ColorWare has been around for a long time and in the beginning, the company mostly offered custom painting services for notebooks and other computers. The company now also offers coloring solutions for all sorts of gadgets today including smartphones.
The latest smartphone to get the ColorWare treatment is the Google Nexus One. The handset can be colored with glossy or soft touch hues to your liking. The company will paint the frame, back, bottom, and camera surround.
Like most handsets the company can paint you can get your own Nexus One panted for $175 or buy handset and all. If you haven't purchased a Nexus One yet, ColorWare will buy it for you and paint it before shipping for $800. Presumably, that would be the no contract version of the handset.
