• BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Sells For $1000 On eBay - More Starting To Show Up


    While the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha devices are great tools for developers as well as a nice collectors item, could you see yourself paying $1000 for the device? That's exactly what an eBay user paid as a "Buy It Now" price. Also, another Dev Alpha sold for $900 as well.

    Buyer beware, these devices may have the "end of life" built into the OS. If you remember, we saw the "end of life" plague previous OS builds last October. So unless these buyers are just extreme BB device collectors, they are going to most likely have a very expensive paper weight. I doubt they understand that.

    We most likely will see more Dev Alpha devices pop up on eBay in the coming weeks leading up to the BlackBerry 10 launch on Jan 30th. Devs that aren't going to be trading in their Dev Alpha device's for a Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 device, will most likely be in a hurry to sell.

    Even though the devices are clearly marked that they are "property of RIM" and "not for resale," I doubt RIM would do anything about these devices being sold. Those are just warnings to cover their own ass if someone decides they want to sue RIM because they were a sucker and paid a grand for the device. But I suppose if RIM wanted to get all legal on someone for selling the device, they could.

    How much would you pay for a BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha?
