Homer Simpson on Pearl

Looking for a way to personalize your boring old phone? A new product called a Coveroo replaces the original back cover of your mobile device with a customized cover featuring laser-etched artwork.

The service offers more than 250 designs from brands including the Beatles, AC/DC, Madonna, Star Trek, Family Guy, and Barbie, to name a few.

Here, a BlackBerry Pearl features Homer Simpson. If Homer's not your favorite Simpsons character, you can opt for Apu, Bart, Mr. Burns, or Waylon Smithers, among others.
