Gold Motorola Xoom tablets set for Oscars goodie bags

Limited-edition tablets for turning up to an awards bash? Oh, go on then

As if getting paid millions for pretending to be other people isn't enough for them, the nominees for the major Oscars are getting a limited-edition gold Motorola Xoom in their goodie bags.

Nominees and hosts for the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director awards are all receiving the gaudy tablets on Oscars night, 27 February.

The limited-edition gold Xooms will also come in a custom leather envelope case. Now, that bit actually sounds nice...
