You can remove the speaker grille and swap it for a different colored one. Pure says you can choose from "Dazzling Blue, Radiant Orchid, Mango, and Cayenne."

At the back of the Jongo T4 is an Ethernet port as an alternative to the built-in Wi-Fi, a line-in, and a USB port for updating the software.
