Default 8900 with 12MP Camera & Touch Screen

Please Login to Remove!

I saw this on eBay, it looks to be a "TV" edition. In the pictures it says 12MP, and under description is says touch screen.

New Curve Black WIFI TV Mobile Phone 8900 Unlocked GSM - eBay (item 170396092801 end time Nov-17-09 07:07:24 PST)

Its odd.

Wow.

I can't believe I didn't pick up on that. I did find it bizarre that the blackberry menu was just black.

AH!!!, I can't believe I fell for it.

TF = TransFlash. I think it's what microSD was called originally.
