It's not unusual for prototype devices to find their way out in to the big wide world, but the latest is of particular interest to iPhone nerds. An apparent early prototype of the very first iPhone has just been sold on eBay for $1499 and is running an internal diagnostic software build:
While the authenticity of the device hasn't been confirmed, it's a little surprising it wasn't removed from the auction site has others have been in the past. But, someone has parted with a bunch of cash to pick it up, so maybe we'll hear more about this nerdtastic device more in the weeks ahead.

I still have my 8GB first gen iPhone. It still works, powers on and has the Jailbroken unlocked OS. It's too bad I gave it to like four family members at different times so it went from mint condition to cracked, dinged and bejewelled :(
