1 Million Motorola XOOM’s to be Sold by Middle of 2011
XOOM is expected to hit stores worldwide in March and the target being fixed is said to be 1 million unit sales by the mid point of 2011!
Motorola’s first tablet will also be the first tablet on sale packing Googleâ€™s Android 3.0, Honeycomb operating system.Â So a double hit for early adopters then 😉
Now, there has been rumours that the XOOM’s asking price will be around Â£700. This has obviously not been confirmed and is probably no more than a tech retailer slinging up a random pre-order price to drive outraged traffic to their site.
If you recall the Galaxy Tab started at a silly price and now is available for around Â£400 – or Â£99 on a subsidised tariff. I’m sure that the marketing bods at Moto know that they have to be at least in the ball park of the current king – entry level iPads are going for around Â£439.
The XOOM is packing though – Under the hood is a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 10.1-inch 1280 x 800p display, cameras front and rear with 720p HD video recording capabilities and 32GB of internal storage.
I’m still tempted but will need to see a REAL price – anyone got any details?
