Seeing no clear path to carry its bizarre GEM idea cellphone to market, Andy Rubin’s Important abruptly stopped being an organization earlier this week. Now, by full coincidence, a bundle of Important swag has appeared on the market on eBay — together with an unreleased charging dock.
Along with the dock, the sale consists of an Important Telephone in Ocean Depths blue plus Important’s clip-on 360-degree digicam, a case for that digicam, a headphone adapter, and a pair of earbuds. All of the gadgets are unopened besides the audio adapter and the dock, which is visibly worn.

In the event you’re eager about proudly owning a bizarre piece of smartphone historical past, hit up the hyperlink under and place your bid. You’ve got acquired till 5:59 p.m., Jap on February 20.
I am positive a lot of you had been chomping on the bits to personal this piece of smartphone historical past, however sadly, the itemizing is now not accessible. The web page now says the itemizing was “ended by the vendor as a result of the merchandise is now not accessible.”
For the reason that dock was a prototype, it is doable the proprietor was in a authorized gray space by trying to promote an unreleased product. Not less than we all know in regards to the dock’s existence now, in order that’s neat.
