Remember those exclusive gold Motorola XOOM tablets being handed out as free shwag for the hosts and top nominees at this years Oscars? You don’t 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.

We’re 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.
