PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "At the beginning, it was, for instance, 500K units a month, then maybe 600, 700K. This latest month, it was close to 1 million," Asustek Chief Financial Officer David Chang told The Wall Street Journal. Very much deserved. You can pry my beloved Alexis (my Nexus 7's name, normally written in Hangul but OSNews can't render it) from my cold, dead hands. I don't think I've ever had a device that I liked more than this thing. Note this is sales, not shipped.

I didn't expected this

One thing that surprised me in this article was this:

That number still pales in comparison to Appleā€™s third-quarter sales of 14 million iPads. A total of 25 million tablets were sold globally in the third quarter

that means that 46% of tablet actually sold are NOT iPads.

I talk out of my a$$ but I think that the majority of these tablets are Android ones.

For me it shows a bit the same scenario as we saw at the beginning of Android phone sales...

This could become very interesting in 2013 :-)

As always, sorry for my english... Be indulgent as it's only my third language
