Motorola ships just 100,000 Xoom tablets last quarter

Motorola Mobility just announced their Q3 earnings and within these sparkling financial details are a nugget of information for its shipment numbers for mobile devices. Their Android-rocking tablet, Xoom, only shipped 100,000 during Q3, that's shipped, not sold. The Xoom did just get a price slash down to $400, but this was after Q3 ended.

It will be early 2012 before we know if the price cut helps the Xoom sales, but comparing them to Apple, the iPad shipped 11.1 million during Q3. Motorola after months of delays started upgrading Xooms to work with Verizon's LTE network, with the process requiring Xoom owners to send their tablets away for an upgrade.

Motorola is also expected to announce the Xoom successor quite soon, with teases of the new device showing a thinner build and cut off corners like the Droid Razr's. It shouldn't be long before we're talking about Xoom 2 (if Motorola continue to use the name). Check out the leaked screenshot of the Xooms successor below:
