Here's an idea that they can implement for the next controller model. Notice the line or division between the faceplates and the touchpad.

In that very same curve, close to where the division starts, they can give the faceplates a curved, while lifted edge so that the finger or fingernail can easily fit in the lifted-curved area and lift the faceplates. Similar to some CD players or radios.

Notice how the CD-top is lifted and very slightly curved so that the finger can go in and lift the top.

frankly speaking I hope that OUYA 2 will bring a controller/joypad with a rechargeable built-in battery.
In any case your suggestion will be very useful (different faceplats can help to personalize our controller even if the battery will be built-in)
