The plastic option will be there as it is cheaper to produce and still makes viable business sense, at least I think so. I think there is enough users out there (like you mentioned) that want the durability of plastic, albeit, in a different colour. Once RIM taps China, there will be an a whole new market.
Plastic bling, lol..that is tacky. The intended chrome will be made from a light shiney metal. graham53,
Skinning is not the look I want to acheive here, that's more like a hub cap as opposed to a real rim, no pun intended. :D Jase88,
You are right, point taken. Thanks. Dawg,
I'd like to know how that skin worked out for you, keep me posted. greggebhardt,
If you don't mind, what do you think would be a fair price bracket for a red plastic housing, front only?
