  • Motorola XOOM Tablet Outselling iPad on Amazon.com 0 comments

    I noticed a few days ago that Amazon.com had started to accept preorders for the WiFi-only Motorola XOOM.  At the time, the listing lacked sales information, but today, XOOM's popularity on Amazon.com has been revealed.  The listing, as of 4pm (eastern time) on Saturday appeared as in the following screenshot.  To view the listing itself, click the followign text: MOTOROLA XOOM Android Tablet (Wi-Fi)

    A listing of the "Top 100 in Computers and Accessories" shows:



    This is a pleasant surprise for Android fans, technology enthusiasts and MMI shareholders (I am one).  Consumers had been eagerly awaiting a cheaper WiFi-only XOOM, but blog comments doesn't necessarily translate into sales.  This piece of evidence certainly doesn't mean that the XOOM's sales success is guaranteed, but it's very heartening after plenty of pre-launch concerns and mixed feelings about the original $800 XOOM.

    And a quick note to people who may have been reading my eariler XOOM articles: The two-week publishing gap was due to spring break and recovery.  I plan to resume covering MMI and the XOOM soon.
