Nokia's Prototype Star Trek Communicator Shows Up on eBay

For years, you've dreamed of owning a real-deal functioning communicator like the ones they used in Star Trek. And wouldn't you know it, but Nokia was actually working on one. They even made it so far as to build 14 prototypes before scrapping the project. And now one of those prototypes has appeared on eBay.

The phone was apparently supposed to be a tie-in with last year's Star Trek movie, but it never was actually released. Which is unfortunate! Sure, this doesn't look like it would have the features of an iPhone or an EVO, but it's a communicator! And that's gotta count for something.
