Laser-etching the iPhone

We're expecting to see Apple roll out an iPod-esque laser-etching service for the iPhone anytime now, but until then, New Yorkers can stop by Engadget pal Philip Torrone's shop to carve up their phones. Brave customer Dan was first to pony up, and PT set his 35W Epilog laser to 40 percent power and etched in these sweet old-school flying toasters. Interestingly, PT says the back of the iPhone is "nice plastic" and not aluminum, which is news to us. Peep a vid of the crazy-fast laser in action after the break.
