Winnipeg, MB (PRWEB) November 1, 2007
In what is a large growing consumer segment, consumers are demanding a higher level of customization in the consumer electronic products that they purchase. Skins are one such product that allows for unique levels of user customization previously not available with generically colored consumer electronic portable devices. These skins are low-profile, protective, printed adhesive vinyl stick-ons that are applied to the top of a gadget, and are becoming mainstream to personalize all types of portable electronics, from cell phones, Blackberries, laptops, calculators, game systems, MP3 players, ipods, satellite radios, etc. Skins typically cover the majority of the device, with specific cut-outs for screens, buttons, keys, etc., and will have pictures, designs and color patterns printed onto them. Skins can either be premade or predesigned, where the customer simply selects the device and a generic image, or more importantly customer-designed, where the customer designs all aspects of the skin with their own images and designs, and each one is then manufactured individually.
The following are the 10 most popular devices that consumers are purchasing customer-designed, customized skins for, according to Mytego.com, for the month of October 2007:
1. Ipod Nano
2. Ipod Video
3. Ipod Nano 2
4. Sidekick 3
5. Motorola RAZR V3m
6. Sony PSP
7. Sanyo Katana
8. Nintendo DS lite
9. LG enVX9900
10. Motorola KRZR
This list of devices is compiled, created and released on a monthly basis to indicate the trends of the various devices that consumers are actually using, and those that are shaping the world of customer-designed, personalized skins for portable consumer electronic devices.
What's on your skin? Mytego.com is the only company allowing customers the unique opportunity to design and style their own portable electronic devices to reflect each customer's own tastes and preferences, and stand out from the crowd. Its about personal choices. TEGO™ skins are precision cut, protective vinyl stick-ons that go on easy and come off clean, and are designed to fit exactly to any portable electronics. Any handheld electronic device from laptops, iPods, cell phones, and portable game systems can now have a TEGO™ skin for it, designed by the customer. Now, even other cooler stuff can have custom TEGO™ skins made, including board decks, and console game systems like the Nintendo wii, Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360. Each skin is designed online, in real-time, specifically by the customer, with their own images and designs. Mytego.com then manufactures each one individually, on-demand, and ships them direct to each customer to easily apply it to the outside of their device. In a world full of millions of the same black, white and other limited colors of consumer electronic devices, TEGO™ skins show off the customer's inherent desire to have the power to personalize their own world with their own style.
Sadly, limitations still exist with most skin manufacturers with "premade" off-the-shelf designs as the skin designs have no real relation to what each customer wants or needs to truly reflect their own personal style. There is a significant difference between premanufactured, pre-designed with user designed and created skins; the 'customer-designed' skin. Mytego, is the leader in customer-designed and created skins; they take the design and manufacture of skins one step further with complete customer-designed and personalized skins for their customer's own iPods and other portable electronic devices. Colloquially called the "Tego" skin, mytego provides the on-line tools at mytego.com for all customers to design and create exactly what they want their Tego skin to look like, with absolutely no limitations except that of their own imagination. Users are able to upload images from their own computer or digital camera, use images from the online mytego image library, or create special designs with the online design tools. Mytego then manufactures each one specifically for that person, and ships it promptly to them, after which the customer simply applies it to their device. A Tego skin design reflects the true personal tastes and styles of each and every customer, as they created it entirely themselves. These are the new capabilities of the emerging trend of mass-customization and personalization; the ultimate choice of design and style by every individual person, regardless of what the consumer electronic gadget designer, manufacturer and accessory maker produces.
Mytego.com is based out of Winnipeg, Canada and has licensed operations in Europe. Worldwide distribution of TEGO™ skins is accomplished through a unique, patented online design studio that operates in over 7 languages. Mytego.com is a world leader in innovative, on-demand, mass-customization and has developed a complete patented production system that allows for individual manufacturing with infinite customer choices, with similar economies of traditional mass-production manufacturing where the customer receives very limited or no choices for personalization. Mytego is providing the tools to allow people to distinguish their own devices from the other millions of the exact same devices out there, whether it is an ipod, blackberry, nokia or anything imaginable.
