I have acquired two Blackberry Z10 LEs - the LE is a limited run in red. One has been claimed by my wife, but the second is up for grabs.

Brand new and still in the box. Only arrived on the courier this morning (after a week sitting in Fliway's warehouse somewhere).

It's worth noting that I assume this will have a foreign power plug. My wife's one (a couple of months older) had two plugs - from memory UK and US. They're just USB chargers though so a generic one should work, although when I first tried it on an iPhone charger it didn't work. My wife accidentally plugged it into her Kindle cable (which is connected to another iPhone charger) and it charged fine, so don't really know for sure! Obviously USB from your computer/TV/whatever should work too. We're using the UK one with a travel adaptor thing with no problems.

The other gotcha which any NZ based BB fans are no doubt aware of is that data won't work on 2 Degrees. I spent ages fiddling around with it and had no luck, so my wife ended up porting to Telecom. This is a problem with any Z10.

Based on Trademe pricing, plus a bit since it's an LE, less a bit because there's no NZ charger, less a discount because I don't have to deal with Trademe, I'm thinking $750 including courier in NZ.

Flick me a message here or @IanTLS on Twitter if you want to discuss.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you.

Since freitasm is having such amazing luck selling his Z10, I thought I might as well bump this one to be part of the action. I popped it on Trade Me this morning, got promptly delete for having foreign power adapters ("likely to be unsafe". Yeah right). Their oh-so-prompt support team suddenly aren't so prompt and it's still not back online. Please help me get rid of this without having to deal with Trade Me any more.

$700, for a shiny, red, unused Z10 LE, still in the box, with all accessories (except the power adapters, but I can give you some free foreign power adapters for ornamental value). I had a wee look and it's number 00016, so pretty much a collectors item I reckon. If you're really smart you'll buy this one and freitasm's to have the full set.

Sorry for the useless post but, ahhh nuts I'm such a fan of the Z10, wanting to develop some apps for BB sometime and I love the idea of having a limited edition "developer" Z10 haha. If I could afford it I'd have bitten your hand off.

Good luck with the sale anyway.

EDIT: Actually I might be able to make an unorthodox deal. I'll PM you.
