I am pretty sure that nokia won't send a model of theirs...

It seems that 3d scanner is the only real option in order to make the model
right straight from the beginning, those surfaces are damn hard to measure
exactly with traditional tools (just tried). And only way to make things
right without 3d scanner would be modelling, having the model made and
seeing if it fits. If not, then back to the "drawing board" and start
working with next iteration...
