    I was hoping they release a upmarket version of this phone or like a porsche 9984 where the metal is gold and the back is leather. nothing sexier than glass, metal and leather combo.
    or hopefully someone make a leather back cover for our phone with NFC

    every time i pick up my phone, i cant help but to notice that something is missing from the good old days like where the Flagship Bold had leather backing.
    I was just about to post a thread yesterday ... asking about the Glass Weave for Passport.
    Does ANY company make this or is the patent exclusive to BlackBerry being able to produce it.

    I think a LOT of us, as in Thousands of us need to make this request for BB to consider taking returns to change the backing for a small $fee.

    Glass weave!! If the material that now is not so easily stained.. it would be okay. But as many have reported, they have some issues.

    Yeah. I think they should make the Passport with leather back. It would look nice.

    The material feels ok and I would accept it if it wouldn't have all these marks. It's driving me crazy...

    True. It's not yet a month, yet I've found a mark on the top of my device. I don't know how it got there. It's like dent. Maybe it's caused by the hard shell case.

    Ok ... so which aftermarket manufacturer can:

    A) produce quality Glass Weave back (in full 2 parts) in volume
    B) would be authorized by BlackBerry to do so - as not to void warranty: reaching on this here.
    C) can do this quickly with minimal delay without having a phone - or purchase it custom fitted as a NEW device straight?!

    Colorwave? Whom else?

    Maybe I don't have greasy hands, my passport doesn't show anything on the back.

    I am concerned about the camera lens on the back. I just bought a case and I hope that will provide a "lip" around the glass because I don't know what will prevent it from getting scratched & smudged all the time by simply laying it down.

    I put on the armorsuit full body shield last night and it looks amazing! It gives the back of the phone a dark black glossy almost glass like look and feel (9900). Right now so far it looks to be staying on but I work at a door factory full of sawdust particles so we will see how long it will stay on.

    I like the feel and weight of the one on my Passport but I really dislike how it gets 'smudged' really easy

    Would love a leather back for the Passport although I do like the feel of my z10 as well. Not a big fan of the material used for the q10 back - looks and feels cheap.

    Posted via CB10 on my Z10!

    I don't have an issue with stains and smudges unless my hands are really oily, this isn't my issue. My issue is the damn stain around the logo that won't come off no matter what I do.
