial launch, along with a new Nexus smartphone and a 10-inch tablet built by Samsung.
