    Why does Palm not sell custom covers for the Pre? I would like to have a custom designed touchstone back. For some reason they've already developed them for a phone that won't come out for months, but they never considered doing something like this for existing Pre customers? I don't get it.

    I think it comes down to marketing demographics. The pre is more of a higher end (corporate type - seen to be / expected to be / assumed to be more mature) user targeted phone while the pixie is youth targeted.

    This is fairly easy to solve, yourself, anyway. Buy some stickers and decorate your Pre exactly how you want it.

    Do people believe that designs are ONLY youth oriented? I'm sure Palm could come up with a tasteful design with more subtle colors that would appeal to business people.

    My girlfriend is going to get a Pre, and she would probably like something more girly. More to the point, I would just like to tell our phones apart without turning them on.

    And, no, I don't want to put stickers on my phone.

    Exactly. It's called vinyl, look online for "skins" or "wraps" for the pre.

    I know decalgirl.com has about 30 designs ready to go for the front and back. FYi their wraps do not disable the gesture area, my girlfriends laptop is wrapped and the vinyl goes right over the touchpad and it works perfectly like nothing was even there.

    Personally i like the backs of the pixie designs. Would be cool to see some of those carried over for the pre!

    Not gonna lie, that is pretty cool. Though definitely not understated.

    Yeah a little to flashy for me... I mean I enjoy the slim black device how it is, but sometimes it's nice to have a change. It definitly covers up surface scratchs on the back.

    I wonder if they work with the touchstone.. I bet they do as their so thin and the gesture area still works.

    No problem, their vinyl is great to! I have my xbox, wii, ps3 slim, mine and my girlfriends laptops wrapped with their products, never an issue and we get compliments all the time. None on the pre though... but i'm considering it.

    Plus I think they can do custom work to... so thats another option since they have the templates.
