Nexus 5 to get customizable covers with Google Workshop

Google will soon be launching a tool called Google Workshop to customize its Nexus devices with personalized back covers according to newly leaked info.

The folks over at Android Police have managed to grab exclusive information about Google's upcoming project which would let users create personalized back covers for Nexus devices such as the Nexus 5 smartphone and the Nexus 7 tablet.

It has been revealed that the tool, currently known as Google Workshop, is an experimental project from the company and is currently being targeted particularly for the Nexus 5 smartphone. It is not known when the tool will launch for the public and which devices it will eventually support, as of yet.

The designs available internally are quite interesting and lively considering Google's slightly laid back design choices. The two broad themes that have been revealed by Android Police include "MapMe" and "Moments." As the name suggests, MapMe, has location specific design options while Moments includes some day-to-day pleasant scenes.

With other tools such as Moto Maker, the customization is limited to the outer casing, however, in case of Google Workshop, the back covers will be complemented by software customizations such as live wallpapers which would match the color schemes and overall theme.

Further customisation choice is great, as already said, hope it's available to all. The nexus 5 for me remains one of the best mobile phones I've ever owned.

A bit too late for nexus 5, as I am not going to buy it ever again, after using my old one for a while, but a good idea. can't wait to see what they do with nexus 6.
