Exactly what nokiabot said.
How'd you do it?
Does it work?
...you better have not just slapped these 2 together and said voila!

Is this working properly?...
hell is it working period?

you better not be pullin' a hoax here...
Else angry n900 villagers with the torches and pitchforks may come out and want to deal with Franky here.

Sry. Just a funny failed idea..

They fit well together:
Nexus 4, no keyboard, no sd card, no usb host mode
N900 slider mechanism, 32gb + sd card slot, usb host mode, FM transmitter, (debian server)

Connection would be over a yet to mount usb hub with full size connector, which will protect N900 usb port from falling off too)


(Or Bluetooth: The Nexus 4 people are searching for nice Bluetooth keyboard http://forum.xda-developers.com/nexu...xus-4-t2071145, i wonder when theyll find what a N900 can give them)
or wlan n900 hotspot mode

Dont fit cause, n900 is without lcd, so no micro, no native screen
Nexus 4 speaker + camera is covered in closed state
=> NO PHONE
software needs work

the parts:


For all dreamers:
Somebody is already milling a nice, fitting black aluminuim case for the N900exus4
(@endsormeans: Nobody is doing that )

Ah welllll
admirable effort...if you do manage to get it working tell us...
I'd do a Franky but...not to my only n900....unless it 100%-ish works....that is...

you did good entertainment-wise...can't be faulted there either...

now....um...where were we again?
oh yeah..

Burn Her!
Buuuuurrrrnnnn!

Hahahaha! ya ste-phan!

Sigh...I do admit the screen size here ain't too shabby.

And I also admit...when it does come time to seriously think of frankensteining my n900...I want to grab Igor and try to wire it up to a n810 body....love that keyboard and screen size, the dpad and the buttons...
sure it wouldn't be anymore powerful or faster...but it would be like ridin' in a Cadillac
