Motorola was betting big on Atrix and first honeycomb tablet Xoom, but it seems things haven’t gone Motorola way.
According to Pacific Crest analyst James Faucette, Sell-through trends for both the Xoom tablet and the Atrix smart phone have been disappointing. Atrix has been particularly sad story because of the availability of cheaper options in the form of HTC Inspire and more.
Motorola Atrix and Xoom were announced at Consumer Electronics Show in January and were being anticipated to be best-sellers, but it seems the not-so-ready Honeycomb, and higher price has let Motorola down. On the other hand, Atrix is a real-Android superphone with incredible accessories, but prices of other smartphones stole the show from it.
