Orders for the production of tablets Motorola Xoom in the first quarter of 2011 reached approximately 700-800 thousand pieces: the first half of March, the company Motorola has already placed orders for about 200 thousand of these tablets, but only for March delivery may reach 400-500 thousand units . In February, according to component suppliers, it shipped about 200 thousand Xoom.
However, in the second quarter, the monthly orders for Xoom, as reported Taiwanese sources will steadily decrease, while orders for the production will come just before the end of June.
Already in April, the monthly orders Motorola to produce Xoom will fall about 1.5 times to 300 thousand units, and in May will drop below $ 300 thousand Sources indicate that the reason for the reduction of orders is unintelligible Xoom position in the market and relatively low sales . Motorola is going in the second half of the year to present a new tablet Xoom, after assessing the situation.
Resource Digitimes, citing its sources, predicts that this year, Motorola will sell between 3 million to 5 million tablets on Android.
