Hey Aadix,
Id say your dad's friend got ripped off,

THere were a lot of mobile brokers in Bombay who sold prototype 9500's for a lot os money,

one 9500 went for 82000 rs,

but all of them were incomplete devices with lots of bugs and lots of missing softwares and sometimes even hardware,

prototypes are more like testing devices,

they are released by nokia to be tested by their own personnel or people who opt for such tests,
much like the beta testing of softwares,

and sale of these devices is illegal for the seller and stupid for the buyer as they dont carry any warranty from the company,

so basically ur buying a mobile for which you cant sue the company, you are sure you have bugs, you're buying it sometimes at double the cost, and for what ... a couple of months ....

its not worth it .....

but ill surely post some more pics here for you guys ....

and take my word ...

the 9500 is a good device ....

I have a Sony Ericsson Z200. Nice looking phone. Totally basic features. Incredibly slow and frustrating text input. Bogus phonebook. So-so Reception.
I wanna change !!

Had a few phones before this.
Started with a Nokia 3310.
After a few months changed to a Motorola E360. One of the first colour phones then. Decent phone.
Then got a Nokia 3650 when it just came out. Awesome phone. Weird keypad. Lost that. It fell out while i was riding my bike. Boohoo.
Then used a Nokia 8310. Hated that phone. Too small.
Now got a Z200.
Gonna change sometime when i manage to save some money.
