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

This Article was Originally posted at Maemo.Org by User HtheB:
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.

Place the sticker back on top of the N9 case to prevent scratches on your N9

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