Come May 8 and all Sprint stores online or otherwise will be seen playing host to the world’s first Honeycomb tablet – Motorola Xoom. Price for the tablet has been stated to be $600. Also, with Sprint now offering the Xoom as well, this will mark the second major carrier after Verizon to have the Motorola Xoom in its inventory. However, there is nothing to be too excited with the Sprint’s offer as the price mentioned is pretty much the same as any one else offering the Wi-Fi version of the Motorola tablet.
However, there still is an exciting aspect to the Sprint offer in that those who wish to avail of Sprint’s 3G or 4G network can do so via a Wi-Fi hotspot device. If taken that way and using a Wi-Fi hotspot device is not much of an issue than the Sprint deal can in fact can be a lot more attractive in that one is not shelling out the $800 that Verizon is charging. Verizon is right now selling the 3G enabled Xoom with the promise of a free upgrade to its 4G LTE network in future.
So if the Sprint’s offer sounds lucrative enough, have the requisite cash ready by Sunday, the 8th of May.
