According to Forbes and Pacific Crest analyst James Faucette, “sell-through trends” for the two dual-core devices “have been disappointing.”
Moto Atrix 4G sales, for example, are said to be “well below forecast.” The Atrix is offered only by AT&T in the US, for $199 on contract, and faces fierce competition from smartphones like the HTC Inspire 4G ($99 on contract), or Apple’s iPhone 3GS ($49 on contract).
The Xoom is currently sold by Verizon and Cellular South, and a Wi-Fi-only version of it can be bought, too.
Reportedly, Sprint may also launch the Atrix and the Xoom soon – this, of course, should help sales a bit (or maybe a bit more).
Motorola has not announced how many units of the Xoom and Atrix have been shipped until now.
