Looks like he's a legit seller and has sold phones before.

the price isnt that bad.
$800 can buy you a 8800 and a spare battery where i am.

i would tip that this is cheaper than the retail 9000, the stuff on the inside however might vary slightly ;)

imho its at a pretty good price point if you love to early adopt.

hmm...i don't know about that. Since pricing and such for it only has speculation and predictions. it could be way less than what we think. but who knows

It looks like this is legit and has 2 available for sales + good history to back this up.

I was offered well over 5 grand f I could get my hands on the first pearl (8100)I saw. It didnt release for another 5 or 6 months. But I got to play with it because I a guy I built a house for works for RIM. I couldn't ever catch him at home to ask him about the deal. I stood to make a nice chunk of change by just being the middle man. So people who have liquid cash will pay anything for a device or gadget that no one else has.

keep in mind that even if this device is legit, its internals may/will vary from the final retail version, even though indications that its an engineer/pre-production markings are no where to be found.

If this sucker works with my t-mobile account then I'll buy.

What are the chances? C'mon jibi, you must know what's what!
