Kindle offered on eBay!

And for a *mere* $499!!! But of course you're only guaranteed to be 'one of the first' to receive it...

There was another one up that didn't sell. Of course the seller had 0 feedback and wanted $599 for it so I'm not entirely surprised. I think it's all a bit premature, anyway. It's not sold out that far in advance. Now if it gets to the point it's sold out until after Christmas, they may get some interest. Most people are not going to pay $100 extra to get it a few weeks earlier. It's not ubertrendy like the iPhone.

That's strange, I just had a look to see if there were any available, but couldn't find any!
Can you give me the link please?

Here you go. But I wouldn't buy, as the price is too high.

May they have a fun time waiting for their toy!

If and when I buy a Kindle, (Yes, I know I am a corporate officer of NAEB and committed to marketing Bookeen's Cybook.) I will buy it straight from Amazon. (Hopefully, the dollar won't have collapsed *too far* by then. )

When the Kindle kept selling out, I knew this would happen. The Kindle is the hot gift this Christmas season.

In all honesty, I didn't think the Kindle would sellout.

Yikes. The bid is currently at $710, and it's still shy of the reserve price. What happened to rational spending?

Ebay has many fakes and fake bids. I got $5,000 for a 2 year old Sony laptop. Too bad it was a fake.

Yikes! $810 and reserve not met. I wonder what the reserve is. I'm surprised it's this high even being sold out at Amazon.

Separate $999 Buy It Now auctions... that were successful. Perhaps these are fake bids, perhaps not. Could this be the beginning? Despite what the media proclaims, our economy might not be heading down a gutter, yet.
