    I don't think its possible. Housings for pda's a much more complicated than for phones because of the buttons/keys. So far, I have not heard of anyone selling housings for such devices.
    They only way you can change the look is to add a case. Silicone cases come in various colors and add little to the thickness. There are some leather form fitting cases as well.

    An alternative is to take the device apart yourself and paint it. This is extremely risky and immediately voids your warranty. I've done it on a pda I've owned.

    Or you can use skins. www.skinit.com

    There is a thread about this, but for the Treo 600. The front is the only part available though. I believe somebody linked to it in the other thread. It was selling for $20 on ebay. Do a search and you'll probably find what I am talking about.

    BTW, my point was that if it's available for the 600 now, it'll probably be available for the 650 soon.

    Yes, this would be cool since I'd like a different look once in a while.

    Skinit only covers the front 100%, sides zero, and back 45%. I liked the idea, but when installed it looked crappy from any view other than straight on from the front. I took it all off. $12 experiment that failed.

    If you're in the Los Angeles area, I'll trade my case with yours. I have an unlocked/silver case.

    I know what you mean. There was no way I was buying that funky blue-colored Sprint Treo 650. So I dropped Sprint and bought an unlocked GSM Treo 650 in the fetching chrome and silver casing!

    Actually there are two Treo 650 housings for sale on ebay.
    Search for: Treo 650 housing
    Note: I'm not the seller.

    I like the stone category from SkinIt, but not for a Treo, but for those PPC Bricks!

    And I use a silicon case from Brando, that will hide your Treo case quite well.

    try here

    maybe the cases can be used to replace the existing one, i was thinking of ordering one to try

    im waiting for a cingular or palmone branded one though

    ive got a new/silver housing on the way to replace the gaudy cingular one. Are the cases exactly the same in regards to screw placement and the general removal of the case compared to the 600? I found the directions on how to remove the housing on the 600 HERE

    Im wondering if it is any different and if anyone has actually done this on their 650 and can give a list of the tools they used. Especially which torx driver to use.
