    After three years of planning and pumping vital resources into Project Purple, the original iPhone was eventually released to the world during the Macworld convention in June of 2007, and the rest as they say is history. If you fell into the iPhone game at a later date and never managed to experience the device that paved the way for greatness, then you’re in luck as a rather enterprising eBay member is selling his original and unopened iPhone for a bargain price of, wait for it… $10,000.

    The eBay page doesn’t really give a lot of information about the device, instead choosing to allow the auction site to handle the intricacies with their generic product information. The seller has chosen to add a few of their own carefully crafted sentences in the hope of convincing us to part with our hard-earned pennies, such as describing the device as a “stunning rare collectors choice†and that by witnessing this auction we are “seeing a piece of history“. Regardless of the copious amounts of cheese applied to the listing and the over-exuberant use of the exclamation marks, the fact does remain that a large portion of us would love to get our hands on that item.

    So a collector wouldn't open the box?

    It would be funny if they just put a rock in there and no phone.
