It certainly looks like Dendrobium phalaenopsis, although I'm not sure that the blue colour makes it a true species. Could be a hybrid with some Dendrobium victoriae-reginae in there maybe............

Here's a good link for species orchid photos - the link will take you to Dendrobiums, but the site itself is extensive for all orchids....................

Most likely it's a hybrid. Virtually, all the orchids sold here are hybrids.
