    I'm here on business again and saw the best knock off Ive ever seen in my travels.

    Looks very similar;

    1) Similar size

    2) Has a "2" on the Black berry button

    Way different OS.

    If anyone wants one, Id be happy to oblige. They asked 850RMB, roughly $140 USD but I would negotiate that down as far as possible.
    I'm no looking to make money, just wanting to know if others are interested....

    Ok, I just went into the Lo Wu shopping center in Shenzhen and looked over the BB fakes. They have 2 Tour models and smaller Storm knock off as well. One of the Tours has a TV antenna and you can, well, watch TV on it....The guy selling them was asking around $110 USD for the better of the 2 but I can easily get that knocked in half at least.

    You cant tell from this pic, but in the top left corner of the phone is a black antenna that you can pull out like a 1984 cordless home phone..
    You can aslo see the difference on the BB button on both models...The storm is hilarious. It is about 1/3 of the right size....

    Ill get some more detailed pics tomorrow or later tonight my time...

    Hope all is well state side......(and in Canada)

    Just visited Shenzhen (Lowu - Wah Keong North Street) for the first time. Came back with 2 fake Iphone Mini and 1 BB (Curve? Not sure!!). They looked so good that I couldn't help wanting to find out if they actually worked. Each cost me about RM250. They demonstrated to me calling in and out without problem! Now, I started to play around with it and I realized the OS is totally something else! The major screens look similar to the real thing but some functions are actually missing.

    For eg. the BB I bought. I can't even tell which model it is. Looks like one of the Curves but the look is different from what I find on the internet. It has a trackball that works! The camera also works! The only problem I have now is that I couldn't get it to send out sms though I could receive sms without problem (anyone can help?). Also, I couldn't find the screen that can show me some sort of OS specs. I tried everything I could in the Setup/Setting icon.

    I can't blame anyone as I knew what I was into when I bought these. Just sharing my experience. Comments or suggestions are welcome though!

    In my experience,(watches) knock offs are NEVER to be trusted. I'd avoid em like the black death. But that's just one fellows opinion.
