[Worldwide]ideal condition N900 with reinforced (soldered) USB port for 180 / 230$
 
Recently, I've got access to three N900 in ideal condition, that I would like to land in hands of fellow Maemo users. I've personally reinforced (soldered down to motherboard) USB port in those devices, as per:
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=75920

Every device is used, but in very good+/ideal condition (protector foil on screen, intact keyboard, only small scratches on plastic body - if any... + mandatory "sliding" scratches on left and right from keyboard), and I've checked their technical side as thoroughly as I was able (Health-check for sensor readings, screen for bad pixels, etc etc) - everything seems fine.

To my best knowledge, they were never overclocked (seems to be owned by "lame" users - not reflashed before sale, some personal data left behind - that I've cleared, of course - no kernel-power or CSSU installed). All are revision 2101.

All standard accessory included, but only few first have box. All come from Polish distribution and are perfectly legal (IMEI not registered as stolen, and I've bought them from reliable supplier).

I'm willing to send them anywhere in the world, but buyer pays shipping costs.

If anyone is interested, please write here. I think it's good occasion, especially considering reinforced USB port.

// Edit

Layout is QWERTY with 4 arrows.

Ps.


// Edit

I'm almost not making money on selling them - I've only included small fee for soldering down USB port, and this "bonus" money is going to be spend as extra financing for my Aluminum black backcover(s) and body replacement for N900 project:

Standard qwerty means english layout with 4 arrow keys?

I already have a spare, but I do think about it. Especially from a trustful person.

Hopefully "standard" QWERTY means 4 arrow keys.

I made the "mistake" of buying a spare N900, after confirming it had a QWERTY keyboard, only to find it was the Spanish version (with 2 arrow keys). Oh well.

They should make a "black-edition" with no labels on the keys :)

I'm very interested into it mainly because I don't own any spare,
And there is still no recent devices that interess me.
IMO N900 is still the best phone you can get :)

Yes, it's QWERTY with 4 arrows (every device from Polish distribution was looking like that). Sorry for not mentioning it in first post - I'm updating it.

Funny that you could notice if wether someone has overclocked the device or not. :)

What have you picked up from mine? :o

It's possible to check (unclearable) number of times kernel was flashed. Of course, it doesn't matter that someone overclocked it or not, but many kernel flashes are most likely for power-users, or at least "wannabe" ones ;)

Although, I must admit, that I haven't gone so far - that's why I've written "to my best knowledge" - judging by device state. I think, that trying to determine "overclocked or not" is not feasible (and never 100% accurate).

As for second part of Your post - yea, very funny. I though about adding "disclaimer" to the first post "people that have sent me N900 for soldering down USB port or repair - don't worry, I'm *not* selling Your devices..." - but I though it isn't necessary ;)

Also, I though it's clear enough in first post, but to have everything straight&clear - those devices were *not* repaired by me on any way. I've just soldered down USB port to motherboard, which is considered best practice to prevent port breakage. Those devices *doesn't* have port repaired by using testpads, or anything like that.
