The XOOM hasn’t been quite the saving grace Motorola thought it would be — at least not in one quarter. Motorola announced (PDF) XOOM sales figures today with an amount that may stun you…250,000. In reality, that’s not really all that bad. However, due to a massive advertising budget for the “DROID Does” mantra took it’s toll in the form of an $81 million net loss. Of course, considering we were looking at a $212 million loss but one short year ago twists today’s news in a much fairer light.

Nevertheless, we still really like the XOOM. If only Motorola were quicker with updates and a bit less adventurous with the price.

    I really like the Motorola XOOM. I can’t decide whether to get Motorola’s tablet or the iPad.

    What do you like better: Android or iOS? That’s perhaps the biggest question. If you’re still not sure — Android allows a ton of customization from the get. To get the same level of customization you have to jailbreak your iOS device. Not hard, but another added step. Personally, I prefer the look and feel of iOS to Android. Though Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) is bringing Android closer to “perfection” in consistency.
