Now that the Motorola Xoom tablet is finally available to purchase, it's time for the special limited edition version to make a star-studded debut.

The first device to ship with Android 3.0 is getting a special gold exterior with a custom leather envelope case. This limited edition Xoom is set to be one of the many gifts found in the swag bags of the hosts of the Oscars, along with the winners for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director.

But that doesn't mean you can't have one either. Motorola is hosting a contest via Twitter that begins today and runs through February 28.

The complete lowdown on the contest rules and requirements can be found here, but basically you have to follow "@motorola" and re-tweet (you know, "RT") specific tweets, including the hash tag "#motoxoom." Each time you re-tweet, that counts as an entry. It sounds rather complicated and even time consuming, but hey, it could save you $799 and get you a free shiny tablet powered by Honeycomb for free!
