Following in the footsteps of RIM”s BlackBerry Playbook tablet, which reached 12,000 new hands in just 4 days approaching 2012, Motorola”s Xoom tab too intends to join the party with a hefty price cut of their own.
RIM officially announced on December 28 that they are offering the Playbook at a 50% discount, with the offer valid only for a limited period. Today, they revealed some staggering sales figures have spurred them to increase the “offer” by another week. Serves right for a tablet who garnered criticism from all ends after it was initially regarded an iPad-competitor but failed miserably, mainly on the software front. Now, after making quite a few bucks and almost selling out its entire stock, RIM”s hungry for more and knows a price-cut is the only way to sell some BB tabs. And in light of this successful strategy, Motorola”s Xoom is now being retailed at a 44% discount, albeit only by a single online retailer and not officially by Motorola itself.
The 32GB Wi-Fi only model is now available for as low as Rs. 21,500 (44% discount) and the 32GB Wi-Fi 3G model is selling for Rs. 25,000 (29% discount).
There”s no official word yet from Motorola and we don”t really know when the new price will be standardized by the retailers across the country. But what we do know is that the strategy is working. At least on a short-term basis.

CES is an annual technology event which takes place in the first quarter of every year. Many new gadgets and technological advancements are showcased every year, and this year Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer will demonstrate few slates, which he thinks will “offer some competition to the Apple iPad”.
The NYTimes reports: Next month, at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Microsoft will present a slew of new slates that it hopes will offer some competition to the Apple iPad, which has quickly become the leader in this market.
According to people familiar with Microsoft’s plans, Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s chief executive, is expected to announce a number of these devices when he takes the stage at C.E.S., showcasing devices built by Samsung and Dell, among a number of other manufacturing partners.
Oh yeah? We’ll see how much competition they do offer, Mr. CEO!
