A source who manages one of the Sprint Preferred retail locations and wishes to remain anonymous, sent us a copy of the latest Sprint dealers newsletter, which has some news about when the carrier would launch the Motorola XOOM. The newsletter reveals that the XOOM is expected to be launched from Sprint on May 8th. As we previously reported
, the carrier is planning on offering the Wi-Fi version of the Honeycomb flavored tablet first with plans to offer a WiMAX enabled 4G version down the road. No time frame has been released as to when this will take place.
As you can see from the image below, Sprint is matching Verizon by putting a price tag of $599.99 on the device.
Thanks, anonymous tipster!
