Sprint appears poised to be the second US carrier to offer the Motorola Xoom Android Honeycomb tablet, with accessories starting to appear for the 10.1-inch, 1280×800 slate. In fact, the accessory pictured above is said to be the same protective case whose existence was tipped by BGR earlier this week. According to reports from that site, the initial Sprint Xoom will only sport Wi-Fi, with WiMax support not coming until an unknown future date. That would match the pattern of the Verizon Xoom rollout, wherein high-speed LTE data won’t be available until well after launch. (Edit: Verizon’s Xoom does include EV-DO, as will the Sprint version with all likelihood. — Thanks Jarrett K)
Currently, the Wi-Fi-only Xoom costs $600, and offers a gig of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and five-megapixel rear camera, all powered by a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset.
