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.

25-14 = 11 million Android tablets per quarter is around 3.5 million per month, maybe 4 at the end of the quarter.

My guess is that 1 million Nexus 7 are joined by 1 million Kindle Fire, 1 million other brand (Transformer, Nook, Galaxy Tab etc.) and 1 million no-name Tablets from China.

The news that Amazon reported a sales spike after the iPad Mini announcement[1] points to Amazon competing with Apple rather than only against other Android manufacturers. So I don't think the Kindle Fire put a major dent in Nexus 7 sales.
