    A new analytical study suggests that the Google Nexus 7 could sell as many as 8 Million units this year. This is far higher than Google's internal estimate of just 3 Million units. Based upon a study by Gartner, Google already sold between 1 Million and 1.5 Million Nexus 7 tablets since its debut five weeks ago. Additionally, June and July shipments of Nexus 7 touch panels from TPK Holding and Wintek supposedly reached 2.4 Million, and another 6 Million are expected to be shipped in the third quarter.

    Based upon these figures, and some forward-thinking projections, Sameer Sing, founder of Tech-Thoughts, believes the Nexus 7 will likely hit a 6-8 Million figure. One other factor is that Amazon's Kindle Fire sold 5 Million units since its debut, so Google should be able to at least match that. Here's a quote with a conclusion based upon this extrapolation,

    Mr. Sing's detailed estimate is impressive and we look forward to seeing if his projections hold true.

    I bought one.. and have 2 more 16's coming. . They're nice. One for my sons schooling, one for me, one for the wife.

    She doesn't get to touch mine... lmao

    It'd be nice if they'd make an otterbox defender for it though... to me anyhow.

    Growth % looks good but it doesnt factor in when the Ipad Mini drops which could possibly stagger sales a bit.
    I had mine since release and did not have any of the reported issues and i cant put this thing down.
    Excellent device.
