Samsung Vibrant is already listed on eBay ahead of its release
When it comes to snatching up some of the latest gear, one would think that eBay would probably be a good place to check out. Not only do they offer a decent listing of some popular released smartphones, but every now and then, you can find a rarity in an unreleased handset already taking bids. With less than a week before it's officially unleashed to the masses, the Samsung Vibrant is already up on eBay ready to be shipped out to the highest bidder. It's difficult to fathom how the seller managed to grab a handset, but we'd imagine that both T-Mobile and Samsung are wondering the same thing. So if you want to be literally the first on the block to sport this high powered Android smartphone, you'd better place your bid now that there is less than 4 hours left.

this really isnt news. you can always find phones on ebay before they officially release. the manufacturers usually give them away to employees for different reasons. last week a DROID X sold on ebay for about 1,300.. if you check ebay a week or two before the release you can always find people who have the phone before it is officially released by the carrier or manufacturer

How lame. After their released, who cares if you got yours a few days earlier? Not to mention paying up to 3+ times as much than even full retail pricing.
