The Motorola XOOM tablet comes in two versions. You can pick up a 3G capable version today, or wait a few days and grab a WiFi-only version. Verizon Wireless offers the 3G model (with a 4G upgrade coming soon), but wireless carrier Cellular South is taking a different approach. The regional carrier will offer a WiFi version of the tablet soon, along with a MiFi personal hotspot which you can use to get online when you’re away from a WiFi network.

That’s actually the same approach Verizon took with the original iPad, back when Apple wasn’t offering a version that was compatible with Verizon’s 3G network.

There’s no word on how much Cellular South will charge for the tablet, but $599 seems to be the going rate.

The Motorola XOOM features a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, 32GB of storage, and Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb operating system. It has front and rear cameras and supports Adobe Flash.
