That is awesome boss! But can one rely on Indiatimes? As i read a comment somewhere, about indiatimes and naaptol selling grey market mobiles which are useless ( though I don't really know how or why a grey market mobile differs from a normal one). Great suggestion though, would consider it seriously

Is it safe to use this phone? No other issues with the phone.

Can someone suggest a good replacement? Has to have a long battery life of 2 days atleast, and easy to use for calls/SMS, and a 2MP camera atleast. Wifi would be nice but not a must have.

Also, a solid build, if not baby-proof

I am also looking for a dual sim with the same specs.
Is the Nokia E51 still in production? Or any phone with a similar metallic body? That should be baby proof I guess.

Anyone know how I can get my hands on a N950. Heard its not coming to our shores - I doubt it though.

Or should I get a N9 instead? I know the differences between both. And yeah I like to juggle around with code so the preference for the N950.

The HW/OS combo on that machine has got me interested, something I wanted on the N8 but was not delivered. I presently own a N8.

Thanks for the suggestion. I really liked the original Wave with AMOLED display. Its shape, size and weight was perfect for me.

But Wave II is a bit bulky, there's no way you can call it a sweet little phone.

I am really impressed with Bada OS. I am playing the waiting game to see how the Bada marketplace and apps develop.

Battery life is important for me and Android OS seems to be very power hungry. Bada scores over Android in this area.

Hi Spitfire,

On endgadget, there is a link for the developer forum. Check that out. Other than that , you should know someone @ Nokia I guess.

N9 should be a good option if you can't get hold of N8.

Hey Inder,

I tried LaunchPad. This is what they say.

Nokia Developer - Develop for the Nokia N9

Scroll to the bottom.

Nokia N950 Developer Kit for Nokia N9 apps

To help prepare for the publishing of apps for the Nokia N9 smartphone, a limited number of developer kits have been produced using the Nokia N950 phone. This phone has a pre-release version of software for the Nokia N9 and some minor hardware differences, for example the Nokia N950 doesn’t provide NFC features. The Nokia N950 Developer Kit is available to qualifying Nokia Developer Launchpad members who have published apps to Ovi Store, or have started to develop their apps using Qt. If you wish to obtain one of these kits, please send your request to: nokia.developer.launchpad@nokia.com. The deadline for submitting requests is 31 July 2011.
I qualify and have send a request. I have never done it before. Anyone here who qualifies and has better access to get one let me know.

You meant N950 instead of N8 right? I already have a N8. Need a Meego phone, almost got myself a N900. Probably might get one sometime.

True. Android battery consumption is simply ridiculous. But it definitely is more future proof than Bada.

Bada 2.0 is widely expected to be out in September. So maybe you can wait till then. Still Wave II is a good piece of hardware for those who want a 'mobile phone'.

Just got my Droid Incredible 2 this evening. Will get it going on Monday. Needs MEID mapping for CDMA. Also, as it is a world phone it has GSM as well. Only one protocol at a time though. If I understand right GSM comes in only if CDMA is off.

Nope.. I meant N9 nokia is going to launch N9 with Meego. Check this out below:

Home | Experience Nokia N9 ? All it takes is a swipe

Nokia N9 Photos - Phone Arena

It will be here in a 3-4 months though. I know a friend in Nokia but he recently got a pink slip as Symbian has been pushed to Accenture.
