    With the new pictures from today's fresh leak, there was of course complaint comments about "oh noes, no metal." And of course I was a bit annoyed. Now I looked closer at the pictures themselves and they looked like the plastic shell covers the whole back and sides.

    Wait...
    Shell...
    Removable battery= removable shell= more colors.

    And then why has nobody (with probably some exceptions) realized that there's a possibility of a METAL shell?!

    It's possible, though I wonder if a metal shell will withstand the repeated flexing needed when removing to access the battery, switch covers, etc.

    I really like this strong aluminium frame around my L930, it simply looks & feels quite better, of course I'm not talking about technical advantages and disadvantages of using metal just about feel & look. After all, the shape, look, and feel dramatically affect our overall experience and if it fits the hand better, feels better, and looks better, it is better.

    Im definitely among those who dont like devices completely made of polycarbonate not to mention that I hate those onscreen navigation keys as well and because all of mentioned thing I'll most probably keep my L930 and wait for the long awaited surface branded device or something similar that falls in premium segment not only by specifications and performances but look & feel as well...

    Metal shell with wide polycarbonate camera ring! ;)

    I like the new design. More ergonomic, and I like polycarbonate.

    If they sell at all, somebody in China will be cranking out metallic pink, er... "rose gold" shells for them.

    What's stopping anyone from making an L930-style shell?
