Kindle Accessory Review - Cheap Price, High Quality

I found this via a post in the Kindle Forums, and have since applied the skin.  Must say I am pleasantly surprised.  Check it out for yourself:

Wonderful Accessory for Kindle, Matches my Other Accessories, AND My Eyes LOVE the Keys!

I have the Kindle 3G Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 6" Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology in Graphite. I've had it since Dec. 22nd. I really didn't have a key issue, but they were starting to look a little worn. I'd put this skin on my wish list, after seeing it in the Kindle Forums.

I finally decided to buy. I'd already watched the application instructions on the web site, and there are more on You Tube if you like. I didn't buy it to decorate the Kindle, I bought it for those WONDERFUL WHITE KEYS!!! (I have included some pics up top, the best one can do when they have a disorder that causes shaking :-)

I was pleasantly surprised with the speed of shipping. Application was not as simple, due to my eyesight lining the skin with the Kindle under the plastic protector was a bit cloudy. It took about an hour on the back (and the back shows it, but not so much - and it stays in a cover anyway). I didn't realize the front wasn't PERFECTLY aligned, but it is off only by nanos.

The skin is a bit more glossy than pictured, but it doesn't interfere when reading with light. Reading without light is PERFECT. The Keys are now easy to read in all situations, and my colors for all accessories match (everything is either blue or black). The design is just right for us older folks not looking for distraction nor attention. And, even with the front and back on, fits perfect in my Blue mCover® Leather Folio Cover Case for Amazon Kindle 3 (Fits 6" Display, built-in inner pocket).

When its time to purchase another, I might go with the MATTE Decal Skin Sticker for Amazon Kindle 3 3G (no keys & for 3rd Generation model) (Matte Finish) case cover MAT-kindle3-NOKEY-446, but for now - I'm perfectly content with this Nokey Skin.

PS - if you do come into a scratchy situation, such as dropping the kindle on pavement - the Skin will take the scratches for you. BUT, I HIGHLY recommend a Cover/Case besides the skin - can't tell you how many times my cats decided they didn't want to read - and just tossed the Kindle to the floor!!
