October 19, 2012, 12:10 P.M.m Friday, New York local time — Google may have sold 1 million Nexus 7 tablets in Q3. The 7-inch Android Jelly Bean tablet is the most successful Android tablet of 2012?
Google is on the verge of claiming the most successful Android tablet PC seller of 2012. As reported by multiple tech sites, one analyst is claiming that the Nexus 7 has attracted at least a million customers in Q3. For starters, the Nexus 7 tablet was launched in United States and Australia last July 13, and more countries followed in July, August and September.
According to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster in a research note, “Google likely sold 800k-1m Nexus 7s in Q3.” Profit is not the main success of the near million Nexus 7, apparently. The main goal of the Nexus 7 is to add more tablet PC market share because more Nexus 7 owners will allow Android to attract tablet PC app developers.
Another success of the Nexus 7 tablet that is worth mentioning is Apple’s iPad Mini. According to reports, the iPad Mini will join the market this quarter, and the device is Apple’s answer to the successful Google Android tablet with 7-inch touchscreen display. Analysts believe that Apple’s iPad Mini is a “barrier” against the growing smaller tablet PC market, but Apple “copying” Google in the tablet PC space is just one of the ways to determine the success of the product.
The Nexus 7 is powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM and features a large 7-inch pixels-rich touchscreen display. Unlike the iPad, the Nexus 7 features one camera only, an HD front-facing camera that accommodates video chat applications and other apps that offer non-chat services like Instagram.
