Anyone who saw Phil Nickinson's Google+ photo of the "gorgeous" red custom battery cover for the Galaxy Nexus may have felt some dismay. It was definitely different, somewhat unique but not altogether convincing as a personalisation of your prized phone. Now though, it gets much cooler than that. Laser etched battery covers, and best of all, they'll be official OEM battery covers.
A startup campaign launched through IndieGogo aimed to raise $1,250 to get the project up and running and financially viable. The total so far is in excess of $2,500, so it looks like full-steam ahead. Both stock, and extended battery covers will be available for both the GSM and CDMA versions of the Nexus. There is a small selection of stock designs available, but for a little more of your hard earned, you can have a custom design. The only caveat is that they won't do copyrighted material, and nothing too detailed. The work area is only about 4 square inches in size, so it's not too much to ask to keep it relatively simple.
