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.

But lets revisit this after the iPad Mini has had an affect on the market. I don't think this will last long.

But... but... I thought nobody wanted a 7-inch tablet, that they were going to be DOA, yadda yadda yadda?!? Oh, I forgot: the iPad mini is 7.87-inch, an entirely different beast!


RT.

PS: Sorry, I couldn't resist. Still, anyone insisting on the 0.87-inch difference must have some nerve. What about the good old "Only fools and dead men don't change their minds"?

Just like nobody wanted a netbook, Apple wasn't going to make a compromised laptop, then we get the MacBook Air.

And yes, I know the MBA is more of an ultraportable than a netbook in dimensions and speed, but in (lack of) expandability it lines up better with the latter. It's still a compromised design.

And yet I still drool over it...
