    Finally got my hands on the original pre-production battery cover (glossy red from those old blurry photos that we all remember). It also came with the silver camera bezel and some of the internals from the pre-prod model. I'm going to look into retrofitting the rocker buttons and the sleep/wake button this week.

    in my opinion, this is how the phone should have come from the factory, it's just so much more exciting and original!

    Here are the pics!

    That Andriod logo should have been left on the final design....

    I disagree ... the less of that stupid logo the better ... IMO. I try removing it as much as possible throughout the phone. It looks childish to me. I know I am in the minority on this but I am glad it wasnt put on the battery cover.

    I think the back case looks great! Although I'm glad they went with the current design for the speaker opening.

    I can't help to wonder HOW the OP got a hold of that pre-production unit?

    From the link that eyc already posted:

    HTC INCREDIBLE

    Just the back cover is $19.90. The full cover (front and back) is $35.90.

    Too blingy for me. I like things subtle that don't draw attention. I do like the little Android cartoon though and would have enjoyed a faint picture on the back over black.

    Neato. I hated the red back when I first saw it, but it is growing on me now. Probably because I use my phone without the back plate a couple of days a week. Thanks for the photos. I may pick one up.

    Wish they had one for the extended battery. I might even consider going back to the 1500mAH battery to use this thing. Red is my favorite color, and that looks sweet.

    Is there any distortion from the speaker hole being different? And I'm guessing you had to buy both parts to get the silver camera ring?

    That back looks fantastic. I remember when I first saw the red back I didn't like it but looking at this I really like it. May have to ditch the extended battery and pick this up

    I love the Android logo, but hate the red case. Looks like a toy from Toys R Us or something.

    I am not sure I understand... Are you saying that this red back panel does not work on the black production model phone?

    I don't see where this is called pre-production on the site you linked to... It looks like brand new replacement parts.

    Any information you can share is appreciated... I'd love to get the complete front/back red kit.

    ^ it's definitely 100% OEM Parts... before the phone was available the "leaked" shots of the phone were shown with this battery cover. It fits perfectly... no modifications needed to get it to fit.
