ColorWare is offering Apple’s latest iPods—the enhanced fifth-generation iPod and second-generation iPod nano—in a rainbow of custom painted colors. The company says the 5G iPods are available in 24 standard colors, and the new nano can be ordered in one of 28 standard colors. Customers can also pick from “thousands of color combinations.” ColorWare is selling the custom painted iPods for $75 over their retail prices. The 30GB iPod sells for $325 and the 80GB model for $425, while the 2GB nano sells for $225, the 4GB model for $275 and the 8GB nano for $325. ColorWare also offers a service that lets you send in your iPod to have it colored in the hue of your choice for $64 to $84.

I got my Colorware Edition 80 GB yesterday to replace my trusty 3G 40GB.  Looks good!  Only problem (and serious at that!) is the static/white noise compared to my 3G version. Really annoying!  Does anybody else here have this problem?  Simply pause both iPods, switch phone jacks and compare the noise levels on various volume settings.

Hopefully new firmware can correct this in the future?

It’s a cool idea, but i don’t really like the glossiness and, most of all the sparkley bits.

I think it is rather humorous that they offer black and white as colors…a bold side step from the original coloring.

THey offer Black and White because they paint things other than iPods that are not readily available in those colors.
