As far as eBay auctions go in the U.S., the first iPhone 5 with a cracked screen surfaced not even four full days after the phone was released to the market.
A seller from New Jersey wins the title for being the first to break an iPhone 5 and appears to be an individual–not a powerseller that got their hands on a shipment of broken phones.
4 days … that is skillful. Even more so: taking into account the possibility that the owner may not have even gotten the phone the instant it came out and that they probably did not list it for sale the second it got smashed, they may have owned it for even less than ~4 days.
It must have been a wild weekend, but for a final difference of $60 the damage to the wallet was less than it could have been.
