With the threat of the iPad Mini looming over Google’s Android empire, it’s time to learn some figures from the search engine giant. In the last 24 hours big companies like Nokia or Google made public their revenues for Q3 and now analysts point towards the company, saying that they may have sold 800k to 1 million Nexus 7 tablets in Q3.
Google’s Q3 metrics included smaller cost per click figures, Motorola Mobility losses plus some “other income”, a revenue of $666 million, up from $385 million in Q3 2011. This is where experts come in and speculate that the “other revenue” is in fact the one generated by Nexus 7. This means that they sold between 800,000 and 1 million units of the 7 inch tablet made by ASUS and packed with Jelly Bean preinstalled.
We expect the product to continue to sell well, especially with a supposed 3G and 32 GB version coming and also there’s a rumor about a $99 Nexus 7. Now with new Nexus phone supposed to come at the end of the month, we expect Q4 to get an explosive growth over the previous 3 month time frame.
