Sony Ericsson Windows Phone prototype ends up on eBay
Remember that Sony Ericsson Windows Phone prototype, images of which leaked on the webs several times? Now you can own it. Yes, seriously. There is one available on eBay right now, and the current bid stands at $255. 

Hardware specs are scarce, but the listing mentions that the device sports an 8.1-megapixel camera and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Furthermore, its Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G radios should work, if the listing is to be believed. However, it isn't exactly clear whether this Sony Ericsson prototype has been updated to Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.

Most importantly, the seller claims that the smartphone works, although we doubt that it would be free of glitches. That said, it would probably not be a good idea to use it as your main device, but if you want to impress your geeky friends, or if you simply feel like owning a handset that nobody else has, you might check this one out. The listing for this Sony Ericsson Windows Phone prototype handset is available at the source link below.

It looks like it's Launcher7 not an actual WP7 handset. I can tell by the Internet Explorer tile but that's just what I think. Any ideas anyone?

I get what you're trying to say but you can tell obviously that it's a Windows Phone by the capacitive buttons on the phone, which are Windows.

The internet explorer tile is wrong just like Muhannad said but also the xbox live tile is wrong too.

the person who gets ripped on this one is going to be one sad panda

The IE tile is actually just a white low case e and what every color is your main color in this it would be blue. The Xbox live tile is actually Lime green with white letters regardless what theme choose or main color.

if its legit i would expect a "sony" not "sony ericsson". but idk, maybe the prototype was made before sony took over.
