Analyst rough estimate has just 100,000 Xooms shipped so far

Deutsche Bank guesses just 100,000 Xooms shipped

Analysts at Deutsche Bank have put a potential number on talk of possibly slow Xoom sales in a new research note. Extrapolating from data in Google's Platform Versions chart, it estimated that about 100,000 of Motorola's tablet had shipped between the February 24 debut and the end of March. The prediction also likely included a small number of hacked installs on other devices.

Motorola has never publicly discussed its Xoom shipment figures and might not quantify them until its next quarterly results, if at all.

The figure is likely to be off of the actual count without more concrete data at hand. It might still reflect a relatively tepid adoption and is supported in the abstract by Google's Android figures, which put 3.0 at just 0.2 percent and well under the 2.5 percent using a Nexus S or Nexus One with Android 2.3.

Low Xoom adoption has been blamed partly on the limited launch. The February 24 release was limited to just the 3G edition for Verizon, putting the minimum asking price at $800. Wi-Fi versions only began showing in late March, and international releases are only just beginning with launches for Canada this week and other countries soon. Apple shipped the iPad 2 to about 25 countries two weeks after the US and starts at $500 for a Wi-Fi version and $630 for 3G.

    What about the REAL numbers?

    100,000 shipped in not necessarily 100,000 sold, as we discovered from others' jockeyed "sales" figures.

    So, just give us the real numbers: Shipped. Sold. Returned.

    100,000 for channel stuffing, 90,000 RMA

    It's a typo. I am sure they meant to use D instead of X, but the two keys being so close, someone slipped.
