    I know people will hate this or love it, but it would be nice if the Nexus were made of "VaporMg" the same material surrounding the Microsoft Surface.

    Actually I think about it, it wouldn't be that hard to replace the back with maybe aluminum, the glass is glued onto a frame so it could probably be done

    Resin impregnated Bocote or Brazillian Cherry that is rubber mounted to the phone. Easy to manufacture and replace and relatively inexpensive.

I understand dropping it, well your on your own there depending if it's a 5 inch drop on your lap or 3 feet+ to the floor... We know Gorilla Glass or not, dropping it will do damage.

    I hope they change the back, but I'm sure now it's too late
    The back is not Gorilla Glass, just the front

    I'd actually be good with either vibranium or Adamantium. I would be particularly interested in a blend so that, when Thor puts his hammer down, I can level several dozen square meters of forest trees and foliage while chatting on my phone.

    Or even texting.

    As a side-note about The Avengers, I would not have minded watching Hulk kill -- however accidentally -- the pilot shooting at him. In that respect and one other, I think his character's physical brute force strength was not fully realized. The other respect is I would have loved to see him literally tear up the plane trying to lift Mjoliner, only for him to be dragged to Earth holding onto it, and then starting to crumble the ground and wreak havoc on Earth's orbit / axial tilt trying to lift it. I know Hulk isn't inherently evil, so he wouldn't threaten to push Earth into the Sun to hold the hammer; but it would be interesting if he accidentally started to go in that direction and that sort of became a lesson to everyone else -- even Thor -- that you just can't trifle with Hulk.

    Cork. Grippy, doesn't scratch easily, renewable, waterproof, and can have a very premium look.
