Palm Pixi Upping the Game with Customizable Covers

One thing we don't want lost in all this Palm Pixi shuffle: the Palm Pixi's customizable back covers are really stunning, well designed, and hopefully won't cost an arm and a leg.  Palm is starting with 5 limited-edition back covers from California artists and they look to be a great way to make the Pixi more fun and unique.

Each cover was custom-made for the Pixi and features the artitst's name and signature on the inside. Even better - all of the custom covers will be Touchstone-compatible, so you don't have to give up functionality for your bling. Sometime soon Palm will have more information on the artists and designs at

What do you think: Gimmick to rake in more money (can't blame cash-poor Palm for trying) or truly fun and cool feature?
