Sprint’s WiFi-Only XOOM Now Available


If for whatever reason you didn’t want to get this thing from Motorola or any third-party retailers, another buying spot for the Motorola XOOM WiFi has opened up – your local Sprint store. We can’t imagine any of you will find any real incentive getting it from there, but it’s always nice to know. The version we really want to know about – the one with 4G – has yet to be unveiled, unfortunately. Sources say we should be seeing it late Spring or early Summer, but don’t hold me to that. The Honeycomb tablet is available for $600 in-store. [via Android Central]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Too much!!!

    1. …for you!!!

      1. It is much considering Transformer is $200 cheaper (though hard to find, I’ve heard) and Galaxy Tab $100 cheaper (when it’s released in a month). Both of them are better devices than Xoom.

        1. Galaxy Tab == Unreleased Product and Non-Vanilla Android so I could argue you can’t yet make a case for it being a better device than the Xoom.

        2. Which is why I got the Verizon version. I want the ability to activate LTE and use data anywhere without having to tether to my phone.

        3. You are obviously delusional if you think the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is superior to the XOOM. Unless of course you like proprietary ports and the complete lack of a microSD slot.

          As for the Tansformer, let me know when it can match the XOOM’s battery life.

          1. I have the Transformer, and the keyboard dock, and I get 16.5 hrs of battery life. A little over 9 hours on the tablet alone. Any more questions?

          2. I have the XOOM, and I don’t need a keyboard dock to exceed 10 hours. Last week, I hadn’t plugged in my XOOM or turned it off for 3 days, constantly connected to either 3G or Wi-Fi, and I was still at 20+%.

            Glad you like you’re Transformer, but I need to be connected on the road, and it certainly was worth the extra money. Tethering is like a half-assed attempt at the definition of being connected on the road.

            Sent from my XOOM while sitting in a parking lot.

      2. I’m waiting until they firesale it, which hopefully will be soon given the XOOM’s disappointing sales so far.

        1. Last time I checked, no one knew the official sales figures for the XOOM.

          The people in line with me on launch morning (3G version), and the three people who came in looking for the portfolio case since the Verizon store had sold out all seemed very happy with their purchase.

          1. “Last time I checked, no one knew the official sales figures for the XOOM.”

            I think Motorola might know……

            Well at least how many were “shipped”.

  2. I really don’t see my mom spending $600 with this economy for a tablet. I am waiting for Asus to be available again and I will go for that. $400 you can’t go wrong with that.

    1. I’m with ya on that. I picked up the Acer last week for $450. Really not a bad option. It’s pretty speedy and the connectivity is tops. It’s a little too heavy for my taste in seeing how I use it, so I may end up returning it. But it’s honestly a pretty great tab for the price.

  3. Another purchasing option is always nice. Sprint is bringing the thunder this year and their are many choices to choose from. After all that’s exactly what it’s all about choice.

    1. No surprise here.

      1. Your definitely not kidding

  4. stop whying about a price

  5. “Sprint’s” WiFi only Xoom? Umm explain to me how this is different from Verizon’s WiFi only Xoom. This makes no sense lol

    1. Verizon’s Xoom isn’t WiFi-only. It has Verizon’s 3G and will receive a free upgrade to use LTE in the future.

      1. I get that but what I’m saying is if this is WiFi only then how is it “Sprint’s” Xoom. If you can’t use 3G or 4G then why is it associated with sprint?

  6. No Netflix support no go!

  7. I’m not sure why a Sprint branded wifi will matter … unless it gets put on a separate update cycle (updates come from sprint instead of Motorola?) in which case it could annoy early adopters if this new one got updates faster …

    That said: I agree it’s over priced. But then again … I own two of them (for me and Wife) so I probably am not the best person to be complaining about cost.
