Someone is selling an unopened first generation iPhone on eBay at a slight markup from its original price of $599: a mere $10,000.
The 8GB first generation iPhone is for sale from top-rated seller samsonbible, who describes the item as a “piece of history.”
“STUNNING RARE COLLECTORS CHOICE APPLE iPHONE 1ST GENERATION 8GB AND FACTORY SEALED..!!! YOU ARE SEEING A PIECE OF HISTORY..!!!! THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE COLLECTORS SHOW PIECE..!!!!

The phone, which Steve Jobs revealed to an audience on Jan. 9, 2007 and first went on sale June 29 of the same year, is now — at least according to this seller — a bonafide collector’s item.
