I've seen a news article announcing them, though don't actually remember the make.

The price quoted was something like $699 (+P&P :) ) if I remember correctly.

At that price Salma Hayek is still a better bet.... ;)

Be carefull! I bet you this is a fraud. The seller have only 5 feedbacks, so give your money to charity or something else instead, because you will never see this card anyway.

there's little doubt the product is genuine.. as to the seller.. well who knows..

It was only launched at the end of July though.. already on ebay?

I cannot see any online store selling it yet. Not even expansys it seems

doubtful it's a real sale, but for sure its a genuine product.

Perhaps ask for some actual photos of it and not the press pic that is on the sale page?

I thought that Ebay's verification process would scare off any "casual" scammers ???

I know I had to give personal bank details etc etc when I registered ..... kinda put a crimp in all my own scam plans :) ..... plus I'd have all the angry customers coming to my house to kick my ass !!

most ebay scammers are based in eastern europe, and countries where the laws or the police arent as good at stopping fraud. Still even for those based in the uk there are always ways to get around rules if they are determined, the best defence is to be careful, if something looks dodgy then stear clear

Don´t understand why people bid on him? Are they so stupid? Seriously? The seller bought some coins and some other crap just to get 5 points. heheh

Interesting! He's been a member of Ebay only just over a month, he's bought five things so far, hasn't spent over a tenner on any of them, at least three of them look illegal, and now he's selling a couple of hundred quid memory card that's only just been announced by the manufacturers......

Call me suspicious, but I think I'll be making a better fiscal decision and using my wad of £10 notes as firelighters rather than bidding on this item! :)

hmmmmmmmmm.........................

this is a fraud, i'm positive about it.

you all have say that:

1. this person is a member on ebay for a month(feedback is very important and how long the person become a member on ebay )

2. the item i think should be higher than his price(probably 4-5 times higher).

3. the pic used is very suspicious(probably taken from some sites).

4. the person put the item on ebay even it's not released yet.

i am the so called scammer that was selling a 4gb sd card on ebay, luckily some of us do have good contacts and get free test samples from manufacturers all over the world.......

to send an sd card by dhl costs £5 sterling, the card sold privately for £320 and my custoemr was very happy,

my xda 11i after a simple configuration works fine with a 4gb sd card!!!

some of you guys need to chill out and not be so paranoid!!!!

not everything is a fraud!!!

keep up the bitter work!!

ps you will have to search for 1gb sd cards, these are all the maunfacturers of sd cards in the world...... then hunt for 2 gb sd cards 4gb sd cards.....

1 gb sd cards are about $46 these are trade prices and they will ship them to you......

its where all the big companies get them made........ you can buy anything you like on there just search for what you want......

even pda's light bulbs, musical key rings everything is sourced through aliSPAM

do your homework before slagging people off!!!!

or go to dixons and buy a 64mb card

your so sad,  its one of the 3 options ebay gives you to end a listing early........

4 gb sd cards are $275 dollars  go look on  www.aliSPAM.com  straight from korea

This is a common scam on ebay.

The seller has hack the SD card so that it shows up as 4 gig available.

But it won't let you fit more than 2 Gig.

go read on ebay.com theres articles about this.

Remember 99% of 4gb flash drives, cards, etc are all fakes

Not that i'm saying there isnt a legit one there. But obviously at the price is it a fake.

hope this helps

ectobia Welcome to the site ;)

Not sure why you posted on such an old thread that's two years out of date.

Memory cards have now far exceeded the 2GB mark so saying 99% of 4GB cards are fakes is not quite true in todays market. Chceck out www.mobymemory.com they have 4GB in most types of cards and I use a 6GB microSD without any problems.
