3G versions of tablets are invariably more expensive than the Wi-Fi-only versions and if you think that the estimated $800 price of the 3G Motorola XOOM Android tablet is a little steep, there might be some good news for you. Folks have discovered an FCC filing for a “wireless tablet with embedded WLAN” that is manufactured by Motorola. Of course, there isn’t any official confirmation as to what this device is, but the smart money is on a Wi-Fi-only version of the XOOM tablet. The device is labeled as the IHDT56MT1 and features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support, without any mention of cellular radios. Hopefully this means that we’ll be able to get our mittens on a cheaper version of the Motorola XOOM tablet too.
