Motorola Xoom Pricing: Will It Hurt Worldwide Launch?

At last some good news about the Motorola Xoom, since all the bad reports regarding the price it was getting before it even hit the shops . “‘They’re off to a good start,” according to Sanjay Jha said.

With 75 percent of Motorola’s income generated by the US, they are seeking to be a global seller.
