Sure, you could jailbreak your iPhone to mount all sort of cool things on it, but opportunities are you’ve never ever had an iPhone with a totally different operating system affixed to it. Now’s your opportunity to own one, as this pre-iOS (and also pre-iPhone OS, for all you sticklers) iPhone 2G prototype is working on Apple’s internal screening software called Switchboard.
It’s currently up for bidding on eBay, with a rate of US$ 610.00 as of this writing, though the reserve rate has not yet been met. The phone is in fact very attack, which recommends it could well have been one of Apple’s in-the-wild test burros, or probably it was just not cared for in the years since its retired life. Regardless, it looks like it’s going to cost a king’s ransom to pick this up.
