Now, new estimates from Tech-thoughts.net based on touch panel shipments suggest Google could sell as many as 8 million tablets by the end of the year, making the Nexus 7 one of the most popular Android tablets to date. Google previously stated that it hoped to sell 3 million Nexus 7 tablets in 2012. Read the full story at Boy Genius Report.
