You may not have heard of Coveroo, a mobile phone accessory company, but they’re what’s left of Wallop, a now-defunct social network, that, once dissolved, triggered CEO Karl Jacob to put his money into a new aspect of personalization – that being to personalize the devices we all carry around everyday.
From that came Coveroo, and it’s current lineup of more than 3,000 designs for any and all mobile devices, from Androids, Blackberries and iPhones, to Nokias, Motorolas or Samsungs. You can pick from these established designs, giving nods to television shows, sports teams, movies, toys, video games, phrases, particular characters and so on, or you can design your own case, making your phone truly your own.
To support this venture, which started around 18 months ago, Tech Crunch is reporting that the company has raised $2.3 million in Series B funding, led by Rembrandt Venture Partners. What exactly do they plan to use this money on? Currently, one of the biggest things is a Coveroo Kiosk, that could be placed inside electronics retailers, that would let customers customize their devices on the spot.
