How rich is the iPhone hacker now???

The 17 yr old George Hotz wud say proudly - ' I know what i did this Summer'.....
The big Hacker from Glen Rock, NJ who spent nearly 500 hours has "unlocked" the iPhone, which has now become possible for it to be used not only by AT&T but also by other providers. Now apparently we also see that the iPhone has gone down by $200. Can't imagine those guys who were standing for hours for that iPhone which also has had big problems with software. Still the Apple market is doing ok...
He is now selling his iPhones on eBay. Another surprising news is that 'CertiCell', a mobile phone repair company is giving him a brand new Nissan 350z and three 8gb iPhones in return to his unlocked iPhone. They have also promised for a consulting job in their company for him. So now who is getting rich this Summer ???
