ColorWare custom iPhones
ColorWare, famous for creating and selling custom-painted iPods and Zunes, has now turned its attentions to the iPhone. Shoppers can pick from a variety of solid and metallic colors for virtually any aspect of their phone, from the frame and back, to the earbuds and Apple logo. Each part is manually disassembled and painted using a hybrid technique, which ColorWare says is half-borrwed from the automotive industry. The company further has two purchase options: buyers can order a new, pre-painted phone, or send in their existing one for the cost of $150 plus shipping. New 4 and 8GB ColorWare iPhones cost $650 and $750, respectively.
