    That's ebay's watermark. The eBay seller is the source of this pic. Obviously he/she didn't say it's a 9000 series and has no clue it seems yet many news sites choose to hint that.

    E.g of eBay watermark:

    The seller has great feedback (high numbers and does a lot of business) and the auction is up to $255, with only a few hours left..lot of buyers looking at this item.

    Anyone email the seller? I just sent them a "question", so we'll see if I get an answer.

    I think it is really the 9000 series. I repeat IS the 9000 series. Possibly stolen prototype. It is being sold in Grand Prairie, Texas. Aprox 8 miles away from RIM's Dallas (Irving) Offices.

    I could be wrong of course as well. I do suffer from Foot-In-Mouth disease quite often...lol

    Re: Alleged BlackBerry surfaces on ebay!

    Can anyone verify that RIM is doing away with the trackball? I went to phonescoop.com to compare pics of 8800 series, and there the trackball looks flat like the one for the supposed 9xxx series. So do we have any confirmation that there will be no more trackball? I love the trackball. As long as it doesn't go touch screen, I'll be happy.

    Does it look like the letter "B" is backwards at the top? I downloaded the JPEG and zoomed in.

    Instead of BlackBerry, it looks like Black"backwards B"erry.

    Hard to tell. If that's backwards, then this would be a fake. I am so confused....lol

    Re: Alleged BlackBerry surfaces on ebay!

    it could very well be a dummy phone of a new series comming soon. id love to bid on it. but its sold as-is.. and the phone wont power up. and hes using words like propbably. and maybe. why would ya pay 300 or more for a plastic phone that wont work. its nice looking but im not trusting it at the moment
