Sprint has officially announced that the WiFi-only version of the Motorola XOOM Android tablet will be arriving on May 8. The tablet that was released earlier this year was mostly shunned due to his high price. Well, the WiFi-only version of the tablet will be arriving next Sunday on Sprint, and it will be priced $200 less than the current offering due to its lack of 3G connectivity. Sprint hasn’t mentioned any MiFi bundle plans, but you can be sure to expect some in the near future.
The Motorola XOOM is the world’s first Android Honeycomb tablet, and packs a 10.1″ widescreen HD display, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a rear 5megapixel camera, a front facing 2megapixel camera, 32GB of internal storage, HDMI output, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. It will go on sale through Sprint Direct Ship sales channels including Sprint’s website, on May 8 for $599.99. No word on whether a 3G/4G version will be arriving on the network in the future, but now you know you can get it cheaper if you were going to use your phone to tether or predominantly use the tablet at home anyway.
