    You Can Grab the Star-Studded Gold Motorola XOOM on eBay Now?



    Remember those exclusive gold Motorola XOOM tablets being handed out as free shwag for the hosts and top nominees at this years Oscars? You donít even have to be a star to own one now. The gold XOOM and its exclusive leather case are up for auction with a Buy It Now pricing of $1,750.

    Weíre not exactly sure if the gold deco is worth well over twice the price of the standard version (most complained about having to spend even $600 on the the Honeycomb tablet), but someone out there will surely want one. Now the question is which celebrity once owned this gold XOOM and decided to part ways with it. The auctioneer claims to be sworn to secrecy, but the price might be better justified if it came with the autograph of James Franco or Natalie Portman.

    No reserve met at $755 with less than 24hours left... I'd only get it if I could take the gold off and melt it down (that's the only reason they're asking so much, right? If it's fake, someone's gonna get jipped).

    And yet another reason why the Xoom's were so much in the first place... Moto was giving them away to celebrities! The celebs didn't buy them probably because they too thought $800 was too much haha

    That was Motorolas original model but after countless advertising meetings they finally concluded that users would not buy a gold studded tablet and went on to the next issue. Making the xooms at retail stores as hidden as possible from potential customers.
