To have just have one entry into the tablet market is perhaps not the best of business strategies. The latest to endorse this sentiment is none other than Sanjay Jha, the CEO at Motorola Mobility, who has echoed this train of thought at Motorola’s earnings call. He proclaimed that now is the time for Motorola take the full plunge into the tablet computer game.
When Sanjay Jha talks, people indeed listen. He was mainly at the call to investors and shareholders was pointing at actually is a multi pronged attack at the tablet segment. Where his company will be issuing several new tablet PCs with each of them in different size segment and covering different price points. Also, Jha stressed on the need to have specific products for niche segments similar to the industry’s effort to have a separate tablet PC for use almost exclusively by the enterprise sector. Kind of like what Cisco is doing with their Cius business tablet coming out soon.
So while these might provide us with a glimpse of what to expect from the phone giant during the rest of the year. But as far as tablet PCs are concerned, the company’s immediate tablet plans are hinged on the XOOM and things are well on track for a late February launch. The Xoom is pivitol to the success of Motorolas foray into the world of next generation tablets featuring the newest iteration of Google Honeycomb.
