    I wanted to know if anyone knew about how long it takes for skin manufacturers to come out with skins for a particular phone? I know the Bionic is still pretty new, so how much longer can I expect to wait? I don't want any kind of case, but I would like a skin, probably from either Gelaskins or Decalgirl.

    you would really need to contact the individual manufacturer and just ask them. It could be anywhere from tomorrow to never, :)

    when I whined to Gela Skins when the thunderbolt came out they said a couple of weeks after the phone was released, so I'm guessing the same with this. I did email them about an ETA for the Bionic but got no answer back

    edit: one good thing about emailing the manufacturer is that it shows interest and may push them to put it on the front burner

    I emailed them (Gelaskins) yesterday and just got this response:





    I emailed Decalgirl as well and got this response:



    So I guess I'm gonna wait for Decalgirl to come out with something, hopefully sooner than later.

    looks like not everyone is on the same page at Gelaskins

    That's funny. Not haha funny. I guess I'll just order from whoever comes out with theres first. Both make good skins, although Gelaskins' designs tend to be a little better.

    Skinomi Skins

    I'm about to go with Skinomi skins. They have a dark and a light wood skin, clear, and carbon fiber skins for the Bionic. Plus you get 25% back with the code get25. I'd like to see it on someone elses first but I think I might go for it. I don't like the added bulk of the cases and the Bionic is already a little big compared to my old D1. I kinda like the classic look of the wood in contrast to the modern look of the Bionic. Other than that all I have seen on the market so far is the clear one from Invisishield.

    I saw Skinomi offered that as well, and while the woodgrain does look interesting to me, I kinda wanted something a bit more colorful. I'm also unfamiliar with them and would like to see what it looks like one someone else's phone before I buy it. Not all skins are created equal. I know Skinit has a lot of variety, but their skins tend to not fit as well on the devices and kinda look like crap. And I'm with you on the skin vs. case thing. I'm pretty careful with my things and I don't think I'll be dropping my Bionic (knock on wood), so I'd like something thinner, like a skin, just to protect against normal wear and tear. I found another site, Invisibiledefenders, that doesn't have it yet, but I sent them an email as well. I'd just like to get mine covered already.

    Cool. I went to their site, but they don't have any pics of it up. Any idea if it'd be worth it?
