Colorware Adds Visual Spice to iPods, Better Scratch Protection For iPod Touch

We've covered Colorware's professional gadget painting in the past—and were more than satisfied after seeing their work close up, but their latest iPod coloring seems to be more than just cosmetic. The iPod Touch 2G color-coats the shiny silver metallic back with a color layer, which most likely handles fingerprints and scratches better than the original surface. They also paint iPod Nano 4G and iPod Classic as well as iPhone 3G, so you've got options on those devices as well. The process is not all that cheap ($125 to send yours in), but it's definitely worth it considering that they do a great job and you'll be using these gadgets for years. [Colorware]
