This was to be expected. After Google gave away free HTC Magics aka the Google Ion at Google I/O, people were bound to put this special edition, possibly Android Dev Phone 2 onto eBay. Users hit quick and capitalized on the lack of an official US HTC Magic to maximize profit--it seems that more than a few people are looking to make a quick buck rather than incorporate a wonderful phone into their daily life.

The prices are pretty amazing considering everyone got one for free at the conference. What would you guys have done, sell the Google Ion on eBay or keep it and use it? Let us know! We think we would have kept it, used it, and sold our T-Mobile G1 instead!
