Hey there.

I JUST got my 8130 activated, and ordered a BestSkinsEver. But crap, you're right. I didn't realize this link is for the 8100:
RIM BlackBerry 8100 Pearl Screen Skin

I'll let you know how this skin works on the 8130. This might have been a 5 dollar mistake.

I don't know which is better, but I have a BestSkinsEver on my iPod and an InvisibleShield on my old 7130E and I like the BestSkinsEver better personally.

There is a ton of discussion on BestSkinsEver in the iPod covers forums at All things iPod, iPhone, iTunes and beyond | iLounge -- See what they think, but I'm very happy with my iPod so I'll let you know how the 8130 goes.

I can tell you that the skin from Shield Zone is not cut very well for the 8130 at this time. I ordered the one for the 8130 and it did not fit very well at all.

This was my first "skin" purchase so I don't have anything else to compare it to, but it did not live up to my expectations. For $25 I expected it to be almost perfect.

I love my BSE skins but the 8100 will not work for the 8130 because the camera is rotated 90 degrees.

I got the BSE for my 8130 and it works great screen only. And it is the 8100 screen protector.

Hi, I just applied the BestSkinsEver 8100 to my 8130. It looks great for now, but I need to let it dry for a day.

Unfortunately, I dropped my phone the day before the skin arrived in the mail, and got a scratch in there. It's not bad, but I'd rather it be 100% flawless

BSE is better than InvisibleShield -- I had an InvisibleShield on my 7130E and I like my iPod's BSE better, and I can already tell this one is going to be better.

I've also put the BSE 8100 screen protector on the 8130...works great, cut-outs match up.

What did you do about the camera difference? Or did you only do the screen?
