The Motorola Xoom has been available in the US for a while now, though only from Verizon in 3G-capable form, a Wi-Fi-only version being for sale elsewhere. Even Cellular South, a carrier, is slated to start selling the Wi-Fi-only Motorola Xoom sometime in the future.
It’s then no surprise that yet another US carrier, namely US Cellular, is planning to stock the first tablet to run Android 3.0 Honeycomb. According to a leaked internal document that Android Central managed to grab, US Cellular is quite excited to be launching the Xoom in the second quarter of this year.
Translation: the Motorola Xoom will be available at US Cellular before the end of June (if nothing comes up in the meantime, of course). Unfortunately it’s unclear whether US Cellular is getting a 3G-enabled version of the tablet, or just that Wi-Fi-only device that is headed to Cellular South as well as Sprint. It would be interesting to see which one is going to land at US Cellular if only to try and speculate on whether Verizon has some kind of exclusivity deal going on with Motorola in the US for the 3G variant of the tablet (time-based or not).
Fret not though, for we’re bound to find out soon enough, at the rate of leaks we’re currently seeing regarding the Xoom.
If you liked the post, you might find these interesting too:
- Cellular South gets Motorola Xoom too, Wi-Fi-only but bundled with MiFi and cheap monthly data
- Wi-Fi-only Motorola Xoom now available at some US Cellular retail locations for $599.99
- Sprint to get Wi-Fi Motorola Xoom first, 4G WiMax version later
- Motorola Xoom and Atrix sales are disappointing (or so it seems)
- Sprint launching Motorola Atrix and Motorola Xoom?
