  • Where's the Line for the Motorola XOOM? On! 0 comments
    Mar 31, 2011 1:00 PM | about stocks: GOOG, AMZN

    Many people mocked the launch of Motorola Mobility's XOOM tablet by asking "Where's the line?" in reference to lines that often form at Apple stores when Jobs & Co. release their latest-and-greatest gadget.  

    While there aren't any lines outside Staples, Costco, or Best Buy, there is one place where there is a "line" of sorts for the Motorola XOOM -  For the past few days, Amazon (meaning the company itself, acting as a reseller) has been sold out of the XOOM - as of this morning, more XOOM are promised to be in-stock by Saturday.  (See the listing or an image of the listing below.)

    Again, no tangible numbers are available and I don't want to get too enthusiastic about the XOOM launch, but I think it's hard to negatively spin the fact that Amazon sold all of its initial inventory of XOOMs in a few days.  

    Hopefully, Motorola has more XOOMs on the way to retailers - moving as many as possible during the next few weeks/months before the next wave of tablets hits the market would be in Motorola's best interest.
