The $10,000 iPhone Will Look Familiar
In June 2007, I walked into my local AT&T store and bought my first iPhone. For $599, the handset included mobile Safari, a weak camera, and no App Store. Later, I sold my handset to a guy on eBay for $50. Five years later, two eBay sellers, Samsonbible and phsledge, each with a 100 percent feedback rating, are offering an unopened original iPhone for $10,000. Here is one of the listings:
STUNNING RARE COLLECTORS CHOICE APPLE iPHONE 1ST GENERATION 8GB AND FACTORY SEALED..!!! YOU ARE SEEING A PIECE OF HISTORY..!!!! THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE COLLECTORS SHOW PIECE..!!!! THIS WOULD BE A CROWN JEWEL FOR ANY COLLECTION..!!!! AMAZING FACTORY SEALED BOX..!!! UNOPENED AND THE COLLECTORS DREAM APPLE iPHONE..!!!!!! THIS IS OFFERED FOR A LIMITED TIME….. !!!!!!! HAPPY BIDDING…!!!![caption id="attachment_328279" align="aligncenter" width="640"] First iPhone[/caption] To date, neither listing has generated a bid. So, if you’re looking to buy a first-generation iPhone, and have $10,000, you’re in luck. Personally, I’d rather have the opportunity to buy a $299 sixth-generation iPhone. Do you hear me, Apple?
