Looks legitimate. However, if you look close you'll see that it's a QWERTZ keyboard not a QWERTY keyboard. Not only is it $900 but nobody in the US would be happy using it.

Wow...I would have never noticed the QWERTZ


So I'm assuming it did come out on T-mobile Germany?

I would imagine someone who is paying $900 for a BB isn;t going to use a marker on it.

You could probably by a replacement keyboard one they are available tho.

Nice eye JC! Never even saw that!

Someone already bought it. That was fast. But for only $ 477.00 U.S. And if you buy two, they're only $ 397.00. Seems too good to be true at that price. If it was a fellow member who got it, please post your results when it arrives.

It won't work. Any OS will load the same way. It can't be changed. Once a QWERTZ always a QWERTZ.

Default Ebay 9000 keyboard

It has been removed since the biding is over but the image that is displayed now is a qwerty.

If you look close at the pics in the link in the first post of this thread you'll see that the pic of the device in the box is a QWERTZ. The pic of the device by itself shows QWERTY. Looks like at least one of the pics is not of the actual device.

Devices from German carriers are QWERTZ....

It also mentions it will ship 10 days after payment, thats probs more then enough time to clear the paypal account before the buyer contacts paypal.

I saw this post b4 the item was sold, but as you say it seems to good to be true.
