Geeks are an interesting lot. We all want to be the first to get our hands on things no matter if you are a car geek, a game geek, or a gadget geek. Being first is cool, unless the first release of something has big issues, and then things aren’t so cool. A new smartphone is coming this month for T-Mobile called the LG G2X.
The dual-core Tegra 2/4G phone will hit around April 15th, but someone managed to get hands on the smartphone before the official launch. How exactly the smartphone came to be in the person’s possession early is unknown. What we do know is that like any geek with something cool and early that they really don’t want for themselves, the owner hit eBay and put the smartphone up for auction.
The Buy-it-Now price was set at $999 (USD). No one bit at that price tag, but the auction did end with the smartphone fetching $799. That is still way more than I would ever pay for any phone. I would assume like most phones it will sell for $199 on contract when it lands in stores in a week or so.
