Motorola Xoom Not Zooming Off Shelves

"Analysts are raining bad news on Motorola lately over sluggish sales of some of its key products. The Xoom Android tablet and Atrix smartphone are being called out as poor performers, despite heavy marketing campaigns launched by Verizon Wireless and AT&T, respectively."

Frankly, I think the two main hurdles for the Xoom are dedicated app availability, which is currently very poor, and pricing. The app situation may improve, but I know that I would be leery of spending that much money on something that just may not have the software support in place. Even when I bought my iPad early on, there were a great number of apps and the count was going up every day.

While the Atrix is an interesting concept, perhaps it is a solution in search of a problem? Is this laptop docking a functionality that anyone is really looking for?
