time a hot new gadget comes out, Colorware vomits its candy-colored
paint all over it and charges a huge markup because of it.
They must be
making a lot of money per paintjob, because even though I see lots of
gadgets on the streets, I never see any Colorware products, yet they
still produce them.
The latest victim? Apple’s "jewel” of a smartphone,
which now comes in hundreds of customizable colors for the low, low price of $1700
for the 64GB model. Not only is there no option to order a iPhone with a
smaller amount of storage, but you can’t send your old phone in.
not all bad though, Colorware’s iPhone customizing webapp
offers a glimpse into an alternate universe where iPhones can come in
all kinds of crazy colors, kind of like the iPod Touch. If you’ve got
one that you think is really sweet, share it with us in the comments.
