3 Months After Launch, Nexus 7 is UK's Best Selling Android Tablet

Mobile retailer Carphone Warehouse says that the Nexus 7 is the UK's best-selling Android tablet of all time, outshining the Galaxy Tab, ASUS Transformer Prime and many others.

“It’s impressive that this product is our biggest selling Android tablet, and it will be really interesting to see if other manufacturers will follow suit with smaller tablets over the coming months to spice up the Christmas period,” Graham Stapleton, chief commercial officer at Carphone Warehouse, told The Telegraph.

The same retailer indicated that there was massive demand for smaller, cheaper tablets, which is good news for the likes of Amazon and Apple – both of whom are expected to release budget tablets in Europe in the coming month. The Kindle Fire HD isn't available yet in the UK or Europe.

By Google's own estimates, the Nexus 7 is expected to sell over 8 million units by year's end, making it the most successful Android tablet ever.

  • Not only is size important but the pure Google experience. The reviews of this Tab have been- simply great. With the new 32GB option just around the corner Google is ensuring longevity for this product

  • I'm sure the nexus 7 will sell many more even with competing companies releasing new 7 inch tablets the nexus 7 still comes out on top. There's a huge market for small tablets as it's shown. Put it in your pocket is not easily done with an ipad..

  • Well, I wouldn't say the demand is for smaller tablets... it's for cheaper tablets. Not every one can afford or wants top shelf products.
