Overpriced? Sure it is! While some European countries are selling the Bold 9000 for 300-400 EUR, it looks like some (un)lucky RIM fan got his BlackBerry got his Bold unit for $1025 on eBay.
Let’s go back in time and remember that this handset was announced in May, this year. It works on 2G networks (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) and 3G (HSDPA 850/1900/2100) as well, plus it comes with a 480 x 320 pixels display, microSD/microSDHC support (up to 8GB) and a 624 MHz processor. BlackBerry Bold’s specs list also includes 1GB storage memory and 128MB flash memory.
BlackBerry OS is as usual included, plus a 2 megapixel camera, BlackBerry Maps, a GPS, a media player and a neat Li-ion battery (1500 mAh), which can keep the handset alive for 310 hours in standby mode and up to 5 hours in talk mode. I, for one would like to see the face of those bidders, knowing that they probably paid double the amount they should for BlackBerry Bold.
