The Sidekick 2008 has been a source of rumor upon rumor, but they still aren’t available. Well, other than craigslist and now eBay. A reader let us know that there is now an auction for a Sidekick 2008 on eBay. Yes, that’s right, you can buy a ton of money for an unreleased device and get it early it seems. So far the bidding is up to $295, with a Buy-It-Now price of a dollar short of a grand. It’s actually getting some bids, so we’ll see what some lucky person scores an unreleased device for. The auction text explains that this is a Sidekick 2008 with 4 different shells, and that “You will never see a box like this again on limited edition where made”. (We think he means that it’s a limited edition Sidekick 2008 or something.) Some more pictures from the auction below:
UPDATE: We’re up to $400 with only 17hours to go!
UPDATE 2: Looks like someone dropped the $999 with the Buy-It-Now option. ouch
