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.

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)

I just ordered my Nokia Soft Cover in White from Expansys myself!

Looking forward to getting it... hopefully will be around 10 days as mentioned earlier :)

I'll post pics once I do receive it!

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: Nokia Lumia 710 Design - YouTube

But the Nokia UK website shows blue & black: Nokia Lumia 710 Specifications - Nokia - UK

have you guys checked out skinit.com? It's not a cover per se but it is a cover/stick on for your cover. 14.99 they have some pretty cool ones for the 710

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.
