Most people on this list will require some kind of image of the final
case to say for sure, but in theory, yes I would be interested. You
mentioned having made designs for the case. Would it be possible to
have a contest to produce the coolest design? That in no way implies
that your design wouldn't be interesting but there are many people,
including myself, who would invest time creating possible case designs.
  Can you be more specific as to the overall shape? Is it the exact
same as the existing case?

Subject: [NTLK] [Poll] Custom Newt Case

Ok, I have put a lot of thought, and design planning into this, and
wanted some general input on it.
I am working on casting a new, custom case (case case, like housing
case, not a fabric caring case) for my newton, and have pretty much
tracked everything down, but have not ordered a thing yet. I was
interested in a couple details first...

First off, which is a better colouring scheme?
I have designs made up for a bondi/tang/lime (think orig ibook),
as well as an all white, high gloss (icebook) theme.

Secondly, would anyone consider buying one of these (assuming it
worked, was durable enough, etc)?
It is probably going to cost me a good bit, and I would probably need
to charge close to $100 for a case. Is this economical for anyone out
there? or should I try to raise (i wish) or lower it?

TIA for all the input I know I am going to get ;)
