Get your Motorola Droid quicker, thanks to eBay
Based on our last report, the Motorola Droid is expected to launch on November 9th by Verizon. If you're the type that has to have everything NOW, you do have an opportunity to get the Android powered handset sooner. At eBay, someone has up for auction a brand new Droid handset in the box, brand new. The last bid was $899.99 and the phone is sent without a contract and shipping is free. An 8GB MicroSD card is included. The auction ends October 29th and the Droid is sent from Glendale, California. Now how badly do you want to show off your Droid before anyone else has it?

Right, what idiot would pay $900, just wait a week or 2 and get it from Verizon for a way cheaper price.... Plus I thought the droid was coming with a 16GB card, why does the Eday listing say 8GB?

Either that is BGR's eBay account or someone is using one of his pictures from his hands on review

Lol, phonearena. The 11.09 card means November 2009, not nov 9th lolololol. 2 If you look at the ending date, it's the 29th... the day AFTER people speculate the Droid might go on sale via internet portals. This guy doesn't have a Droid on hand, he's just hoping to make some profit by buying an unsubsidized phone for $600 and making at least $300 profit. Chances are the Droid won't come out on the 28th and this guy is screwed! LOL!

ummmm... no you dont. you call a number and the ESN is not yet listed so it cannot be activated until the day of launch. but its okay you dont know, just dont pretend you do.

$900! What a joke. Why would anyone pay that much money for a phone. I saw the blackberry Storm for sale at for $300. Now that's more like it.
