Cheeky BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 goes for £900 on eBay

Cheeky BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 goes for £900 on eBayFresh off the heels of yesterday’s story about the iPhone 4 prototype auction, we’ve got yet another decidedly dodgy handset making an appearance on eBay.

This time it’s the all-new BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900, not expected to arrive on shelves till Mid-September, or thereabouts.

Unlike the seller with the prototype iPhone 4, this guy doesn’t explain how he got his hands on the phone. However, amusingly, he lists the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900’s “Country of Origon” [sic] as “Canada (Blackberry HQ)”.

The auction finished yesterday, with the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 going for the Buy It Now price of £900. Cripes. And without warranty, too.

The Bold Touch 9900 runs the eagerly-anticipated BlackBerry OS 7, with a 2.8in touchscreen, full QWERTY, 5MP camera, 8GB internal storage, and a 1.2GHz processor.

Amazon reckons the black model will arrive on 15 September, priced £549.99, with the white model landing a month later.

whoa... Why not £600? Or an even 1000?
The Nokia E6 is 349...EURO! That's almost 40% less (precoffee and no calculator...pffft).
On the strength of BBM alone how are they gonna shift large numbers at that price?
