I'm not doubting that Verizon blocks certain apps. All carriers do. I'm just saying that the more common reasoning for the Xoom is what I stated previously, not carrier blocking. There are many developers that have their app listed twice (or more) for whatever reason. Sometimes it is for different TOC's depending on geographic reason, sometimes it is for compatibility issues, etc.

Heck, the web market doesn't show either version as compatible with the Xoom that is attached to my account. And only the $0.99 version is listed as compatible with my Nexus One.
I know its easy to blame the carriers for stuff like this. But I don't believe that is the case with most of the apps that are not showing in Market for Xoom owners.
