Nexus 7Google has sold an estimated 4.6m Nexus 7 tablets, leaving it some way short of the 10m iPad mini sales, according to analyst Benedict Evans.

Evans estimates that Google sold 2.2m Nexus 7 tablet devices in Q2 / Q3 212 and 2.4m at most in Q4, based on information from the device’s manufacturer Asus, which has sold around 4.8m devices (including other products) since the Nexus 7 went on sale.

By contrast, Evans estimates that Apple has sold around 10m iPad minis, despite the device only going on sale at the beginning of November.
