Motorola’s Atrix and Xoom devices revenues

Motorola Xoom And Atrix Sales “Disappointing”
John Biggs recaps Motorola’s Atrix and Xoom devices revenues.

“According to Pacific Crest analyst James Faucette, quoted in Forbes, sales of the Motorola Atrix and Xoom devices, darlings of the CES rodeo, have been ‘disappointing.’ Ironically, the very devices designed to bring Motorola out of its 2010 slump have added to its doldrums and Faucette believes that the company must ‘quickly adjust and refresh its product portfolio’ in order to remain competitive. He cited sales ‘cheaper’ smartphones like the the $49 iPhone 3GS as the primary reason for the lackluster performance.”

Samsung’s 3D TV experience is getting cheaper: two pairs of glasses packed in, $50 for extras
Richard Lawler writes about Samsung’s active shutter 3D glasses.

“As the battle between active and passive 3D glasses display technology heats up, Samsung has responded by announcing its cheapest pair of active shutter 3D glasses will cost $50 (previously $130) beginning May 1st. Additionally, all of its 3D-capable 2011 HDTVs will come with two pairs of glasses packed in, unless the purchase is eligible for the Megamind/Shrek starter kit that already comes with them. This move comes just as FPR-based displays from LG, Vizio, Toshiba and Philips hit the marketplace.”
