To put a nice, red bow on this wrapped up story about the Motorola ATRIX 4G and Motorola XOOM’s sales on AT&T and Verizon respectively, both carriers chimed in to say that they are pleased with customer reception and the sales of said devices.
Verizon said about the Motorola XOOM, “We are pleased with customer response to the Xoom.” (Yes, I could pick that statement apart like a cherry tree, but I won’t.) Conversely, AT&T stated that their “customers are very satisfied with the Atrix, and [they] are equally as pleased with the results to date.”
Without seeing some hard numbers we can’t see just how pleasing these numbers really are, but we can’t argue with them. (And if they are as bad as folks have said they are then you better believe they won’t be releasing any sales figures any time soon.)
At least for the Motorola XOOM, one analyst cleverly pieced together information from Google and other research firms and came up with 100,000 – the number is .2% of 50,000,000 with the .2% being how many Android devices out and about are running Android 3.0.
It’s worthy to note that Verizon’s number for their 3G (and soon to be 4G)-enabled version could be significantly lower than that as the WiFi-only Motorola XOOM made its way into the market as early as March 25th – the data that firm Deutsche Bank based their study on was taken from a two week period ending April 1st.
Whatever the case is, Verizon’s happy, AT&T’s happy, so why can’t we all just be happy? [via Computer World]
