Optus announced the newest member of its tablet computing range last week, the Motorola Xoom, and its pricing plan for the tablet.

Australia's number two telco will sell the Xoom on either a 12-month Data Cap Plus plan with an upfront hardware cost, or a 24-month contract with subsidised payments spread out over each month of the contract.
