The silence is deafening.  How come nobody is talking about this great blue AE 40 on ebay?

That red one has been for sale for a long time.  I'm surprised it hasn't sold.  The BIN is not that outrageous considering what these have been selling for lately.  The blue one will sell for big bucks, with these two bidders battling it out.

Such phones are way out of my price range.  I imagine I'm not the only one who feels that way.  There must be at least two others on this forum who feel the same way.

Seems one of the two bidders, i***n ( 274 ) placed a very high early bid. d***s ( 414 ) has been trying to expose the top end since then with no luck. With only two bidders, the question is how big was that first bid and will d***s expose it only to be raised once more by i***n. A bit of a cat and mouse game at this point with the winner being the one who wants it the most.

How about a short, fast contest?

Eh, just another blue AE 40.  Let the high rollers fight over it.
