White Vibrant Skin and Paint Mod

If you own a Samsung Vibrant but want to stand out from the crowd, have a look at the skin and paint mod that XDA forum member juggamonkey has applied to his Vibrant.

The XDA member has applied a white skin to the front of the Android device, painted the back cover white and applied an Android logo decal on the back.

The white skin was taken from a decal kit purchased on eBay, and the back was sprayed using some krylon plastic spray paint in high gloss white.  The surface was prepped by sanding with fine sandpaper then applying three coats of the krylon spray paint.  The XDA member states that thirty minutes to an hour of drying time betweens coats is necessary plus a clear coat which provides some grip to the device.

For more pics and information on how to apply the mod yourself, check out the modification thread.

Huawei: A Giant the Western World Should Look Out For

The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
