Review: iSkin for the BlackBerry + Giveaway!
I have done reviews for quite a few accessories, including skins, pouches and leather holster/cases. While wanting to give your beloved BlackBerry every bit of protection it needs from drops & scrapes, you don't ever want to add the extra bulkiness. The OEM BlackBerry skins are nice, and take it from me, they protect pretty good, but if you are looking for the ultimate protection in a skin, you should look no further than iSkin.
iSkin currently makes skins for the 8900, 9000 and 9500/9530. The Curve 8900 iSkin is available in two different styles (Vibes & Vibes FX) while the 9000 Bold and 9500/9530 Storm (Vibes) has one style to choose from. Each style comes in an assortment of bright colors, including purple, black, lime green and orange!
The skins are made of a flexible, environmentally safe and odor-free material that resists impacts, abrasions and tears. Another added feature is the built-in earphone, sync port and button protection to keep them safe from everyday hazards (see screenshot). And unlike other skins/cases for the BlackBerry, the iSkin Vibes and Vibes FX feature a clear, durable camera and flash guard to shield against impact from accidental drops. As with the iPhone version, you will receive a screen guard with your purchase. The Vibes iSkin comes with a clear screen guard, while the Vibes FX is shipped with a "mirrored" screen guard.

Verdict: 5 out of 5 stars
Pros: Ultimate protection in colorful skins
Cons: I can see the port doors getting worn out over time and possibly not closing
Price: Vibes ($29.99 US) and Vibes FX ($32.99 US)
I have two STORM iSkin Vibes (one in Charcoal, one in Blue) that were given to me to review that I would like to give away to the PinStack community.

Great review Cherri. Will have to look into one of these for my 8900.
those skins look cool && not overly bulky like other ones...i love the red 1
The give-away is strictly for two STORM skins, sorry for the confusion. One winner, two storm skins
And thanks to iSkin for sending these out to me
Sweet. I am anxious to try the Iskin for my storm. Anyone know of CanAdian retailers stocking them.

I have been thinking of getting one of these. Winning one, esp. a blue one, would be great.
