As a friend of mine would say, holy crap-moley! We’ve got a little tale of rich and obsessed BlackBerry fans for you — spread over two different new models, no less. First up is the BlackBerry Bold, via Boy Genius Report. You know, that device that’s made us tap our foot and glance at our watch. Turns out, some guy in New York got his hands on five bolds, and unloaded them for $1,299.99. His name, as described by BGR, is “Joe at BlackBerry Business,” which sounds like a radio-show caller. They are sold out now, though I’m not sure anyone reading this is particularly disappointed. I mean, thirteen-hundred dollars! Pic of the listing, and another expensive listing, after the jump.
Next, via BlackBerry News we get the results of a pre-release Pearl 8220 on eBay. It sold for $1,725.00. I am speechless. I only hope this doesn’t turn out like Kevin’s episode with the pre-release Bold. Not that it was bad — he got an exclusive review just before the announcement at WES. But ask him if it works right now. In any case, congratulations to the winner.
