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.

Not too bad for the Nexus 7, considering the only prominent advertising it got was Google's front page for a few days.


You're kidding right? The entire technology blogosphere was a hugely successful advertising platform for it. In my experience there were no negative reviews of it, and the gushing reviews drowned the bland ones out by far.

Pretty much everyone I know had heard about it from somewhere, and my circles include everything from fellow techs to complete Luddites and a broad selection in between. And don't forget the obvious connection to Android smartphones; most of the non techies I have talked to wanted to know if it was the new "Droid tablet" or a new Samsung Note-style phone.

/BTW I do agree with the rest of your post, just felt like commenting on that one thing. ;)
