Could it also be a counterfeit BlackBerry? Wasn't there a copycat device that was release from China a few years ago?
Yeah there were several. The most common one was the "Blockberry", cloned for pretty much each device RIM has. Another Chinese knockoff is the Tianxin, which looks like the Storm knockoff.
