No, but I think it's great for the guy! He paid for the A850, and got the A900, just with a different label on it...
Would be cool if he could test whether the viewfinder gives 100% coverage.

I can't see that video right now, but I did see a post about someone saying they got a 900 in 850 body on dyxum very recently.

This is pretty interesting, could it be that the only thing determining the burst rate is the firmware? Meaning the 3fps of the A850 is artificially imposed? The D300 can be tricked into firing at 9fps without the battery grip so I think it is possible that the limitation isn't necessarily all hardware.

Oh, and the A850 makes an awesome shutter sound!

@popo
I saw the story on dyxum first.

@grahamnp
that's what I thought too. It's crazy how certain equipment (in general, not only cameras) have the potential to work better but are purposely (?) limited.
