Google’s flagship Android tablet computer, the Nexus 7, reportedly sold 4.6 million units last year — solidifying Android’s position in the tablet PC space.
Reportedly revealed by the manufacturer of the 7-inch device, ASUS, mobile industry analyst Benedict Evans analyzed the numbers and discovered that the Android Jelly Bean tablet computer, launched back in July 2012, has attracted more than 4.5 million to 4.6 million buyers worldwide including the United States where Google offers the device via its online retail store — the Google Play Store.
Compared to Apple’s iPad sales number, sales of the Nexus 7 is still smaller, but it is safe to say that the search engine giant is on track to reach the full potential of Android’s tablet computer market. Apparently, Android still lacks top-end and popular tablet computer applications, but with a bigger tablet PC market than before, developers might flock to Android and manufacture more applications.
The Google Nexus 7 is powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 processor, 1GB RAM and available with 16 or 32GB of on-board flash storage. The device features a 7-inch IPS display with 200+ pixels per inch, a front-facing camera for video chat, and the latest version of Android with faster updates coming straight from Google’s servers.
