The pink iPods are available online only. As previously reported on iLounge, ColorWare offers custom painted iPods and other electronics. The company allows customers to pick between 24 standard colors and several color combinations. iPod nanos are available directly from ColorWare for $65 over retail, and 5G iPods for $75 over retail.

Gayest ipod ever….

Of all colors why pink? And why did they solely choose pink?
Do they really think that this will attract customers; iPods are already freakin expensive as heck! You can just buy a colored case for a lot cheaper, if you truly need a different color.

icantpod: So, football (or “soccer”) players are gay now? I’d like to see you try to keep playing after some guy rams his feet right into your achilles heel at 30Mph, let alone stand up! And I like that colour scheme, as far as flamboyantly pink colour schemes can be liked. I hope they whip something like that out, but maybe in football team colours, at Curry’s- they’d make a killing.

I guess the point of having a different colored ipod is to outcast yourself from the majority of people who own white/black ipods. Still, I wouldn’t mind having a pink ipod but I wouldn’t pay more than I have to.

The thing I find more interesting is that they’re selling essentially a modded iPod.  It’s one thing for an individual buyer to decide to buy such an item but for a big named store like Target to sell it seems weird.  The color mod doesn’t void the warranty does it?

You guys are all stupid. If you don’t like the pink ones, go to colorware.com and order one that you like. You can only order it from target online abyway…

Oh yeah, yes there is still a warranty…

You get a bit more than just color with this modded pod…. It’s actually a automotive quality paintjob with an extra protective clearcoat.  You could use the paintjob instead of all those crappy films or plastics, its def worth the extra cash.

But is it worth $80 - $90 over retail?

Dennis…...............

Take a lesson from Target, and sell us iPod-aholics an “iLounge” iPod.

Are you sick of hearing this from me yet?

Yes it is the gayest ipod ever, but when I first saw it I thought it was to spread breast cancer awareness, a good cause.  But after reading the details, it seems to be true: the gayest ipod ever…LOL.

“I dont see why Target is selling a Pink iPod. Their color is red…”

Exactly.  Why pink?  And red would be a much better choice because it would appeal to both guys and gals.

Pink electronics are a trend right now…and target is all about aesthetic trends. Guys are easy to sell ipods too, we’re technoaddicts a lot of us, women not as often. I know 7-10 guys besides myself with ipods, and one woman.  They pink Razor has really taken off and even though I wouldn’t want one I think making a pink ipod is brilliant marketing.  My wifes cell phone is a pink sprint phone.  Besides, face it, most of us guys would just get the black one even if there was a whole rainbow of colors to pick from.  Same goes for pink with a lot of ladies.

“icantpod: So, football (or “soccer”) players are short.be now? I’d like to see you try to keep playing after some guy rams his feet right into your achilles heel at 30Mph, let alone stand up!”

Jeez, try to have a sense of humor, stupid as my “joke” was.  And please don’t try to tell me soccer is a rough sport.  IT IS NOT. Ooh, kicked in my shin! Owee! Come on.

If you are too poor to afford an iPod (even the colored ones), then get a better job.

doesn’t seem to make much sense to sell it only online if they can buy it from colorware for 15 bucks less… and in any colour combo they want.

let me be the first guy to say that the pink looks pretty hot though. not sure if i’d buy it though. i wear pink shirts, but i don’t use pink electronics.
