Unlocked BlackBerry Z10 smartphones land on eBay, don't come cheap

Although the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone is already available in some markets, it won't be coming to the U.S. anytime soon, or at least not through a major carrier. That doesn't mean, however, that you can't own one right now, as long as you don't mind paying a hefty price for it.
Retail BlackBerry Z10 units are already available on eBay – unlocked and ready to work with a GSM carrier of your preference with support for LTE and all. But their pricing will surely make you think twice before hitting that blue button as bids currently stand at about $1000 and above.

This is the same for anything. If someone sells something on eBay before it's officially available or if there's limited availability at launch it's always extortionately priced. The PS3 was going for $3,000-5,000 at launch because it was hard to get.
