Colorware offers customizing options for iPad 2
Colorware has began offering custom painted iPad 2s, with a configurator now available on the company's website. The rear body can be painted, as well as the Apple logo on the rear and the home button on the front, all independently of each other. There are 21 solid color options, the same amount of metallic hues and four pearl shades to choose from. Either gloss, original or SofTouch finishes are available, with the last adding $10 to the price tag.
The company can sell custom painted iPad 2s for $900 for Wi-Fi versions, or $1,100 for a 3G model, either in black or white on the face. Sending in a user's own iPad 2 for customized paint costs $400. The process is said to take four weeks whether buying a new one or sending in your own. New ones can be shipped internationally, while sending in an iPad 2 can only be done from and to the USA.
