    New Bestbuy display for the xoom

    So I thought I would share an interesting story with you guys about the xoom and its sales at my local best buy. I went to best buy yesterday to pick up the HD speaker dock and a Bluetooth mouse. The first thing I noticed is a brand new xoom display right next to the I pad 2. The display has a wifi and 3g unit on display and a bunch of nice accessories right there with it. I made sure to check and both of the units were running 3.1.

    So I decided to go check out the cage where they keep the tablets and notice they are completely out of xooms. I ask a sales associate and she says since the new display, the xoom has been selling really well. About two weeks ago, I was at the same best buy and there were at least 6 3g xooms and 15-20 wifi only units in that same cage. So in 2 weeks at my local best buy, the store sold over 20 units.

    Anyway, I thought it was an interesting story and I thought I'd see if anyone else has noticed the new xoom display at best buy. If my local best buy is any example, xoom sales are starting to pick up. So it looks like Motorola listened to somebody and decided to improve their displays at best buy and it seems to be working.

    Yes. I also noticed that many of their stores only have the MS Bluetooth mouse. Plenty of wireless but only that one that is Bluetooth. With 3.1 and that display, it'd be nice to see them start to carry more. They may not even realize the product is capable of though. So, that may be asking for too much.

    Any pics of the display?

    Let's hope they are updated to run 3.1 too

    Haven't been to bestbuy since I picked up the xoom a couple months ago just before the wifi ver came out but I'm happy to hear it finally has a proper display. When i got mine it was just lying there with the netbooks/laptops. They should set one up with the HD speaker dock, Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, I bet it would sell even better.

    So a BT mouse is recognized by the Xoom and works?

    I will have to try this!

    It would be nice for them to advertise the xoom display with a BT mouse hooked up

    Yeah... New display at the Lubbock TX store. They sold out fast after putting it up according to the associates. Amazing what a little marketing will do. Give it equal time withe the I devices and a lot more people will figure out that its right for them.

    This has been implemented as a part of the new dedicated tablet section Best Buy is creating.
