    I'd love to know this too! If anyone knows, that'd be great. When I find out, I'll add it to my iPod touch Reference.

    I heard it was made out of the same glass as a windshield to prevent scratching or cracking. Does anybody know if the back is stainless steel or is the weight caused by electronics

    Yeah, but auto glass?

    i believe the weight is caused by the internal components. If the back were stainless, it wouldn't scratch so easily.

    I believe polished stainless would scratch quite easily but it would be very strong

    I've got a polished stainless grill set and they've slid along the table, etc., all the stupid stuff that scratches an iPod's back, and there's not a single mark on them.
