Skins for 360

(as in, physical skins for the case of the device, not interface skins)

Does anyone know of a place that makes skins that fit the PB360? I'm getting kind of tired of the swirly pattern on the ivory model, plus the finish seems to scratch easily. I haven't found anywhere that sells skins for it though.

Thanks!!

I think it would be hard to skin, due to the texturing on the cover. A skin for the front and back wouldn't be hard, but that wouldn't hide the swirls for you.

I *love* my black rectangles, although I sometimes think I should have gotten the ivory. I throw my PB360 into the diaper bag where it rattles around with all kinds of things, and it has nary a scratch. Maybe the black finish is more durable than the ivory?

I suspect the black matte is something terribly sturdy. My PB 360 had some "adventure" (plus a fall due to a train's sudden and violent braking) and it's practically perfect on the black parts, whilst the grey simil-metal begins to show a bit of the plastic underside. But well, I think it's even more lovely

My MM got knocked quite a lot already, too. The plastic is as good as new, the "silvery" paint has some scratches, too.

I ordered it with my 360 since it only cost 9 euros if ordered in bundle. I haven't really had use for it yet but it seems good fit and it is made for 360. Seems good if you transport it a lot. Of course you can't read with it on so it might not be what you are looking for.

Now that you mention it I see that the silvery part on the cover that says Pocketbook 360 is extremely scratched. So, yes, the black finish must be tough.

Yes, something like that. A very strong sticker that will protect the case while changing the appearance. They make them for other readers, computers, phones, etc.

Haven't checked it out in detail. But as far as I remember, GelaSkins and others offer a "user mode". You freely can choose your motive, this I know for sure. I think, you freely can define the measurements as well, but I'm not so sure about that. Worth checking out...

Looks like on Gelaskins you can design a skin with an image of your choice, but you have to choose from their pre-existing selection of devices. No Pocketbook option unfortunately.

I've mailed to Gelaskins already, asking about skin for PB360.
Here is the answer:
"Thank you for your email! We do not have any current plans for this device, but I will surely pass you suggestions along to our designers!"
