It appears that the Nexus 7 2013 shipments and orders will dim down faster than the ones of its predecessor, as Taiwanese sources are saying that orders for the product for Q4 may shrink sequentially.


Component makers are the ones with the information and the reason is lower than expected sales during the third quarter. The release of a new iPad Mini and the new Kindle Fire tablets would also influence the sales of the new Nexus 7. Sources are saying that the competition is tough because all tablet makers get their components from pretty much the same companies.

This means that some models will have to be sacrificed to let others live. By the way, the Nexus 7 2013 has been off to a rough start, plagued by multitouch screen issues and now the GPS capabilities have come under fire. Will the new Nexus 7 still matter before the year is out?
