    Yes it is, the devices are the property of Research In Motion.

    There have already been a couple sold on Ebay for about $700. I don't think RIM will do much about it though. The not for resale is there just to cover their ass.

    Maybe not illegal, but definitely unethical. On the other hand, a $1000 could maybe get me two BB10's.......
    BB then, now, forever!

    Yea, don't understand why one would spend a Grand on a device that will be obsolete, other than they are just a hardcore collector.

    I think its up to us as a community to get the word out to potential buyers who may not have a clue that these devices are crippled and will be paperweights in about a month. Most of the listings I've seen are misleading, and a few outright lying about the device. PSA's, anyone? I know I'm running one on the QuickBerry Podcast on Monday. Besides, the Special Edition BB10 device will be waaaaaaay more collectable.
