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.

Runs Ubuntu

I wonder if the fact that you can run native Ubuntu on these things has led to increased sales.

I know a lot of people want to run native linux on their tablets. This seems to be the first brand name one where it's painless to do and possible?
