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.

An Article on WSJ?!!!

First off, I find the title very misleading, which should be "Nexus 7 sales nearly hit one million *last* month" IMO.

Then, in the article, comparing all iPads' sales to Nexus 7's? Are they serious?

What are you talking about? It is bizarre to me that you managed to take offense at that article. It is very clear about all the things you say it is being misleading about and the comparison to ipad sales says nexus 7 sales "pale in comparison". What would make you happy "really really pale in comparison"?? Would 3 "really"s do it? 4? Do we need other adjectives like "extremely"?

To clear things up, I'm neither Google's nor Apple's fanboy. And I'm disappointed by the quality. Yes, I know it's a blog post, but still... Hey! It's the WSJ!

Having that said, comparing all iPads' sales to Nexus 7's is just not appropriate IMO. It's like comparing all Windows laptops' sales to the Macbook Air's. Well, you can do so, but it says nothing meaningful.

"comparing all iPads' sales to Nexus 7's? Are they serious?"

As serious as articles comparing sales of all Android smartphones to iPhone sales.

Tell me if my common sense is skewed, but I think it would be more appropriate to compare the sales like

iPad 4 vs Nexus 7, OR
iPad Mini vs Nexus 7
