    Any one know of movement on the "shells"? Ordered with the phone when it first came out... Still nothing, past the 28th... Still nothing... If NOKIA couldn't support these - why market it that way. Very irritating!

    They had them in the Nokia store in Dubai. They had red and yellow. I had the red one so I bought the yellow.

    It's probably just a matter of time. The 820 isn't even released here in the Netherlands yet. I think the shells will show up as soon as the 820 is available worldwide. The question is: will third party manufacturers release shells? It would be quite cool if multiple manufacturerers would release glossy/matte shells with new colors and designs. It would instantly make the 820 the most customizable smartphone out there.

    Search - AT&T

    If you search on ATT, "Nokia Wireless" you can get some to appear

    What about the ruggedized ones? And do those come in multiple colors? Does it have wireless charging? Does AT&T sell them?

    Ruggedized Ones have not been released has of yet, No New News on those Since September..Poll on Converstations.Nokia.Com
    Yes come in variety of colors (yellow, green and orange with a black trim)
    Not Sure About Wireless Charging
    Or Who is going to sell them.

    I picked up a white charging shell this weekend in Abu Dhabi Marina Mall for AED 125 (US$33.99) - but no sign of the rugged ones, asked the guy in the Nokia shop and he couldn't give a date...

    Has anyone found/ bought the cyan shell in the UK? I can't seem to find any website offering it quicker than 2 weeks+ to wait.

    Thanks for sharing Solynia, hopefully they will be widely available in the UK soon too.

    Could you let me know if the rugged shell feature wireless charging?

    Well I guess you can order it on amazon.fr it will still be delivered in UK (This is just a guess ! I'm not used to amazon) And, sorry but no wireless charging...

    I can describe it more :
    • there is a piece of foam inside (?) keeping the battery in place
    • the corners and borders are black and made of softer plastic than the yellow part so then can absorb small impacts (so don't thow it or drop it intentionally)
    • the shell is a tiny bit thicker than the original one. Which means, the glass part around the lens won't get scratches from resting on a table
    • the screen borders are black as I said before and higher than the screen itself wich means you can put your L820 on its screen without scratching it. (to avoid waking everyone when you get a toast during the night)

    I'm not sure I made myself understandable, let me know !

    Thank you very much for the info, Solynia! Still waiting for it to release in US.. Does it feel sturdy enough to survive a fall? I wanted to get rid of that additional case which I'm using right now..

    To be honest I'm a bit disappointed. It does not feel really protective. I mean. of course my screen wont get scratches if I'm careful but dropping my L820 from my pocket on concrete will most likely kill it unlike my previous blackberry which survived 2 stairways and a tramway platform... rugged shell is nice if it drops from your sofa maybe... but the look of yellow shell with black borders... ;) worth it

    One more thing: does it provide a good grip?

    What do you mean ? It feels the same as the original shell in my hand.
