    Ok,
    So my wife got herself a Lumia 520 yesterday :) very nice and all but the wierd thing is..
    They advertise with a blue version everywhere (even on the box) but there is no blue cover available?
    I've tried googling for it and searched all the best webshops around (amazon.co.uk and some from The Netherlands) but can't find it anywhere.
    Is it just not available here in Europe ?

    Found it in several places in the UK online, but with carriers. The one site I found for just the phone said currently unavailable from retailers.

    Are they just that hard to come by then ? hmm might give it a few days, maybe it'll pop up somewhere.. good to know it is not region locked to the US for example.

    I bought my two sons a 520 from Carphone Warehouse a few weeks ago. I bought them with the white cases (black is so "meh") and then bought the red and yellow covers on Amazon UK. I looked everywhere to buy the blue covers but so far haven't found them available anywhere.

    These look like they're worth a try though:

    And I like the look of this. Wonder if its a silicone case or the actual cover

    Nokia Stores in the Philippines have 520 shells and covers.

    In fact, I almost got one myself (if it wasn't for the fact that I own a 620.)

    I bought my cyan/blue battery cover from ebay and thought the difference in the material was because the ebay cover wasn't original. Nice to know that this is just how they are. I too prefer the black cover's feel. The cyan one feels like normal plastic, while the black one is more "velvety" and just generally nicer.

    I wonder if any other color than black comes with this texture?

    My phone came with both the cyan & black covers (North America). I tend to agree that while the cyan cover is nice looking, the black cover has a more rubbery feel to it, which makes it less slippery when you rest it on a table, etc. I would suggest getting a protective cover for it in the colour/style of your choice (not from Nokia)...there are plenty to choose from online.

    How does the Cyan feel? I have 2. White and black. Loving the black more though.

    So far the experience isn't great the customer service are lacking a lot both webchat and telephone service are substandard and not very professional but I have heard positives on delivery we will see in a few days....at the moment I would not recommend them..

    I have now recieved all three lumia 520 cases, and they are now fitted to our phones, so the product seems great and the price been as they are hard to find is good, but the service from the company isn't great so if you can deal with a substandard service then you should be pleased with the end result at least...(the one below is mine)
