Mari and I recently took a look at Skinit’s line of gadget decals. Which are less about device protection and more about personalization. I skinned a buddy’s Droid with some urban camouflage ($15), while she skinned her netbook with the dastardly Duke Blue Devils ($20).
Our results were a bit mixed. The Droid skin job was excellent – no problem applying the 5 perfectly cut decals, which resulted in a slick looking handset. But Mari’s netbook experience left us a bit puzzled. It wasn’t quite clear which side of the skin was up, given hinge cutouts (?) that didn’t line up with anything, and we observed some crinkling on the edges. It’s possible we ordered the incorrect netbook model skin or the wrong one was sent out. (And Asus doesn’t help the situation with a multitude of similarly named model variations.)
Regardless, our skins were on the house for purposes of blogging. As yours will be. If you’d like to take Skinit for a spin, and they support tons of devices with tons of designs, simply leave a comment letting us know what sort of gadget you plan to adorn. We’ll randomly choose one winner in a few days.
Update: We’ve heard back from the Skinit folks. And do indeed have Mari’s Duke skin upside down in the photos. Although she did place it both ways, and neither looked exactly right. We’ll try another and blog the results.
