Default Are these accessories OEM or generic?

So I ordered the famous leather swivel holster and another battery for my curve on Amazon due to their low prices. I have a strong feeling that they are replicas and not original RIM products. Can someone verify this? Here are pics of the two and their packaging:



this packaging looks suspect. that compartment can fit about 20 more batteries, so why waste so much space?

That all looks like original stuff to me.

The battery that came with my Curve looks like the lighter colored one, including the same looking pink sticker on the bottom and the lack of luster.

That's where I get my accessories. Always OEM. Real Chinese leather.

Thanks for the quick response guys. Gonna go to Best Buy soon to compare the holster. I'm pretty paranoid about having fake stuff.

The holster looks just like my OEM one. My packaging was different, but I'm in Canada so that might be okay.

My battery also looks different from both of yours.
