Sell other half cover (TOH) in India. I especially have my eyes on 'Poppy Red' that some fine work you got there. Even third party makers should get involved. There is money to be made here!

Also since I have your attention. It would be a great idea to get an official keyboard. I know people have been asking for this #tohkbd

Edit: extra battery would also be nice. Well no harm in asking aye?

Batteries aren't even available in Jollas home country, Finland. Where the phone released almost a year ago. What is the point of user replaceable battery. if batteries are not available?

I understand. What about third party battery makers? is there no solution at all?

I asked a Chinese battery manufacturer and he said he could probably do 100 pieces, if I sent him specifications.

@Gaicomo what would he charge for 100 pieces?

I don't understand how an extra battery helps. You still need the phone to charge it in. It's not like a camera battery, where there's an external charging dock.

BTW, I have all four colours - courtesy of Snapdeal and the VIP box. Personally I don't like the Aloe and Poppy Red covers, just using the black one.

@DeepPurple15x I think about $3/piece plus shipment.

Please contact Snapdeal for the official accessories, as they have the exclusive right for the phone there already.

For unofficial community builds, sure, there's interest both among customers and builders in India market.

Additionally linking a few related posts (starting from the oldest):

We need the official ones offered in India :-) Probably in Snapdeal where we bought the phone!
