No idea. But that's the first time I've heard of that one.

I believe a -1 would be a phone that has been debranded.
I believe the debranding allows you to change the vendor code.

What about those pre-production prototypes folks pay outrageous money for, and then risk getting them turned off by RIM? They might have funky vendor id's.
