    What is the N1's body made of?

    Ok, this one is a silly "techie" question I know. But being a "techie", I just had to ask......What is the body of the N1 made out of? The material, I mean?

    A friend showed me an article on another website, and the article said that the body was made out of either a metal or some metal hybrid with teflon mixed into it. The thought was that the body material was going to give the N1 a superior resistance to scratching. My buddy then showed me a pair of videos of a guy scratching at his N1 with car keys. There seemed to be little if any damage or scratching to the N1's body, or even it's screen.

    Does anyone know what material the body of the N1 is really made out of? Is there a special Teflon coating on the phone's body, and is there any special coating on the screen itself?

    Don't be ridiculous...it's construction-grade imaginite. I specify the stuff in building design all time. :P

    OK...all kidding aside, the main enclosure housing is a machined aluminum unibody with an scratch-resistant (note, not scratch-proof) teflon coating. The rest of the body (dark gray) is plastic with a "soft touch" coating. The glass has no coating at all, but shouldn't scratch if you mind the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohs_scale_of_mineral_hardness"]Moh's scale[/ame].
    Just avoid everything contact with everything harder than 6 on that scale and you should be good! If you're concerned about glass scratches, a screen protector may afford some added protection...there's a number of these out there:

    ScreenPatronus, Mobile Phone Screen protector - the difference is amazing.
    ZAGG | invisibleSHIELD | Google Nexus One Cases, Screen Protectors, Covers, Shields, Skins, Invisible Shield
    BodyGuardz for Google Nexus One - BodyGuardz | Skins, Screen Protectors, Covers, Shields, Cases, Clear, Film
    Google Nexus One Skin
    New Arrivals - Nexus One
    Nexus One Screen Protector / Google Nexus One Screen Protector / Nexus One Screen Cover / Google Nexus One Screen Cover / Nexus One Screen Film - ClearTouch Anti-Glare
    Nexus One Screen Protector / Google Nexus One Screen Protector / Nexus One Screen Cover / Google Nexus One Screen Cover / Nexus One Screen Film - ClearTouch Crystal
    HTC Google Nexus One Screen Protector from Clarivue
