Forget girl-oriented phones, says iFixit, just slap a $50 mirrored back panel on the iPhone 4/4S
Cell phone makers have been trying to make girl-oriented handsets since the dawn of wireless times with little success. Perhaps because no sane woman likes to be segregated carrying a pink phone with Hello Kitty motifs, as most of these efforts are. 

Even one of the latest such efforts, the HTC Rhyme, doesn't bring much to the feminine table, and it is not even wearing pink. Our favorite dismemberment team from iFixit, however, has the perfect solution - just slap a mirror on the back of an iPhone 4/4S. Seriously, they will be offering a mirrored back in the next few weeks, with which you can replace your standard panel, for the cool sum of $49.95.

The replacement procedure for the mirrored back is the same as the one for the transparent cover that iFixit already sells, meaning that it involves a P2 screwdriver and some disassembly skills. Now, if they can also fit a Swiss Army Knife and a lighter inside, it will be the ultimate unisex gadget.
