    I've heard it's gray beneath but mine hasn't been scratched enough in the 2 months I've had it to know for sure!

    Had mine a few months, Artic (the most popular) and the color doesn't fade. It is real solid. I don't use a holster or case. Just naked w/ no scuffs or fading. What were we talking about again??

    I can attest that after dropping mine that the graphite seems to be all the way through and not just paint.

    Just naked? not even a bestskinsever or invisibleshield? it's my precious, how can i not protect it more? Besides such a skin makes it more shiny. I cant wait to see my Copper in bestskinsever. In bluetooth i'm going to call it my name + goldbar ;-) my precious (it's okay to think of Gollum in the lord of the rings

    Mine is crimson, so far ... so good. I have only had it since December. I just ordered one of those Seidio clear cases to help protect it.

    What is Bestskinever ?

    It appears to be an anodized aluminum shell case. It seems almost like the same material as the iPod Minis and Nanos are made out of.

    Geeze, don't you ever search before asking questions? You've posted a number of questions like this the past few days (ones that could have been answered with a simple search).

    BestSkinsEver is a thin, transparent film that you apply to your Treo's exterior to protect it. Kind of like those clear bras for cars.

    All colors (crimson, artic, graphite, and copper) are painted on grey plastic. Just turn around the batt. cover to see the real color. Can't image if you ever do it.

    Mine is solid colored plastic which would be the cheapest way to manufacture this products.

    There are parts inside that are gray since it's also makes sense to minimize the number of colors produced and make the unseen common parts only one color. The color parts are definitely NOT painted. Why would anyone producing in these quantities add a painting step which would increase the cost by a very significant amount.
