Published reports are indicating that Google was surprised (probably pleasantly so) over increased demand for the Nexus 7 tablet. So much so, that they have ordered an additional 2.5 million devices from manufacturer Asus to keep up with sales before the end of 2012. This comes on top of the estimated 2.5 million tablets already sold so far. This comes as no surprise to me…I love everything about this tablet. You can read my review of the Nexus 7 to see my thoughts on this device.
While these numbers don’t compare to the number of iPads sold each day, week, or month, demand for the Nexus 7 is growing – indicating a definite need in the market for a 7 inch tablet. Google and Asus have a home run on their hands with this one.
