Predictable as it may seem, the iPad 2 is more popular than the Motorola Xoom, a fact also shown by the huge difference between the sales of the two products. The Deutsche Bank is claiming in a recent report that Moto only sold 100,000 units of the Honeycomb tablet. The way they found that out? Well, the number of Android 3.0 users was available and since this is the only tablet with this OS… it’s pretty logical.
Moto calls this a good start and estimates an increase to 150,000 units in the second quarter, as the Xoom reaches more countries. The same quarter will also include the release of several other Honeycomb models, like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and LG Optimus Pad, with all its 3D goodness.
Meanwhile, the iPad 2 sales are in the area of millions, with DigiTimes reporting around 2.4 to 2.6 million units, according to touch panel supply chain sources. Doing simple Math, this places the iPad 2 at 25 to 1 in comparison with the Xoom sales. Could the $800 price of the Moto piece be the one to blame?
