    this always happens with things, anything in demand, people snap them up just for a quick buck.
    It was really bad during the HP Touchpad firesale IIRC.

    I bid on 6 eBay auctions, finally got lucky on the last one. I didn't hesitate when it was in stock, though, I am in India and my concierge service didn't place the order on time.

    Looking at the sold listings most stay under $400, but it does look like a winner. Hoping MS can ramp up production fast.

    No, I paid 270 USD for one, which is not too much, really when you see that the iPhone costs almost 4 times as much.

    You might be surprised to know that Indians are not as poor as you see in movies. Most Indians can afford smartphones and own one, not only the ones who live in castles.

    Are you comparing a smartphone to a fitness band? Their not even remotely the same.

    Ebay is the scourge of consumer goods. It annoys the hell out of me when people go into a store, pick up a bunch of something that's already limited in stock, with the sole purpose of selling them on ebay.

    I wish shops would restrict initial sales to 1 per customer. At least there's some satisfaction in seeing prices plummet when production ramps up.

    No I am just saying that it is not only super rich Indians living in castles who can afford to buy fitness bands, in this case one which costs 1/5th the price of an iPhone, which many Indians have, too.

    They MS store had plenty of bands online and in store the day it came out. Some people procrastinated...I bought a few to pay for the band and the upcoming iwatch. Cant argue with $600 big ones ;-).
