Verizon Wireless has finally announced the subsidized price with a service contract for the Motorola Xoom tablet.

Set to ship and show up in stores on February 24, the 3G/4G version of the Xoom will be available for $599.99 with the signing of a two-year service agreement. 3G service also starts at $20 per month for 1GB of data. The 4G LTE service upgrade, which will be available during the second quarter, will come as a freebie. Yet, don't expect the 4G data plans to be on par with the 3G rates.

Verizon has already revealed that the 3G version would be available without a contract for $799.99, and a Wi-Fi only Xoom will cost $600. There is no mention of a subsidized Wi-Fi only Xoom at this time as there is no need for that.
