Google Nexus 7 shipments continue to increase month-on-month

Google Nexus 7 shipments continue to increase month-on-monthBefore I get down to brass tacks, I should probably mention that we’re crediting DigiTimes here, in case you want to tune out early.

Still with me? The Digital men are back with more stories, and this time they’re telling us that the Google Nexus 7 is expected to hit a whopping one million sales in December.

We’re told that the Google Nexus 7 was initially moving in monthly numbers of around 500,000-600,000, increasing to 800,000-900,000 in November.

With Christmas on the horizon (should probably start my shopping soon), volumes are expected to increase to an even million this month. Not too shabby.

Having said that, the original Amazon Kindle Fire was reportedly selling around a million units a week last Christmas.

Quanta, which puts together the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire, unsurprisingly refused to comment on volumes.

DigiTimes’ sources, “Taiwan-based supply chain makers”, reckon Christmas should see some pretty good figures for 7in tablets across the board. Well, the big-name ones, anyway, specifically the Google Nexus 7, Amazon Kindle Fire and iPad mini.

The iPad mini could be on track to sell 12 million units in it's first quarter, demand is strong and greater than Apple anticipated. They've had to double production from their original estimate of 6 million units.

I was gonna say: our local Argos have had Nexus 7 in stock since day 1 - right now you can walk in and pick a 16GB or 32 GB - dito Fire HD and the new Nook HD and HD+ (great screen, by the way)... No iPad Mini available until after Christmas.

Indeed, but look what's happening to sales of their larger tablet. In a word - cannibalization.
