Hey Coop...just not feeling the love. It's too convenient that you work just several hundred metres from RIM in Waterloo and some guy was using the device and it shows up on Ebay this morning.

Well,

I guess I should expect a little flack. I have never bothered posting before as I'd actually forgotten about even having an account here.

I don't typically get too much information from people who work there as they do put their job in jeopardy by revealing any information.

I don't expect anyone to believe me, but I'm just throwing out some information I have been given from what I consider reliable sources.

As far as the photo is concerned. It's not mine, I don't know the person who put it up and the e-bay auction is in Texas, not here in Waterloo.

So I don't know if it's real, but it's at least an interesting thing to look at, take it as you wish

I've tried to get the ebayer to send some more detailed photos, but I dont think they're going to even reply.

that is the most unfinished back of a phone I have ever seen

That phone just doesn't strike me to well. Doesn't look to me to be RIM quality. this may be legit but I have my suspicions

If it is legit I will stick with the 8800 I do not like the looks at all

I thought I had the link... a couple of the websites had posted them as updates.

I'm a little disappointed that websites are stating the image was taken in Waterloo...

I will clarify;

It was being sold by a 3rd party in Texas who probably have links to someone at their RIM office there.

I can say that this is at least a new device to be released, having seen this actual device being used in Waterloo.

So much for my wishful thinking. That this was a CDMA Curve. Looks like Cooper might be right after all. :(
