    Ya read what he wrote, he said everything that came with the device was phoney.
    He didn't say the device was phoney.
    Just all of the accessories.

    Does that even matter? Why bother covering a real thing with fake accessories and then sell it? Does it even work at all for that matter?

    I'm not too worried about it. It's a legitimate site, if I get some sort of fake, I can return it. If it actually is some kind of Pre order, I can call cancel it. The seller has a decent reputation and the site isn't some kind of scam, it's just in Chinese.

    Do you cancel your order or keep continuing until your order arrives to your hand?

    Does it really say Pre order? In that case, I'm canceling my order. No harm no foul.

    Keep in mind that it's also shipping from China. I'm not sure how much you've payed for shipping but I assure you that, no matter what, it will not be fast to arrive.

    You'll be lucky to get it in a month and who knows when we will have the official Slider released? By the time they ship that to you, you realize it's a fake and have to ship it back to them... Hopefully, for your sake it's not a scam but I would definitely be too cautious to order one of these. Even IF you get your money back, there is going to be such a delay AND hassle that will be inevitable.

    Good luck to you. However, I'm usually pretty optimistic but there is no way that this is the real deal. Now it's just a matter of waiting to see how hard you've been taken.

    [INFO]OK guys and gals, language/pronounciation is way off topic and some comments could be construed as rascist (even if not intended that way).

    Let's get back to discussing the device.[/INFO]

    China is known to release cheap knock-offs of Android and Apple devices. This is no different.

    The elephant in the room: by now there's a HUGE possibility that the blandroid slider that has been so ridiculously glorified the last few months, is actually this chinese-made knock-off, and has got nothing at all to do with BlackBerry.

    How about that for a bomb?

    For comparison, the exact same thing happened to the Bold 9900, back in August 2011: The device had yet to even hit the market, but the fakes were already being sold in Dubai.

    Little bird told me they will have press conference toward end of this month or early next month to announce the device. Prepare to be shocked in a good way! Lol... I believe it when I see it!

    It's very likely the seller somehow got them from Blackberry's Chinese manufacturing company. I know Blackberry employees have been using the Venice for testing purpose. The hardware has already been out, the software is probably not the final version.

    hey at least the knock offs work as sold... ie, you get an android phone with a keyboard.

    chinese knockoff the branding, but the products would be fine as advertised. considering most manufacturing is done in china, you end up with a chinese item either way, knockoff or real

    edit, more curious to if people will grab the os and put it into passport. like how xda put android on windows mobile pho e and such.

    This is pretty standard knowledge. If it's being released in November than we will be hearing something a month before... I was just hoping it'll be during IFA. Considering most of what I heard out of IFA is android based(60%+)

    It appears that, whether local stock markets skyrocket or dive, copying business remains as usual in China.



    woah, they have IOS running on fake hardware or is it iOS skinned Android?

    That's pretty amazing. Can BlackBerry hire those Chinese devs to port BlackBerry 10 UI onto Android?

    Lol

    Actually it would be fun if those chinese guys would make a venice clone with android but BlackBerry 10 gestures before BlackBerry themselves get to it...
