Picture of Sprint branded Motorola XOOM tablet is developed
Just yesterday we reported that based on a tip from an Android and Me reader,  Sprint would be offering two Motorola devices currently being sold by other carriers. One device is the Motorola ATRIX 4G, currently on AT&T's line-up, while the other product is the Honeycomb flavored Motorola XOOM tablet now available at Verizon.

To further the speculation about the XOOM, a member of the Sprint Users forum named r0fl has posted a picture of what appears to be a Sprint branded XOOM. While the Sprint and Verizon specs should be the same, the question surrounding the former's variant would be, is the unit going to ship with WiMAX or will it launch with 3G and require a factory upgrade to 4G. This, of course, is what Motorola is doing with the initial units of the XOOM which have been launched with 3G and will need to be sent to Motorola to get an update to connect to Big Red's LTE pipelines as we told you.

theres something strange around the sprint logo. Appears to be some doctoring to that. Prove me wrong though Motorola, please!

I believe the Moto Atrix is coming to Sprint. but the Xoom? i highly doubt. it will most likely remain a Verizon exclusive. besides, have you ever heard the phrase photoshopped?!

The xoom is coming to nTelos a regional phone carrier that uses Sprints network. It is highly possible for this to happen.

Again, Why everyone is rushing to buy the current generation of half-wit tablets is confusing. Christmas/holiday season will be the time to buy a tablet, for they will be able to perform at a laptop level and maybe even beyond. If I did buy a tablet, it would be the 10.1 galaxy. It is light, functional, and samsumg does not lock down their equipment.

lol, i agree with most of that, but the xoom is not locked down, so the last part doesnt apply. Tegra3 will be out around summer and tegra 4 by christmas which is like 8x more powerful than the tegra2. I'll wait. Of course the battery will probably be a car battery attached by some wires, but hey.. lol

Why is the sprint emblem a lighter shade then motorola and the sprint emblem doesn't appear to be tilted towards us like like motorola is..and you notice where it shows rOfl it's a simular shade of the sprint emblem and motorola. Could've been photoshopped. But hey who knows?

This will be a big seller for Sprint. Can't wait for it to get here. It'll probably be selling at a great price too I predict.

I don't know but cdma atrix? I doubt it that's a gsm model, in any case would be more likely a Sprint version of the Bionic, but you never know

Don't ever in your life buy this xoom for Sprint!! I have the evo with no 4g coverage only 3g. 3g speeds are super slow on my evo!! 100kb/s down 86kb/s up!! Seriously!! I hate Sprint 3g! Those speeds are every where I get 3g coverage
