Actually doesn't look bad, I think high-grade wood could actually make for a decent phone material. You could sand scratches out of it too.

True. Also: (ab-)used wood looks good imho...

Up to the point of splinters, I agree with you. Wood has that cold, quality feeling that aluminium does, too. That's without being as stupidly easy to wreck as aluminium.

Same here, wood is a quality material. I guess it's too expensive for mass production, or someone would have made a wooden phone by now. I wish my N2 was made of wood now, bamboo seems a good choice, strong, classy and a nice colour (IMO).
