BlackBerry Javelin shows its face on eBay

BlackBerry Javelin shows its face on eBay
The recently rumored BlackBerry Javelin has shown its face on eBay, and with bidding at $4,056.99, is quite high. Unlike many of the hoaxes that appear on eBay regularly, this auction appears to be legitimate, and is offered by a seller with a 99.5 percent approval rating. In addition to the positive marks, the auction provides photos that appear to be genuine. The phone, unannounced by Research In Motion, has seen a following among the internet phone community. According to the eBay auction, the phone offers a 512 MHz processor, hot-swappable microSD slot - located under the battery door, 480 by 360 high-res HVGA+ display, 3.2 megapixel camera and Micro USB charging/syncing port, with high speed data. The Canada-based auctioneer is offering international shipping, although the winning bidder must initiate contact after the auction to determine exact costs.

From what insiders say, the video is an older build. Plus.... are you going to take the word of a kid with a bandanna around his mouth? "Uhhhh and uhhh I don't like it" I rather wait and see for myself when the real device launches because not only is the Storm garbage but the Bold is garbage. Supposely a Bold will make it's way to VZW next year. AT&T hasnt even released theirs yet, (because it's garbage) so there will be a exclusivity time for them.

RIM has never release a BB with a touchscreen. What drugs are you taking? Do you believe everything people say? If someone told you college was a joke would you automaticly go with their opinion and continue flipping burgers? Jesus.

This isn't worth 4000 bucks. Besides, if RIM figures it out, they'll turn the device 'off' remotely.

8. unregistered

no they wont. they didnt when the bold was sold before the launch date, or the kickstart.

13. unregistered

as soon the device become commercially available RIM kills all the PINs on the pre-release phones.

The Bold for Verizon will be named the Storm 9350, and the box picture is already online, type "BlackBerry Storm Gets Boxed" on Google. That Javelin for sale on eBay, however, is a preproduction unit, and in Canada. There are now 3 of 'em on the 'Bay, and one says that the seller got it off a friend working at RIM. The Storm for Verizon will be out around the end of September :)

Wow.... you are way off. The Bold for Verizon is codenames Niagara. The Storm is a Touchscreen phone to compete with the iphone it will be on Verizon, Vodafone and some other Canadian carriers. Bold 3G QWERTY with Camera, Storm Global Touchscreen with Camera.
