Motorola Xoom: only 100,000 sold

Estimate suggests Moto lagging miles behind iPad 2

Numbers come from Deutsche Bank analysis of recent Android usage figures.

The Motorola Xoom has sold a paltry 100,000 units since its US launch at the end of February. That’s according to Deutsche Bank, which garnered the figures following close analysis of Google’s most recent Android usage stats.

Android developers’ figures suggested earlier this month that just 0.2 per cent of Android owners were using Honeycomb. Deutsche says this equates to a measly 100,000 people, with the Xoom currently the only device available that runs the tablet-centric version of Google’s OS.

Apple shifted 300,000 iPads on its first weekend last year. Official iPad 2 figures have not yet been released, but are expected to easily break the original slate’s record stats, with some suggesting it’s already well above a million sales.

The news shows just what a massive mountain Google’s tablets are going to have to climb in order to battle it out with the iPad at the top. Have you bought a Motorola Xoom? Let us know how it’s working out for you on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
