I saw this in a Frys ad back then (in Septemberish) and thought it was typo. I eneded up getting one thinking it might end up as a collectors item or something.

It is indeed based on a Chinese lucky number thing.

The thing thats kinda silly about them is that they are basically a 1TB WD10EADS with an intentionally reduced capacity. :(

Glad I'm not the only one. Saw these in a Fry's ad in the paper this morning and did a triple take. I've never seen a drive of this size before. Are these more common in Asia?
