Verizon rumored to sell a 16 GB Motorola Xoom 4G LTE


There are a number of possible reasons why Verizon may be about to sell a 16 GB version of the Motorola Xoom 4G LTE Android 3.0 (Honeycomb). Perhaps they sold so many of the earlier Wi-Fi only and 32 GB models that they couldn't resist; perhaps consumer demand was so strong they simply had to give in; or perhaps they sold both of the earlier samples they had in stock, and now there's a space on the shelf they have to fill with something (I joke, I joke).

Electronista has speculation that it'll cost around US$700 or less, which seems a little on the "hmm, I'll think about it" side of affordable -- but then it is a 4G tablet. Rather, it will be as soon as the part necessary to make it work on the 4G network becomes available.

Will this be the iPad-beater for which Motorola, presumably, is hoping? What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
