OQO never got around to actually selling the OQO Model 2+ that it introduced back in January, but that didn’t stop someone from picking one up on eBay for $4,500. I know a lot of GBM community members were waiting to buy an OQO Model 2+, but I hope none of you plunked down that much cash for a used one with no warranty or support.
The “Virtually New” OQO Model 2+ had a starting bid of $4,000 and it looks like not one, but two bidders were actually willing to pay $4,500.
I have to admit that I sometimes overpay for gadgets since I’m an early adopter, but this is just ridiculous.
Based on the seller’s location and eBay history of selling OQO accessories, this Model 2+ probably belonged to an OQO insider.
