    HoosierDaddy - You are bang on, the sides are not metal. Its metal coated Polycarbonate. Still the whole case is polycabonate but they are coated with metal color and the back is given a different finish. Qi charging inlcuded along with NFC.. Overall the case looks elegant and nice. People should not expect metal as metal requires spl antenna requirements like 930 and 925.
    Wonderful. Now I can stop trying to figure out where MS hid all the microscopic torq screws that held a rigid back on. LoL.

    Nice, too bad there are no flashy colors like the 930.

    Unfortunately it looks like the link is for a distributor... you have to order the cases in large quantity to be then resold

    Well, since they are an official partner with MS. I think MS stores will sell them as well. It would make sense.
    I can see that happening but if all Microsoft Stores (especially the converted Nokia Stores) will sell them? Thing is since Microsoft didn't provide any color shells this time, this is the only alternative Lumia users got. Not to mention, some people are not fond spending another set of money to pay for 3rd-party case just to get color they want.

    So now Microsoft really have to push these on all Microsoft Stores worldwide. Having nice set of accessories already available for Lumia is good for the brand that especially not ubiquitous.

    A lot of companies will jump on this. Mozo was just working with MS closely. You will likely see lots of accessories on amazon and other places. You can go with the standard ones. The white ones look really good in person. Go to an MS store and look at the devices. People are saying they are so much better when you hold them yourself.

    Red plus gold should be premium enough too I think, I am more hyped about the covers than by the whole MS presentation.
    I do like the Gold, but would prefer the red looked more like the brown one without the bumps and without any stitching.

    Definitely agree with you. Mozo just released a new pic of the red case in another angle. It's still pretty nice.

    The gold definitely is a nice touch no doubt.

    this gets more companies on board with windows 10 and lumia's, nothing wrong with that and we benefit with many more choices than what ms would have given us. these phones look sexy as hell and the following week you can make it something else.

    For years, I've just used a simple 'Case Logic' camera case and put it on my belt. Fits my phone and earpiece and a spare thumbdrive. I never had to worry about a clip breaking or the phone falling out.

    I know that when I upgrade to the 950XL, it won't fit, so I'll be looking for something new. Maybe Tuffuv will have something available like:

    Now, let's get some non-leather ones in more colors.
    Pretty soon, everyone will have 3D printers and will just make their own.

    That requires 3-D design software skills I have none of.

    Well the Sydney Microsoft Store isn't opened yet but I will!

    Still this can be a problem (we'll have yet to see) to other countries that doesn't have Microsoft Store though (Converted Nokia ones). Thing is not everybody wants or know that these cases exist online, I came from emerging country where people doesn't do much online transaction as the developed countries do but still have big purchasing power when it comes to phones, which is why Android devices thrived on those countries much better than iPhone, also Windows Phone too thanks to Nokia's effort.

    If these cases will be available together with the devices on the same store, it will help the selling point of these new Lumia's. People love personalizing phones, especially something like these shells. Lumia is pretty weak in terms of accessories availability and Microsoft needs to push this, maybe this is easier than app gap issue.
