TORONTO KIJIJI!?!?
Well then you missed picking up a 2nd and I missed grabbing 2 at that kind of price !!!
There was one on ebay...perhaps the same fellow... something like 20-25$ ...it just went yesterday or day before.. I believe.
It was mentioned it was overclocked and supposedly half or completely dead. Was pretty close to hitting the bid button...but didn't.
I never knew of the kijiji one.
Well and Well.

It's not without risk though... For all I knew, this N900 was dead. Then again, it's a Nokia so how dead can any of them be?

Another N900 I have was chewed by a dog, and the owner forgot the PIN. The LCD was cracked, the digitizer has bite marks in it. Replaced the LCD but not the digitizer, reflashed, works like new.

But I seriously have NO need for this many of them.

I have one N9.

Does that count as a collection?

Ha! Even the dog knew the value of one and wanted a n900 as his own toy!
they do take a lickin'
Now you have enough of them to put almost every running os (hmmm maybe you might need a few more actually ) on each n900.

Well ....if you ever think of selling one keep me in mind...wouldn't mind havin a back-up beater.

Oh hell why not...the n9 can do a raft full-o things so why not count it as a multiple.

I searched for a used N900 after reading that last week, got in touch with the seller but the deal didn't push through because she wasn't able to answer my questions.
I still got the itch and I'm thinking about getting it tomorrow.

At least in Toronto, N900s are not that difficult to find. There's maybe one for sale every few weeks, ranging in price from $20 for a non functional one to about $100 for a working one, but likely missing all accessories and even battery. The thing is they simply don't sell. So if you search every week or so, you WILL find one on kijiji.

Do not expect them to be in great physical condition though. Scratched digitizers, paint chipping on the keyboard, dents in the screen bezel and elsewhere are pretty much guaranteed. These are 5 year old phones that were used. Interestingly, every slider on these N900s works almost as new.

Good luck finding another one. It shouldn't be impossible.

Seller told me item was sold. I think that's good in a way.

N9, N9, 808, C6-01, 5530


Each of these devices still serve a purpose to me, though the magenta N9 is my daily driver.
