Overall I like it, but I don't like the keyboard being covered (though I would). The silicone is somewhat "tacky" and it has nice bumps on the side that make it easy to grip.

- I purchased the OEM silicone case

This one (IMHO) is just bad. The skin is so smooth it's slippery.

So can anyone recommend a silicone skin that is more on the sticky/tacky side (possibly with bumps on the side for a better grip) but that does not cover the keyboard?


Hi Frank...

I went to e*ay and got setup with the thin film plastic on my 8800. So far, the only issue I have is in very bright sunlight. The film covers the screen and wraps on the top. I covers the bottom area under the keboard and there are two additional pieces for the back.
