File this one under "hilarious." We, at BlackBerryOS, love a good joke. Unfortunately for someone that'll have to pony up the cash, the following story is not a joke but still very funny. Ebay user "hillcrestbunch" has put up a drawing of a 16GB HP TouchPad for auction which has, till now, a winning bid of $99,900. That's not a typo. Ninety-nine thousand, nine-hundred dollars. If you're wondering if this drawing has anything special about it; fear not, it doesn't. The following description was provided for the drawing:
You are bidding on an awful drawing of an HP Touchpad. I'm posting this because I see idiots bidding $300 on $99 tablets, and $850 on a $99 tablet running Android--so I figured maybe someone would be dumb enough to bid on my drawing. Hell, if this sells for over $800, I'll draw you another one with Android on it AT NO EXTRA COST!
Sure, I'll admit it: I want a Touchpad, but I'm not spending over $150 on one. Yeah, I hang out on Slick Deal's 1500+ page forum AS A GUEST looking to snag a deal--go ahead, hate me. But only AFTER bidding on this.
This was drawn on a regular sized sheet of white paper. The drawing is in BLUE pen!--my (and likely your) favorite color. This weighs less than an actual touchpad, is flexible, and is 1/1--you can sleep well at night knowing that you're different than the thousands of others who got a "real" touchpad. It can also be viewed as a drawing of a 16 or 32 gb one.
And finally, this touchpad drawing is of the rare WHITE one.
Shipping on this is free. It'll be shipped in a padded envelope.
RETURNS NOT ACCEPTED. Feel free to contact me with questions.
If that doesn't make you laugh, I don't know what will. Hopefully none of our BlackBerry users have made a bid on this item; and if you have, please tell us why. The Q&A section is hilarious so be sure to check that out as well. This definitely has me wondering how much I could get for a drawing of a BlackBerry Bold 9900. I'd take half of that easily!
