The Motorola Xoom defintely won’t be the actual tablet to beat the ipad like the market leader any time in the near future, based on a sales estimate from Deutsche Bank.
Deutsche has projected that around 100,000 Xoom tablets have been sold since the device’s Feb. 24 launch, based on a Dow Jones statement.
Officials from Motorola were not available for comment on the Deutsche estimate on Xoom revenue. The smartphone and tablet maker has yet to release their own official sales figures on the Xoom.
On Day One for the first-generation Ipad, about 300,000 devices had been sold and ever since then, a lot more than 16 million have been purchased by customers.
The actual Xoom comes with higher entry-level prices versus the iPad, which can be bought in a 16GB Wi-Fi-only model for $499. The Xoom was only availble in a Wi-Fi and 3G variation promoting at frequently $799.99 for the device free of plan, and $599.99 with a two-year data plan via Verizon until Motorola released the Wi-Fi-only product for $599.99 on March 27.
