    They might have removed the listing but methinks that someone will contact him via a question on eBay and sell it anyway and avoid those pesky eBay fees and Paypal fees.
    Anyway at least we know now for sure what the new one will look like.
    My signiture? Whats that...............

    poeple are retarded now-a-days.

    im sure i could find a theme somewhere to transform my iphone to look like its a **EDIT CPJR - Watch the language** oldschool colored apple newton.
    why pay 2000$ for a **Profanity = NO** prototype when the 3g works better, looks better, and is only a 100bucks.

    correction: 700 bucks without a contract for a sixteen gig, whether it be brand new or used. i got mine for two hundred and a hacked PSP...

    having a beta could mean NEW developments in the iPhone scene... maybe some new stuff we never thought of. i like that control panel at the end i think it kicks more *** than SBSettings.

    ops, i hit thanx instead of quote. cuz u don't deserve one.

    this has nothing to do with what else is out there. its a prototype. no one who buys it will ever really get it working. as other's said, this is like a museum piece. think about all those prototype cars sitting in museums, that people bought. or concept cars which get auctioned off. same thing here.

    guess u r right, people are retarded, probably starting with you and your thick headness.

    now personally, its cool but i'd never spent my money on it. just not worth it for me. but i can see why you would want to have it, if you are into that sorta thing.

    Well Brooklyn8 (from MacRumors) has loaned the working prototype to planetbeing so that he can get the firmware and bootloaders etc. off the phone. So now you guys MIGHT be able to run beta firmwares on your phones. REMEMBER MIGHT!

    EDIT: The firmware been posted on MR...

    look! at the end of the video! (which is back up btw), it comes with bossprefs! hehe

    also i lol'ed at the text at the beginning of the video about posting it over and over and the subsequent "f*ck you apple!"

    and you know everyone over at apple is pissed because those with 9" iTablet prototypes, just had them taken away over this story.

    Plus, in the right hands, someone could dump the firmware off the flash and there may be exploits that haven't even been realised yet that would be applicable to current firmware.

    this is basically the iphone 1st gen hardware with a prototype OS, yes? If people spend money on this I simply laugh.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    The serial number proves that it was made weeks or months before the phone was released or annunced, not sure which...

    Quite disturbing.

    Also, dont believe dates from files earlier than 2006. The earliest one Ive seen was sometime in September '06, but Im sure the actual phone (not software) was being developed much earlier...
