    Hell yeah I would get this. Not sure I would convert the front though. Seems like a lot of work. Now if only we could test the camera and proximity sensor. Also, if you need warranty work, good luck reassembling it.

    The TUAW post says it was accomplished using paint thinner and a standard replacement kit, so you could give it a go!

    Yeah.. I'm not sure if I really care for the front.. the back looks better and would be 10x easier, lol!

    LOL different strokes I guess. I can't even see what looks cool about that? The brushed aluminum back looks way better.

    Agree, lol, seeing the insides of the device looks ugly to me to be honest.

    I'm very fond of the transparent look.

    But, I wonder about finger prints and smudges.

    it would be cool if the apple store would let u pay a little extra and offer you some color options when you bought the phone and do it for u at the store. that would be awesome

    Yeah.. I've always thought Apple would eventually expand the color options by possibly adding a red or blue. But maybe its just wishful thinking?

    Definitely not for me.. It would be super cool if you could see the front of the A4 chip though I would dig it then. Seeing the back of the battery isn't doing it for me though...
