Motorola had one of the best CES showings
of any company in recent memory, and now we've got some rough ship dates for all that new gear: CEO Sanjay Jha just announced on the company's earnings call
that the Atrix 4G
for AT&T and 3G Xoom
for Verizon will arrive at "the end of February," while the LTE-enabled Droid Bionic
and LTE Xoom
will arrive at "the end of the second quarter" as previously promised. That sounds good to us -- and with that earlier Best Buy leak suggesting the Xoom will hit on February 17
, we're hoping that Moto's taking a long view of when the end of February actually begins. Even better, a late February Xoom release supports those rumors that Honeycomb will be generally released in March
, which is when the real Android tablet invasion will begin. It's all happening, folks.
Oh boy. Jha followed up his Xoom comments in the Q&A portion by hinting that the Xoom might slip to March, but that he's very confident they'll make their timeline. Fingers crossed.
