selling 4x Nokia N950 (1 new, 3 broken LCD)
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello everyone,

I'm selling a few of my devices. One of them is N950 "RM690" described here: https://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=96972
- device is in excellent condition, almost no usage. Comes with original box.

Ebay listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/132632438888


And three other N950's are "for parts only" - they are working well but their displays are broken (LCD has black spot leaks, see example in attachment) because I've dropped the phones several times (thus both devices have sign of wear - scratches, scuffs, etc).

Ebay listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/132633424172


Accepted payments (most to least preferred): Visa-Visa or MC-MC direct transfer, PayPal, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Western Union or MoneyGram.

Pity about the screens on the n950's....

One of "parts only" n950's has almost excellent body except that it has no SIM card slot protector (because its rubber part teared down over time). Another n950 has a lot of scratches and scuffs, the camera screen is broken (and has a drop of glue to prevent it from falling away) and it has no SIM card slot protector too.
Also most rubber pads dissolved over time, in all three n950's. See attachments below.

"RM-690" comes with the CA-179 USB cable in box. Also I have one extra CA-179 and CA-101 cables which I could sell with other n950's.
Also I have the "BV-4D 1320 mAh" battery which I could also sell.
However there is a high chance that claimed capacity is fake and BV-4D has 1200 mAh real capacity like the standard BL-4D. I have no possibility to check its real capacity.

All n950's come with PR 1.3 version.
One of "parts only" has stock Harmattan OS, another has bootloader left from unsuccessful Nemo OS installation and the "open mode warning", but the Harmattan OS works well.

1st n950 has almost excellent body except the broken screen (see black spot at the bottom and small line on the right side), so I did not make many photos of the 1st "parts only" phone.

I'll bid $301 on the GPD to start things off.

As I see no interest in these items here I will post listings on Ebay in 2 weeks.

this is so expensive, n950 should be sold max around $150 or less.

Historically that has not been the case. It's worth more to those that covet that device or might develop on that device - or both.

But who am I to say anything otherwise?

abubakar and gerbick are both right.

On the one hand...what is being asked for a functional n950 and serious repair-job and parts replacements n950's ...is a very steep price.
perhaps years ago it may have commanded that price...but now...I don't think so...
for years I have seen the prices for nxx0's fluctuate...up and down...
Nowadays ...it is just ridiculous ...
for example...
right now ...there are n800's on ebay
starting at a bid of $1
buy it now's from $20 up to $227

n810's for up to $494 ....NOT including the $65 in shipping...

and n900's I have also seen all over the map.

So abubakar and gerbick are both correct...

the value inherent in the devices ...
(even as a coveted device that a collector or developer or even a die-hard user drools over...)..
and what people ask for on the auction block and sale sites...
is not in line with reality.
Some devices I have seen for sale... the owners are obviously asking too little ...
Some devices I have seen for sale...the owners are obviously asking too much...

Frankly...
currently...
It is the wild west ...
With no proper credible valuation in place on our device line.
