Late to preorder? No worries, the iPhone X is already being flipped at double the price

Just as we thought, anyone who wished to get an iPhone X come next Friday, will be able to do so... depending on the price they are willing to pay. In the few short hours since Apple's preorders went live, eBay was literally flooded with "any color, any carrier" offers, complete with screenshots of the order confirmation as a proof. 

Our top-notch favorite (pun intended) is the guy that is asking nearly three grand for his 256 GB silver model preorder, and is generously throwing in $125 shipping for all those poor chumps abroad that couldn't get through today. Sad, but true, now who's to bet we'll find a lot of iPhone X availability on Craigslist next Friday, too.

Has anyone else not figured out yet Apple's hype and propaganda machine yet? Come on, as if Apple doesn't want to sell you an iPhone that can't be delivered to you soon. Apple already has a list of their die hards which will praise and preach about Apple to anyone and everyone. Even if they have to wait for their delivery later on. Yet they can expedite delivery to those iPhone zealots that will sing and praise Apple, to spread the Apple word. Getting their preachers all singing the same Apple song. This is Apple money grab game.

Wait, was it Apple iPhone X 10? Then, there's iPhone Ten X again. And, iPhone X (ten). Also, iPhone Ten(X). People are seriously confused!

There are people out there who value even an hour of their time way more than $2k - it's hard to just call them dumb if they managed to reach that level of financial freedom. Of course I'm not talking about silver spoons and all of those who don't really own the money they spend on that second hand preorder. And those selling their time and effort put in getting that phone first are just clever enough to know that.

I'm sure this will still be a best seller regardless of that price.

Apple should artificially short-supply new iPhones every year. It gives us scalpers a nice chance to make 100% profits off of dumb fuq iSheep who are dying to pay double for a piece of sht iPhone just so they can feel like they have some kind of self worth. xD

Exactly. Flip them and don't buy their stuff...make them sit on their investments like idiots.

I'm flipping one. Who created this market? Apple! There is a high demand and limited supply. Thank you Apple!

3 grand ? Wow. I think I should start doing the same thing, standing in line on the launch day of an iPhone, grab it and put it on sale at eBay for a 100% profit... Great way to make quick cash.
