Google can ship only 3.5 million units of its new Nexus 7 tablets by the end of this year. The latest version of Google's Android tablet is just launched few days before at the end of July. Full 5 months are reaming in this year. But the estimated amount to be sold till end of 2013 is very small. Just 3.5M units are expected to be sold. The first-generation Nexus 7 shipments just reach 6M units till now after a year of its July 2012 launch.

What will be the reason behind this sale failure? Actually new Nexus 7 has to face tough competition with other 7-inch tablets and it is also not going to be launched in world's biggest tech market in China. These are the two big reasons that will drop sales of Nexus 7 2.

Google cannot launch any of its devices in China since 2010. The tech giant had refused to comply with the China government's Internet policies 3 years ago. Since then, Google products are banned in China. Even the ASUS brand tag can not convince China government to allow the launch of second-generation Nexus 7 in the country, according to Digitimes sources. But Asustek own entry-level 7-inch MeMO Pad HD 7 tablet is one of the best selling devices in China available to purchase at CNY299 for the 16GB model.

The Chinese customers that will buy new Nexus 7 from abroad have to pay after-sales service charges to Asustek China. New Nexus 7 tablet will hit Taiwan market at any time in current month of September.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
