The Motorola Xoom is struggling to gain purchase in the tablet market, according to a new report from Deutsche Bank.

This week Deutsche Bank analysts estimated that Motorola sold about 100,000 Xoom units since the tablet launch in February. By comparison, Apple – the current king of the tablet heap – reportedly sold somewhere between 400,000 to 500,000 iPad 2 units in the first weekend that device was available. So what do the disappointing sales say about the future of the tablet market?

Well, over at the Fortune website, Seth Weintraub admits things look grim for the Xoom – but warns against counting out tablets running Google's Android OS.
