Wouldn't one of these be awesome? Maintain the stunning look of the M8, while adding protection? Sign me up. How do we get one made guys?

Sure, because it isn't slippery enough already.

Ever held a Nexus 4 or iPhone 4? Both have glass backs. They feel great. Glass is only more slippery than the brushed aluminum if you holding your phone with soapy hands. In that case, dry your hands.

I highly doubt that this will be possible. Putting tempered glass on a screen is one thing, but trying to put it on a curved brushed metal surface is another. If someone can pull it off then major respect to that person...

won't happen, the curved edges will never stay down, my g2 had curved edges on its screen and every glass protector had to be cut short of those edges because the edges of the protector never stuck
