PDA Jacket Skins for the Pocket PC
Scroll down for the pics or read some ramblins'.
you read the Pocket
PC Phone newsgroups, you're likely to see the following "The paint on
my Pocket PC is coming off". Some people have units which seem to have a
predisposition to the paint rubbing off. I don't, but I feel y0' pain
folks. That said, we've always said get a case from EB Cases or Vaja, the
included one is crummy and the metal clips on the inside scratch the phone
(sorry, it's true). There's also another option besides a case, protective
(and colorful) skins from PDA Jacket.
The folks from PDA Jacket
make lots of skins for many PDAs. what are they? They're kinda like
stickers for the Pocket PC. We ordered Orange, Black, Blue, Purple and
Yellow- check the site (links at the end of this review) for more color
options there are TONS.
Application: You need a steady hand to
apply these, I unfortunately am about as steady as Catherine Hepburn after
an all night Starbucks bender, so you might want to grab a glass of wine
to "settle down" first if you know what I mean. If you're good at pulling
on screen protectors, then these won't be that hard to apply (if you mess
up, then expect some bubbles and seams). The web site shows you how, make
sure yo read
There's also a lid, we didn't use itthis round since we
have a screen protector. Stay tuned, when we put it on our device, we'll
post it up.
Overall, these puppies are pretty sweet, our Pocket PC
Phone is not only protected, it's slightly less slippery but the lead
story is you can personalize your Pocket PC Phone just like other phones
with face plates, cept' these are stickers. Remember, once these are put
on the device, that's it, you can't take them off and put them on again,
so they're one-time only.
Here's a suggestion for T-mobile (and
anyone else) phone are part of our lives, they're perhaps the most
pervasive piece of technology most of us will have, please make every
phone customizable inside and out, faceplates to dialers to caller id, to
ring tones. Oh, another thing T-Mobile- where heck are my freaking
accessories I ordered 2 months ago? I love ya'll (and Zeta is dreamy) but
really, I just want my stuff before 2003, thanks.
Back to the
skins, should you get them? Sure, they're cheap ($7 or so) they protect
your Pocket PC phone, and if you were the type of kid that put stickers on
your bike, then these are pretty cool.
