    Hi, I was wondering, does anyone know what the rim around the glass front/back that it sits in is made of? between the glass and the steel. It's hard to tell form the pics. Hard plastic maybe?

    well I know in between the glass and the chrome on 3GS there's this black soft stuff.. no idea what it actually is, probably something to help the materials stick together. Or maybe it's part of the antenna..
    No idea exactly what it is.

    Its made of some special material , I think it's some kind of ceramic and glass, engineered to be highly resistant to damage including cracks and scratches. I believe there was a patent revealed a few months ago and it was filed maybe a few years prior.

    He's not talking about the front and back, he's talking about the material between the glass and the steel.
