Motorola Xoom ships just 100,000 units during Q3

Motorola has revealed it is leading Android tablet the Motorola Xoom shipped just 100,000 units during the third financial quarter of 2011, less than the number of iPads sold a day by Apple

Motorola has officially outed its third quarter earnings revealing that it shipped just 100,000 Motorola Xoom tablets during the three month period, significantly less than the 11 million iPads sold by Apple during the same period.

With just 100,000 Xooms shipped and significantly less sold during the past three months, Motorola’s latest quarterly earnings reports highlights how hard Android flavoured tablets are finding it to break the dominant stride Apple has with its now iconic iPad 2.

Revealing the poor figures in an official statement a Motorola spokesperson said: “The company shipped a total of 11.6 million mobile devices, including 4.8 million smartphones and approximately 100,000 Motorola XOOM tablets.”

Motorola Xoom Specs

Officially unveiled at CES 2011 earlier this year the Xoom has the first tablet to come running Google’s tablet centric Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system and quickly stood out as the closest competitor to the iPad through its impressive array of high-end specs.

Sporting a 1GHz dual-core processor the Xoom packs in 720p HD video recording alongside a 5-megapixel rear-mounted camera, 32GB of internal storage and a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800p display.
