Sprint is reported to offer the Wi-Fi Motorola XOOM first with a WiMAX version later
Although we’ve been seeing some good indicators regarding the Motorola XOOM with Sprint, the latest reporting about the Honeycomb filled tablet with the pin dropping network throws a pickle into the mix.

Just when we were hoping to see a WiMAX driven Motorola XOOM in the very near future, we’re now hearing reports that Sprint will basically offer the Wi-Fi only version of the tablet first – then some time after that, we’ll see the WiMAX variant. However, it’s not known exactly what kind of time frame the wait will be between when the Wi-Fi only XOOM is released and when the WiMAX version becomes available.

Additionally, it’s rather difficult to confirm whether or not this move is possibly related to technical issues with Honeycomb, or rather, something that’s happening due to the exclusive deal that Verizon has with the tablet.

Let’s just hope that it’s not a long wait considering that other tablets will be making their presence known – which may lessen the desire for a WiMAX Motorola XOOM.
