Sprint Xoom tablet spotted in the wild

Yesterday we reported that the Motorola Atrix and Xoom were headed to Sprint and now we have an image to back up half of that claim. This morning an image of a Sprint-branded Xoom appeared on the fan site SprintUsers. It came from well known forums member r0fl who leaked previous unreleased Sprint devices (like the EVO Shift), so we have every reason to believe this is the real deal.

No hard evidence was provided about the Xoom’s network support, but we heard it will operate on Sprint’s 4G WiMAX network. The Verizon Xoom will eventually support 4G LTE, but we have no idea when that upgrade will happen so there is a chance that Sprint could have the first Xoom tablet with 4G speeds.

Now that the Xoom has been confirmed, I expect we will see Sprint’s version of the Atrix 4G leak out next. There is a small chance that these devices might be announced next week at CTIA in Orlando, but our original tipster said that Sprint was waiting until next month to make the announcement.

        Why are you replacing a phone with a tablet?

          Maybe he was talking about the Atrix. I was wondering the same thing.

      If you own a 4G Andeoid phone ypu can always always just tether it to the wifi only. That’s what I do this my iPad. I tether it to my Dell Steak. Saves the monthly data fee for the tablet. And a couple hundred off the price.

    Just glad to see Sprint finally bringing some advanced stuff into the game! They were falling behind fast but if they have all this coming out and a Evo 3d and tablet, they just might jump back up to ahead of the game again.

    Hi noo…folks!
    What a week.
    As you know, im one of the few obliged and chosen, who were able to get the new iPad 2!
    What a magnificent device.
    During the week i have completely forgotten about other, android devices and thats possibly because of the phenomenal iPad 2 and -in contrast- the relatively clumsy xoom, manufactured by the meandroid villains.
    The xoom isnt exactly terrible nor poor, but I dont think it can hold a candle against the super-thin, super-fast iPad 2, girls. Look at this. The iPad 2 is thin, the xoom is fat.
    Do you rather wanna date a thin girl, or a fat girl?
    Captain obvious
    (well ok, i think you are more into the boy-boy relationship but whatever….)

    Keep it up.
    cheers, Ben
