Motorola Xoom goes gold for Oscar stars

Getting a seat at one of the most exclusive awards ceremonies in the world isn’t enough for some people. (And we’re not talking about The Appys.)

Motorola have announced that they’ve made several limited edition gold Motorola Xooms especially for hosts and nominees at this year’s Oscars.

One of our tablets to watch, a gold-plated Xoom will be on its way to nominees for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director- and the hosts.


The Motorola Xoom looks like it could be the first Honeycomb tablet to reach UK, with dual-core processing, and designed-for-tablet Android 3.0 goodies. The 10.1-inch touchscreen supports up to 10 inputs (matching the number of fingers we have- clever), in addition to full HD video, dual cameras and HDMI out.

There’s also 32GB of internal storage- hopefully enough to store all those nominated films and Oscar-winning performances. We’re still waiting for our gold-plated test model to arrive here.
