While analysts had low expectations of the Xoom tablet, the actual sales numbers for the Android Honeycomb device were anybody’s guess. Fortunately, speculations can finally be put to rest as Motorola revealed its Q1 2011 earnings report this Friday, with decent Xoom performance numbers to boot.
According to the financial results report for Motorola Mobility, the cellular company confirmed 250,000 Xoom tablets shipped for its first quarter in market. Of course, units “shipped” does not necessarily translate to units “sold,” but 250k units is still a respectable number, especially since overall revenue for the quarter was at $3 billion, 22% higher than Q1 2010.
In the grand scheme of things, however, the tablet was but a small fraction of Motorola’s revenue. Of the 9.3 million Motorola devices shipped during Q1 2011, 4.1 million were smartphones, which was over 16 times the number of Xoom tablets. As tablets become more mainstream this year, we expect them to start leaving a larger mark on the company’s future financial results. Check out the full Motorola earnings report below.
