After wprob's post about getting a Lumia 810 only in black and then the unboxing video that was posted the other day, I'm starting to worry that there may only be black available. I really want to get it in cyan. Also, the specs page on Nokia's website shows only black as an available color. It wouldn't be a deal breaker that would prevent me from getting the phone, but it would suck if I could only get black because I've had a black iPhone for the past year and a half. :( Anyone have any info from their T-Mobile store about cyan being available as well? If it's not, then that really sucks because they kept saying from the beginning that we'd have a choice between those two colors.

in regards to this post, though, I can't imagine why the charging cover would add more bulk to the device. there's plenty of room under the hood if you take out the soft "shim" attached to the back cover between the cover and the battery. I suppose we'll see. :)

Unfortunately the wireless charging cover does add bulk. Google lumia 810 hands on and look for the CNET hands on by Jessica Dolcourt. There you will see pics of the Lumia 810 in a black stock cover where the camera is flush with the cover and in the cyan wireless cover where you can see the camera is recessed and not flush with the door. Sorry I would post the link but I am running out the door now.

I had no idea the other shells would be sold separately. Bummer. I hope they have the cyan one available at the T-Mobile store when I go on Wednesday. Also planning on going to the Queens Center Mall tomorrow, where they're supposed to have a Nokia stand/kiosk, so if I'm lucky, maybe I can just get the phone and shell there.

I went into the Tmo store to check out the 810 a day early. Happen to run into a Nokia rep going over some stuff with the tmo salespersons. She let me play with the 810 and i asked her about the availability of colors for the shells. She showed me a booklet (perhaps only the sales ppl have access to it) and it had a variety of colors we are familiar with. I can't remember all the colors now as she briefly showed it to me but yellow was in there. prob red and white too. She said to make sure I buy back covers that are NFC capable as well. I guess not all of them are...? But i just want you to know I saw them with me own eyes! I had posted a similar topic a while back, glad to see they are a reality! She also said something about Hurricane Sandy delaying shipments from Asia. Not sure how that makes sense....
