The latest Motorola tablet has been getting lots of headlines, but not all are exactly praising the device. Recent Xoom sales and benchmarks, for example, appear to pale against the giant that is Apple’s iPad 2. Perhaps it is for these reasons that recent leaks about the device coming to the Sprint network are currently appearing.

Forum site Sprint Users is claiming that the Motorola Xoom is making its way to a new network, with picture proof of the tablet sporting the Sprint logo. According to Electronista, this information is from the same forum member that leaked the MiFi 4082 last December and may hold credibility for this latest rumor.

The 10.1-inch Xoom is currently available through Verizon Wireless with a Wi-Fi only model coming later this month. Whether or not the Xoom tablet for Sprint would be WiMAX-compatible is unknown, but certainly users shouldn’t have to go through the whole returning process in order to outfit their newly purchased tablets with 4G support.

If rumors are true, chances are we should be hearing official announcements directly from Sprint at the CTIA trade show this month beginning March 21st. Hopefully, we can expect more information and surprises from phone carriers during the event.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
