    Battery cover for bold

    Advertisement



    Is anyone else disappointed that the back of the Bold is a leather type material. When I first saw a picture of the device I loved everything about it until I saw the back. I just wish it was the same material used on the front or even a kind of brushed metal or something cool like that. Maybe I'll feel differently when I actually try it but for now, the idea of a leather back just seems awful.

    I'm pretty sure Seido will have battery covers to replace it with. Looks like they were going for the classy look. I have no problem with the back though

    I have to say I kindof like the faux leather look. But that's just my $.02

    As I understood it the backs have removable "skins", so I am guessing one has the option to go bareback. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    At first when the bold was officially announced I was not a fan of the leatherette backing, but its starting to grow on me, especially with the other colors it comes in!
    Even if you don't like it, not to worry bad designs give 3rd party companies a chance to give the users an alternate choice, nudge nudge seidio

    i think it looks pretty cool, only problem is that with that cover on you dont have the option of painting it

    So far I've heard blue, grey and red. According to this article: http://crave.cnet.com/8301-1_105-9940313-1.html
    RIM will be selling these as interchangable back face plates. I'm not sure about other companies such as Sedio though.

    But I've read other articles that said more colors, so I'm not too sure. I can't find the other article at the moment.
