    When i heard the Lumia 710 would only come in black or white i was a bit confused cause every video hands on or review made it seem like the diffrent back covers was a huge selling point for people who like there phone personalized to fit their style first i had my eyes on the lumia 800 but ive given up on the us gettin that so i looked at the 710 and got a bit excited when i seen a guy at nokia world had the black 710 with a yellow backing so i contacted nokia via email after seeing a us hands on review that only had the black and white backings interchanged i also read you'll get to choose your backin but all and all this is what nokia had to say

    Those different colors is a HUGE selling point in my opinion. Hopefully this is only temporary.

    I expect we'll see other channels where the covers could be ordered eventually.

    You can pre-order the back covers from Expansys-USA. I have a new 710 in white (comes with a black cover) coming today and I've also ordered the white, blue and yellow covers ;)

    I just got my cyan cover. Absolutely love it :) Expansys was easy, took about 10 days for receipt and they said they were out of stock when I placed my order.

    There are also matching bumpers you can buy as well, but I think I'll keep the cleaner look of no bumper.

    Seems like Nokia is going really strong for Lumia 710 accessories.

    Cyan, magenta, yellow, black and white back plates (Nokia CC-3033 ) going for around 9 euros, plenty of Nokia's official full back silicone covers(Nokia CC-1032) and this silicone protector that only covers the sides (Nokia CC-1046) of the Lumia 710.
    There's also Angry Birds themed back covers (Nokia CC-3036) and leather case (Nokia CP-569).

    EDIT: Seems like there's even official screen protector (Nokia CP-5041)

    What color is your phone? Can you take a snapshot of it with the new cover? The trouble with these accessories is that none of them show a phone in them. I have seen the white phones with the blue back cover but I have yet to see a black phone with other covers.

    Personally, I think the blue would look sweet on a black phone, but would like to see it on a phone before jumping in.

    Blue does look great on black. Unfortunately I have blue on white. I have a video on YouTube if you would like:

    Hey, thanks for the links. I found this review also after doing some digging around.

    Shows some more with the blue. It does look pretty good with the blue, I think.

    For those in Canada, gocellular.ca has the blue cover available for pre-order on their site and it's 13.99. No idea when it will be available but their site just says "in a few weeks".

    awesome! but i feel kinda ripped off since the US gets their cover for free while we canadians have to pay for it :@

    I'm sorry but 16.99 is too much for a simple battery cover

    I have the blue back cover now for my black 710 and I have to say that it greatly enhances the look of the phone. I wasn't expecting it to look as good as it does now!

    The phone's lines now look better and standout thanks to the contrast of the black against the blue. It looks a lot more sleek and curvy in a good way, especially around the back top, and bottom of the phone. The shiny black parts also stand out nicely too now. I didn't mind the look of the phone before but i'm glad it doesn't look like a black chunk of plastic anymore.

    The material of the blue cover also makes it feel different than the stock black one. The black one had a bit of a rubbery feel, whereas the blue one has a harder feel, but feels great to hold.

    I will be a bit busy the next few days but maybe I can dig out my camera on the weekend and take some pics.

    Nokia should have gone with a two-tone design from the start with this phone.

    Nice. If they call the white 900 the "Stormtrooper", I'd call this the original "Clone troopers". I see that the white and yellow covers are glossy while the red, cyan, and black has that rubberized coating.

    I like the fact that at least of the Nokia WP's, we have cover options as well as removable batteries.

    If anyone is interested Amazon sells the various Back covers for the 710. They are a little pricey at around $22, but they do have them. I ordered the Yellow one, which should be arriving today.
