What About the Xoom?

9:40 AM -- The Twitter-verse is abuzz with speculation that Verizon Wireless 's first LTE smartphone -- the High Tech Computer Corp. (HTC) (Taiwan: 2498) Thunderbolt -- is delayed. (See Verizon's First LTE Phone Delayed?)

There is, however, another interesting detail in the memo posted by Droid Life. "There has been a delay with the creative for the Motorola Xoom," the document, which has supposedly been sent from Verizon to its retail outlets, states.

Now, my guess is that means that the advertising materials around the first Motorola LTE tablet are behind schedule. That, however, is pure speculation on my part.

I do wonder what this all means for the launch of the tablet, though. Of course it is entirely possible that Verizon is too busy with online sales of its CDMA iPhone to worry much about LTE today.
