It looks as though ASUS are on a roll with their Nexus 7 tablet, where yesterday we reported about their strong Q3 earnings but we didn't know about their Nexus 7 numbers. After a bit more digging, I've found those numbers and they're definitely strong. The Wall Street Journal report from ASUS' third-quarter earnings conference, that Asustek Chief Financial Officer, David Chang told the WSJ:




At the beginning, it was, for instance, 500K units a month, then maybe 600, 700K. This latest month, it was close to 1 million.


Estimates over the last few months having been hovering at the 800,000 to 1 million mark, based on an analysis of Google's revenue figures. With ASUS' comments, the number seems to be higher. ASUS, along with Google, still have a long road ahead of them if they want to reach those dizzying heights of Apple's iPad sales, which reached 14 million in the quarter just gone.


I think we're only seeing the beginning of the Nexus journey from Google, and hopefully the end of carrier and phone maker UI crap on flagship smart devices, thankfully.
