My guess would be if you buy it before December then it's not genuine, or an unsupported beta version.
According to other posts Nokia appear to have recalled the few that were sent out as demo version to make changes.

I use ebay frequently and would not risk buying one from there or a similar non retail supplier until stock is seen in shops or @expansys.

Right.

Take a look at this Thread:

Guess it's better to wait... otherwise you'll problably buy a "sample" that have an error (and should be replaced).

Patience has its price, let the dust settle and let the bugs come out and get fixed before buying. :D

Whether prototypes/pre-release phones or final, shipping phones, they'd still all be "genuine" (or at least I don't think any other company is doing "pirate" or "clone" 9500's anyway). ;)

Expansys answer to my e-mail (I asked if they confirmed the delay for December) and they told me again that they will receive Nokia 9500 at 27 Oct.

I'm a little bit confused...

1. Who says Vicky is a man, man

2. Do you really think Nokia likes to say "Sorry people there is a delay on our 9500 communicator coz of a malfunction on a chip" ...
Now that would be a good selling point for future customers ...

3. If I make something (like the Nokia 9500) why should I (Nokia) not know what is going on with the thing i create / the release date?

4. 4th quarter has just begun...

5. It's "Talk to Nokia"

:D Yeah not a bad idea, cause it confuses me to see a universally-girl-name beside a picture of a man.

Though you have my respects vicky. :icon14:

I have to admit that when I read Vicky I thought it was a girl. When I saw the picture of the guy next to the name, I thought maybe that's her boyfriend. I even clicked on Vicky's name and saw the public profile and saw that he has a yahoo account called a boy with grey eyes....

...and I still thought it was a girl!!!!

Sorry dude! I gotta speak what I think!

How can Nokia find bugs and fix them if nobody has the device to find them and report them? Sounds like a catch 22....

Because there are people currently testing it...

RickyTec

I think it would be fair that Nokia send an 9500 to AAS to test it...
All this advertising (and suport) should be rewarded!
What do you thinK?

You have your point but id rather play the end user rather than the ginuie pig, (nokia is like microsoft sometimes). This is not a 1dollar device and should be more stable compared to other smartphones, its your call, mines just an advice. Let the people who wants to get it first, get it first, but as a long time nokia user, the first phones are not always the stable ones. :rolleyes:

I've just found one on Ebay that actually has a slight chance of being honest, but possibly still a demo version. That said the supplier does'nt accept PAYPAL only bank transfers.

I really should follow the advice of the poster above and wait a few months for the bugs to be ironed out.

Bank transfer? Ask for Escrow where you pay the fee. If it's genuine, they should accept.

Or ask them if they would consider selling it face to face, even if your not prepared to travel to scotland, if the buyer is genuine they should have no problem with this.
