Why the delay? No one knows for sure but the current hypothesis points to a compatibility issue with WiMAX and Honeycomb or a 4G exclusivity agreement with Verizon Wireless. Hopefully if Sprint does offer the WiFi version first, the carrier will bundle it with a 3G/4G hotspot so customers can connect to Sprint 4G network using a WiFi connection.

THese numbers reportedly meet Motorola’s early sales goals, but fall short of the estimated millions of iPad 2 tablets that Apple has reportedly sold. For Android fans, though, there is little doubt the Xoom is at the top of the tablet market with its 10-inch display and Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system.
