    here is a quick review of the Skinomi Surface 3 skin available here. i wanted something that would stop the S3 from being scratched and i stumbled across these skins. the plan is to use one of these and a glass screen protector when they become a bit less expensive.

    I ordered the silver carbon fiber pattern because its a similar color to the silver magnesium finish.

    pros:
    - added grip
    - easy to apply
    - high quality material

    cons:
    - looks a little cheesy (depends on your taste it has grown on me a bit)
    - screen protector looks horrible.

    Overall I really like this skin but I purchased it with the plan of not suing the screen protector. and after applying the screen protector and using it for a few days I could not stand it. it looked bad and felt to grippy for a touch screen device.


    if you guys have any other questions on it let me know. simple review for a simple skin. ill let you know how it holds up over time.

    It does look pretty sharp. Moving this to accessories.

    Cool. Skins are great but for the basic, I'll have a screen protector one that's really really decent.

    Given the dimensions of the SP Pro 4, other than possibly the left side of the SP 4, I think the SP Pro 3 version of this would work as a stopgap for the SP4 Pro until everyone comes out with updated skins. Want to skin mine as soon as I receive it as I'll be in motion from the moment it arrives.

    Thoughts?
