With an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor inside every Android tablet, you can expect them to have some public views on the sale of such tablets.
Their view is not a happy one, as revealed by CEO Jen-Hsung Huang – who is “not pleased with the cool reception” that Android tablets have had. In two and a half months, Motorola managed to shift just 250,000 Xoom‘s. By stark comparison, Apple sold a million iPad 2′s on the launch weekend.
See what Huang blames for the “cool reception” after the break.
It’s a point of sales problem. It’s an expertise at retail problem. It’s a marketing problem to consumers. It is a price point problem. And it’s a software richness of content problem.
The baseline configuration included 3G when it shouldn’t have… Tablets should have a WiFi configuration and be more affordable. And those are the ones that were selling more rapidly than the 3G and fully configured ones.
