We have some new numbers this morning that paint a picture of the Android tablet space. Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Asustek CFO David Chang revealed sales numbers for the 7-inch Nexus 7 tablet that is sold directly from Google Play. “At the beginning, it was, for instance, 500K units a month, then maybe 600, 700K. This latest month, it was close to 1 million,” he told WSJ.  In comparison, Apple sold 14 million iPads last quarter.

However 1 million sales per month certainly isn’t terrible. Apple also enteres the smaller tablet game this week with the introduction of its 7.9-inch iPad mini priced at $329. The recently revealed LG Nexus 4 and Samsung Nexus 10 should also help juice sales into the Nexus lineup.
