Has anyone seen any good descriptions of the whole line of finishes for the Pro iPhones? Not just Midnight Green, which I think I've read is matte, but also Space Gray, Gold and Silver. The pics that were taken at the hands-on after the keynote looked glossy or polished, but it can be hard to tell.

Obviously, I'll get an answer on Friday, but I'm wondering if anyone has seen comments on this - thanks.

Just to be clear, is it the metal bands they're talking about, or the glass on the back? I thought that was the glass.
No idea. The reviewer didn't really specify. There should be more reviews posted soon. I think I noticed a thread with multiple reviews in it, maybe that thread will have your answer.

Glass can still have a coating making it less or more slippery depending on what is used.

All pro’s have the back glass frosted, the camera square glossy and the bands are polished...

For the Pros the glass on back is matte finish but the camera bump is glossy.
