These are just a sample of the links that note trinopasifik.com is a scam. The prices are ridiculously low.
The second site, you need to read the fine print quite closely. Though the products resemble Apple iPods, they are not Apple brand. They're "copycat" merchandise. The English is a bit hard to follow in spots on the site, but they do seem to make an honest effort to get across that these are NOT genuine brands.
Fashion design of APPLE looking
And notice the link to the "Nokia" phones say "Copy Nokia Mobiles".
In fact, a company representative makes that quite plain on Alibaba's forums, and even points out some very useful information on why you cannot buy real iPods from China. The English is a bit hard to follow in places, but there's some stellar advice from this user.
My gut feeling (not backed up by any other evidence) is that this employee would not be so honest about the pitfalls of buying from China and the fact that their goods are not genuine Apple/Nokia unless the Eagle Science & Technology site were reasonably reliable.
But you need to be clear that you are 1) ordering EST products, NOT Apple, Nokia, etc. and 2) you need to research the quality of said products and their warranties yourself. You might also need to research your local import laws. Some countries are stricter than others about what is considered open for seizure as "counterfeit" and whether or not you can purchase said goods in bulk.
