Motorola Moto G replacement shells arrive in the U.S.; shipping starts December 2nd
If you thought that you just saw some nut on a horse galloping past your window, screaming that "The Shells are coming, the Shells are coming," don't start calling for help. It just might have been some modern day relative of Paul Revere announcing that the replaceable back shells for the Motorola Moto G are on the way. The phone itself can now be ordered from Motorola, online.

Claiming that there is a colored Shell for every mood, Motorola is offering 7 different versions of this simple replacement cover. The colors are chalk, black, violet, royal blue, turquoise, lemon lime and cherry. The Shells are priced at $14.99 and will ship starting on December 2nd. If you seek more protection for the screen (it is Gorilla Glass, by the way), the Flip Shells offer the same replacement back Shell, but also include a cover that you can flip around the front of the device to protect the screen. Available in the same 7 colors as the Shells are, this accessory is priced at $29.99 each.

Lastly, there are the Moto G Grip Covers. These won't be ready to ship until January, and are similar to the Shells except for the added rubber on the side. This not only allows you to have a better grip on the phone, it also absorbs impacts better for those times when the enhanced grip doesn't work. We don't have any idea yet what these might be priced at, but they will be available in 5 colors, royal blue, lemon lime, cherry, chalk and black.

I think $30 is a bit too steep considering the phome itself is $180. Compare the price of the cover % wise to the full retail price. I think $24.99 would be a lot more reasonable and I'm sure they still have a huge profit margin. Maybe add the back covers at a deal 3 for $30.
