madbrendan, 05 Jul 2011why the hell would you want a prototype? god i hate apple users sometimes...Please read the article, the phone does not even work. Obviously the person buying would be a collector of sorts, and not a typical phone user. Collectors are a different breed of people, and no point including in flame wars.
Old comic books are bought for thousands of dollars. Obviously wasn't bought to be read and thrown in thrash right?
Please consider the context of the story before commenting.
Isn't this suppose to be the iphone 5 prototype.. why would someone want iphone 4 which is already out.
4v, 05 Jul 2011still ugly. when do they understand, that design is obsolete and so much unused space above th... moreunused space??? it is very useful when u play racing game LOL!! no one wins apple over design and built quality and os
well another silly story. yes we know the iphone 4 is the best phone of the planet. bt certainly not worth that amount of money.
if its really a prototype.
still ugly. when do they understand, that design is obsolete and so much unused space above the screen isn't sexy, but distasteful??
the auctn wz waz mayb by apple r som othr fan of apple coz peopl love to see their fav brand names and devices in big amounts
[deleted post]You guys bought a handset that doesn't even have a working antenna and accept that a cheap chinese 2 dollar bumper case is a good solution for your brand new 600 dollar phone to even work. Just becasue Apple told you to do it. And i'm the one that's dumb? Jeeez louise...

Anonymous, 04 Jul 2011The evil Apple is paying the bill and get free advertisement Exactly my thought!
Apple's marketing team put it up, Apple's marketing team auctioned it for $999.999, all world's press talks big about it and now Apple's legal team will prevent this from getting thru and there you go Apple's marketing 101.
This is how it's done!
Free advertising FTW!
why on gods earth would you want a prototype nevermind a proper working iphone.Some people are just plain dumb.
The listing has been removed...seems Apple finally stepped in...:D
some of these comments are really stupid. It is pretty obvious that it is just some a**holes who are bidding and have no intention of buying or ayig. I mean even i could go there and place a bid for 999,999,999,999$ Not like i am gonna buy it.
hahahahah i can make this thing work easily ! REALLY EASY ! hahahahahah
