Nexus 7 is Japan’s favorite tablet, dethrones iPad Mini from the top spot

This holiday season brought a smile on the face of Google Inc. The internet giant’s tablet, the Nexus 7 outsold Apple’s much talked about iPad Mini.


As per market stats from BCN found that in the 2400 retail stores surveyed, the Nexus sales were at a booming 44.4 percent while the iPad mini followed closely at 40.1 percent. The miniscule remainder was tablets of other companies.

Even in a tiny market like Japan, which sold nearly 3.6 million tablets in the year 2012, Google’s Nexus 7 and Apple’s iPad mini dominated the tablet market.
