You're definitely going to be paying a premium here for a phone you should be able to get in a couple of weeks, but that's the price for being the first on your block with a T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 — and unlocked, at that.

A couple of the highly anticipated phones (or not, depending on which comments you're reading) have made it onto the online auction site a few weeks before the expected official release, and they're fetching a pretty penny. [via tmonews]

The first auction ends at 8 p.m. Eastern on Saturday and bidding, get this, is at $1,049.99 at the time of this writing. The second auction ends July 29 and currently is at a much more respectable $525, though we don't expect it to stay there for long.

So, how badly do you want a T-Mobile Touch Pro 2?
