    as mentioned earlier. The battery... an issue. These new photos, esp the rear with back cover removed adds question marks for this device. Don't know what this...

    hmm thats a good point...

    It probably died after the eBay seller saw our comments and knows they are selling something that isn't worth selling and they are not providing all of the details they need to provide. Posting those pics sunk their ship for those who viewed them.

    Re: Alleged BlackBerry surfaces on ebay!

    Not sure if it's coincidence but the new pics were removed right after I posted this:
    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...3&postcount=91

    I saved the pics to forward to RIM but will not post from PS servers as source. Anyone else can repost if they like though. However, I'm beginning to smell a fake here.

    NOTE: I don't think the seller knows this device very well and/or it's origin (may be wrong). I am in NO WAY claiming that if this is a fake, that it's intentionally being sold as a Blackberry. From the ebay feedback, as a seller he/she seems VERY legit.

    Also note the seller's honesty when stating as mentioned in my original post:

    "
    Phone will not power up, however the LCD (and probably many
    other parts) are still good. Sold AS IS. We are not sure what model this is"

    Re: Alleged BlackBerry surfaces on ebay!

    Yea I think it looks like an ok Chinese knock off again with the back off, possibly a recased Windows Mobile knock off.

    Then again I have no real idea thanks for posting the pics.

    That hand writen number under the camera could be its PIN number.

    I read 20678a11 or 20678aa1

    This would make the prototype argument a little stronger.

    Re: Alleged BlackBerry surfaces on ebay!

    The eBay listing has been removed! Why??? Did RIM contact the seller? Was the auction a fake, just to see what would be said about a prototype? Was it just a way to entertain the BrackBerry Addicts...?
