Can $90 in freebies help jump-start Droid Xyboard sales?

If you’re subscribed to Motorola’s website then you’ve probably received an email this week, advising that the Droid Xyboard tablets were being offered with limited-time promotions.  For those who are not, Motorola is selling both models with $90 in free accessories in the form of portfolio case and HD dock.   The tablets themselves have not changed and the price still remains unchanged at $399 and up for the 8.2-inch and $499 and up for the 10.1-inch model.

It’s not a secret that Android tablets could be doing much better and that Motorola has yet to really take off with any of their models.  My question to you is whether or not this limited-time bundle adds all that much value to you.  Would you give it any added thought and consider the package?  Or, would you rather Motorola just shave the price off the tablet itself and sell it that way?
