Xoom Gloom: Motorola Shipped Just 100,000 Tablets in Q3
Remember those early forecasts claiming Motorola Mobility would sell between three million and five million Xooms this year? Best forget them. Reporting third-quarter earnings Thursday afternoon, the company revealed that it had shipped — not sold — just 100,000 Xooms into the channel during the quarter. That’s significantly worse than the 440,000 units shipped in the June period, and even lousier considering Apple’s iPad sales of 11.1 million in its third quarter.
