Looking for the ultimate way to customize your new CDMA or GSM Galaxy Nexus? How about a new factory replacement battery door with a design of your choosing laser etched on the back of it!? Well, right now over at IndieGoGo (similar to kickstarter), you can do just that. For a mere $45 or $55 pledge (depending on whether you have the standard battery or extended), Omar Trujillo will send you a brand new factory battery door with custom laser etching of your favorite design. Now tell me that wont make your friends envious! There are even pledge options that include a new standard or extended battery as well. One thing to keep in mind though, when thinking of a custom image it must be able to be shrunk down to a 2″ x 2″ square in order for it to fit on the door properly, you’re gonna need to put some thought into this one.
If for some reason you’re not feeling very creative today, you can save 15 bucks and just go with one of Omar’s preselected images instead. The options that are currently available are pretty sweet and any of them would most definitely make your GNex stand out in a crowd. You could chose to go with CyanogenMod’s skateboarding Android, the Talk Android logo, or even a cool plaid-esque pattern of Androids that somewhat resemble Google’s custom Louis Vuitton style battery door.
Omar’s IndieGoGo campaign ends Saturday, March 10th, and he needs $1,250 in order to get his project funded. At the time of this writing he already raised $840 and still has 27 days left before time runs out. If for some odd reason Omar’s IndieGoGo doesn’t reach its goal (very unlikely), all those who pledged will receive a refund and of course will not get the product either. Once he does successfully reach his goal, he will go in to production and will look into doing the same thing for other Android devices. So if you’re feeling left out right now, you never know, your chance could be next!
