News of the two-tone Cushnie Et Ochs HTC One X broke last week, and earlier today HTC gave fans a chance to win one in a Pinterest contest. Now it seems you may be able to get hold of the exclusive device using cold, hard cash. The two-tone black and white One X has appeared on eBay, where a seller has started bidding at $350 with just under seven days to go.
Seller 2012greatwhite86, who we should point out has a feedback score of zero, claims that only 150 of the devices were made, and that some were given out to members of the fashion community at New York Fashion Week. The listing is backed up by what appears to be a photo of the real deal, complete with two-tone packaging. In addition to the unique chassis design, the phone apparently comes with a “Ben Watts "Watts Up Photo" App, with Instagram-like functionality,” according to the listing.
We’d always recommend caution when bidding on this kind of thing, but if you’re feeling brave, you can find the eBay auction listing down in the source link.

Bidder: Cruella de Vil
I can't believe anyone would bid on such a rare and expensive item from a seller with ZERO feedback. I certainly wouldn't.

Why can't we buy this phone from HTC ?
Because they are not dumb enough to make this in quantity perhaps?
For this device to have been out for several months, the HOX seems to be getting quite a bit of attention from this. When I first saw the phone I thought it was ummm unique, but for HTC to make this an exclusive, that takes some guts (coming from a company that has been getting so many negative headlines). But kudos to whoever came up with this idea.
