Is the Motorola XOOM headed to AT&T?
Even though the tablet from the FCC filing hides behind the mysterious IHDT56ME1 identification number, it is already speculated that it is nothing more than a version of the Motorola XOOM bound for AT&T. Judging by the clues within the listing, the tablet will carry a 850/1900 MHz radio with support for GSM and WCDMA connectivity, which makes it a perfect match for AT&T's cellular network. So could this be a Motorola XOOM for AT&T or could it be a completely different device, which has surprisingly never leaked before? As much as we would love to be surprised by Motorola, the manufacturer has never officially announced that it is developing another tablet – a successor to the XOOM or a differently-sized sibling.
Launching the Motorola XOOM for AT&T should not be much of a surprise since we already mentioned how Sprint is also getting ready to start offering its own Wi-Fi and WiMAX versions of it. Making the tablet available through the largest carrier in the U.S. might just be what it takes to tackle those disappointing sales figures. Stay tuned for a concrete confirmation from Motorola or AT&T, as one should not be too far away.
