Kindle Skins Cover the Screen?

I like the skins I've seen, but it looks like they cover the screen. Is that right?

Doesn't that obscure the reading, or am I totally missing something?

Thanks!

Doh!! I looked closer, and it looks like matching wallpapers are on the screens. Am I right? So there isn't actually anything over the screen?

Thanks! Sorry if this is as stupid a question as it seems to me!

You're right, at least as far as the skins from DecalGirl.com are concerned. The skin doesn't cover the screen.

The combination of screensaver and skin is really quite striking!

Do you know if mytego - or other places that let you make custom skins - also give you a wallpaper? Or is it only if you buy one of their designs?

can you use a custom screensaver on the K2?

It appears that the answer is: NO!

I didn’t hear about kindle skin but I want to know about it. I just used Samsung phone skin covers for my mobile phones. Is this kindle skin cover is mobile phone covers?
