iPhone meets eBay

If you can't wait until late June and the Federal Communications Commission's message in small print on the iPhone website doesn't bother you ("This device has not been authorized as required by the rules of the Federal Communications Commission. This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained."), you will be interested that several eBay sellers are already offering the expensive device up for grabs. The 4GB and 8GB versions are meant to go on sale at $499 and $599, respectively. However, paying double is perfectly normal on the online auction site. EBay's policies on pre-sale listings emphasize a 30 day shipping time from the date of purchase, but some auctions advertise 30 days from the beginning of the auctions. The auctions are getting pulled as fast as they are being put up, but some successful ones have already finished: $925.00 USD anyone?

...You ARE joking, right?

not really. i give props to these ebay guys who have found a nitch selling exorbitantly priced devices to complete idiots.

anyone who pays that much for a phone should be shot... u gotta be sick rich to shell out roughly 800-1000 dollars for a damn phone! ... it's a fricking "phone" people! lol.

but then again if i was selling it and making double what i paid for it... i dont think i would be complaining ;)

but either way those phones will probably sell alot just cause of the established name brand they did with the ipod's.

Yeah it is just a phone in the end of the day. This is probably worse than some of those stupid PS3 auctions that went on.

Nah, the iPhone still does the phone thing pretty well I'm guessing. I'm still not sure the PS3 was REALLY meant to play games, just get Blu-Ray into people's homes.

It's little surprise, but has anyone actually held one of these hot little babes in their hands that's won them off eBay yet? Let me know when that happens. It could just be like the auction debacles (remember that lady who won a picture of a PS2?) we've seen in the past.

Let's see some photos!
