My old BBHub colleague Melissa Oxendale, who I hired back when I ran that entity for AOL, has surfaced at PDAStreet.
Mel's out with a review of some BlackBerry Pearl skins. Her review doesn't focus on specifically named skins but with her visual impressions of skins-on-device.
"To start off with, these skins ($9.99) do not cover the keys nor the screen," she writes. "If you want the display covered, a screen protector will be needed. Although I was using a case that covered the Pearl before - with plastic for protection - I found I can type much better with the bare keys under my fingers."
"As for the skins, protection really aren't their forte; they don't really protect the tender parts: screen, buttons, keys, or camera," she adds. "They basically takes a black or silver Pearl and gives it a different hue."
Mel likes that the skins she chose don't slide around the frame of the Pearl. But then she does add that the non-slide skins,..."can be a little tougher to get in and out of one's pocket, especially tight ones as we ladies often have. This can be nice, no worries about the Pearl falling out, but can be a pain when trying to get the Pearl out fast to answer a call."
