Found an interesting leak from the guys over at Spantechular showing off an internal document from Sprint advertising the WiFi only Xoom for $600 and launching on May 8th. Phandroid’s very own ninjas were quick to add validity to this claim citing, “something big” hitting the Now Network in the next few weeks.
If May 8th is sounding a little familiar to you, thats becuase it is also the same day we will see the launch of Samsung Nexus S 4G and RIM’s Blackberry Playbook (unless it sees more delays). We saw T-Mobile’s big launch day last week with the simultaneous release of the LG G2X, Samsung Sidekick 4G and LG G-Slate and it looks as if Sprint may be feeling the heat.
Carrier wars aside, I am excited to be on Sprint and I can’t help but wonder what else the new underdog might have up their sleeve for May 8th?
