Telecom has launched a new device personalisation service skinit.co.nz.

To quote their website:

"These high quality vinyl SKINS are EASY TO APPLY and removable. They look like a faceplate, but go on over your mobile device's original housing as a label. When you get bored with your SKIN, simply peel it off and put on a new one. SKINS can be made for almost anything: Phones, iPods , Gaming Devices, PDAs and Notebook Computers and loads more devices. We have 100's of SKIN designs in stock or you can DESIGN YOUR OWN SKIN by uploading a personal photo, graphic or corporate logo. The possibilities for custom cell phone Skins are now endless!"

Check it out....

Interesting... They even have skins for the HTC Apache. I wonder how the Geekzone logo would look on that...

They advertised this job a short time back... This brings back memories of the "Pulsate" 5120i phones in their pill capsules, and Ericsson 1228di with stick on "skins"... Good old pulsate was a youth brand, Was bl00dy awesome till they bailed it and bought into "boost"... Many ideas stemmed from the experiment, like Wap, Wordup, Skins, Web-TXT, Email-Mobile, Swapups, SMS mesaging and.....

SMS from 025 to 021 was first launched on Pulsate, SMS's sent to an email server then sent to a provider in the UK, making Vodafone finally scare and come to a proper arrangement.

Saw the machine that cuts stensils etc today.... Very High quality product, (3M) Very nice colours... and fits phones well. I thought it would be a tacky thing but am very wrong.. I like the Laptop ideas, Mine's UGLY!

I like the "tested for over 4 years bit" which was the original Pulsate "tattoo" skins on the Ericsson 1228Di in 2000

Do they do laptops as well? I might have a look at this then. Perhaps change the look on my tablet PC, just for fun...

They only do Apples at this point,, Laptops would be a good market, Imagine company branded laptops, like walking billboards.
They would look awesome anyway as there's not much visually cool you can do to a laptop!

Something i'll suggest to the guy this coming week I think. They also need more Ipod and mp3 player skins and some for GSM phones

Also just noticed,, this product is not unique!!!!!! (and buntys link above is broken)

Great Idea but you could do this yourself with a colour printer like teashirt printing, but hey great idea all for a new buisness idea.

You COULD do it , just like to T-Shirt transfers, and have it turn to a sticky mess 8 washes later..Tongue out

I'd rather leave that to the pros, I wonder HOW you could do it yourself though? putting your laptop in there would make a bit of a mess and might void a warranty (or two)

Though how abut iron on tansferringa T-shirt transfer to a lap-top-lid... hmmm.. I might have to try that!

Thats funny.

You can even try vinyl wall paper for your laptop ha ha that would be interesting. Explain that on your warranty claim!

Yeah you must be able to buy the vinyl sticky sheet and print in it as thats what they are doing but as you said for a few bucks cheaper to just buy it.

For a moment I though I'd regret clicking your link, seeing the alt tag for it. But it's a laugh actually, if you know the reference...

Anyway, I am getting a couple of these for my Apache and to publish a review here on Geekzone. Stay tuned - from selection to using, including ordering experience...
