    it wont let me post links yet, but ebay
    "TV Mobile Phone I68 WiFi Unlocked Qwerty PDA MP3 MP4 A0"
    and its the only listing. (include international sellers)

    kind of amazed to come across this one.
    iv seen the "blueberry" before but this one has to top it off.

    i think its meant to be of the tour, or just the new curve.
    i cant really pick anything wrong with it from the specs put up, and the operating system looks spot on.
    but for AU$175.90, having DUAL sim cards.. wifi.. and being able to watch free-to-air tv on it..
    kind of makes me want to know why i pay so much hahaha.

    cant these manufactures get in trouble for putting something basically identical to a blackberry, but with added feautures... in trouble with rim? or copyright issius
    or are they fine cause it doesnt have the name across the front -_- lol.

    i admit im tempted if they keep that kind of quality replication going.

    I think it's fake. LOL. That's only because I'm cynical.

    If indeed, it is real, then I think no to copyright. Unless RIM has copyright to the design of their phones as well. Other than that, it's up for grabs.

    Still looks fake to me though.

    Yeah, they're smart. Companies like that make big money.

    My brother actually owns a palm pre knock-off from Japan. When I saw it I got super syked, and then I went... Marcus, WTF is this?


    They market to consumers who want to pay less but still get the hottest thing.

    Who the hail would want a Blackberry lookalike! Without the BB OS (which probably can't be ripped off) and the BB data services (which definitely can't be), the usability of the unit goes way down!
