It's just an horrendous cash grab made by some Italian "entrepreneur".

They somehow got an hold of the Commodore license (and even so, I wouldn't be so sure of that - they conduct business in truly questionable ways in Italy, usually "forgetting" to do stuff like licensing until later) and slapped it on a no-name Chinese smartphone hoping that long time fans will just buy it for sake of Nostalgia.

This explains the situation pretty well, not sure why the other media outlets are drinking so much Kool-Aid: http://www.androidpolice.com/2015/07...ets-attention/
