Motorola XOOM with Wi-Fi only hits the FCC

We do know that the landing page of the Motorola XOOM has already gone live a few days ago, and that will clearly heighten the anticipation for folks who want one of the more promising tablet devices out there in the market sometime down the road. Well, as you all know, any electronic device that intends to make their way to the US will first have to jump through the hoops put forward by the FCC, and there is a new Motorola XOOM apparently that has arrived at such a turning point.
This model seems to be a Wi-Fi only version (reminds you of the iPad as well as the Amazon Kindle, doesn’t it?), so if such a variant were to make its way to the market, you can bet your bottom dollar that this means it will be more affordably priced than the $800 quoted for the 3G Motorola XOOM tablet.
The recent filing spotted pointed towards the FCC testing a “wireless tablet with embedded WLAN” manufactured by Motorola, and surely it doesn’t mean another tablet apart from the XOOM, does it? After all, there was no mention of a cellular radio anywhere.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
