Project N955 – Turn your N9 into a ‘N950′!

So there I was, thinking how to get my hands on the N950 some time ago… but then I thought: How will other people will get the N950? Everyone should be able to get the N950…!

All this thinking have made me do something about this problem. A little “case-mod” can do miracles 

I bought a cheap iPhone bluetooth slide-case, and a cheap N9 case on eBay.

I unscrewed the case to get rid of the iPhone case, to just have the bluetooth keyboard with the slider.

Then, I just made holes in the cheap N9-case and screwed the slider on it.

Turn on the device, pair them and the result: N9 with a keyboard!

The only drawback is that there is no Ctrl button. I hope someone can help on this project to add a ctrl key for this bluetooth keyboard. There is a “menu” button which doesn’t do anything on the N9… Maybe we can bind this key to act as a Ctrl key?

I made some pictures on how I did this, I’ll upload them today to share this idea with everybody.

Result! (This is an early build, that’s why it’s not perfectly centered in the middel)
