Believe it or not, nokia does not owe you a truckload of its latest, most expensive ****.

Be glad they are even honouring the warranty.

Yeah, that borrowed looks of N9 is what still attracts me to Lumia a device.

Size+Weight: related to your keyboard preference
I need a hardware keyboard, am very much used to the N900's one. But I can trade it off for a better look, I can manage with a basic model for texting.

manojkumaru, I see the proposed solution as the best:

3. They have been trying since 4th oct and couldn't fix my usb hub back onto the board. Also, they tried to swap the board with an Old n900 board, whose IMEI found to be from England and is more than 2 years old already. I didn't want such an unprofessional replacement. So turned it down and escalated the problem. Asked for a new N900. But they don't find one in India they say.

This is really better service than many of us N900 users may expect anywhere in the world.

If they can replace the motherboard without filling the phone internals with sand and crumbs, I'd opt for this especially if "they" are Nokia and extend your warranty after repair.

In any case try not to be too much of a modern consumer...IOW, be careful that the warranty claim does not work contra-productive and makes you end up without N900 and a dumbphone you will want to sell at half its market price.

It depends. Do you want a 'smartphone' or a silly loltweetfacespacebook?

Consider the e7 has a fully integrated SIP stack/VPN support/full PIM integration and all the other **** that comes as standard on a Nokia 'E' series symbian.

The lumia has...uh...they added copy and paste by now right?

The warranty of my N900 officially ended yesterday, but the invoice claims two more weeks. And replacing the motherboard leaves me with no warranty again. Anyway, that is not a bad trade-off. Either way I lose the warranty now or in two weeks, but I will have a working N900, which would just have lost its greater looks due to the workmanship of naive engineers at the care center.

Go for N900 replacement or E7, E7 is quite complete when it comes to e-mail, PIM. Nokia e-series are business phone so they are of good quality and the keyboard is amazing.

I have my N900 for 2 years now, and never had needed to go for warranty. Probably, I void my warranty when I replaced the digitizer myself :P I think even without warranty the N900 can be fixed by your self

I could, but I just tried to use the warranty, but they are now refusing to return my mobile - they probably have ripped it off now & the condition is very worse - I produced it almost new, as the whole keyboard unit and the LCD were recently replaced by them to address keyboard & proximity sensor issues.

I should chose the better of the worsts now
