man. it is such a wonderful deal. and still too hard to recommend to anyone just because it comes loaded with symbian.
as for n9... it is unlikely to be launched here officially. it would be a surprise if nokia launches it here. especially considering WP Mango is now available to them and devices based on it might be just weeks away.
the first of the nokia WP devices is likely to be a N9 copycat. i bet they would launch it over N9 here in india.
