Get Your Ass Covered Review – GelaSkins for iPad 2


For those of you who are planning on getting an iPad 2 together with the Smart Cover, or who have already done so, one piece of advice….. get your ass (iPad 2) covered.  You definitely don’t want to have the back side wide open as you can get all the scratches on it, especially with the Apple logo (a big no no if you’re planning on selling it in the future).

In come GelaSkins, the company that specializes removable covers for portable devices. Their skins features stunning and photo-quality graphics ranging from fine art prints to contemporary urban images.  GelaSkins in fact is one of the few companies that have the whole product line ready before the iPad2 was launched.  Over 100 stock artworks are available or even best, use your own photo or art for the skins.  For now, GelaSkins only have the front and back cover set (US$29.95), and that comes with a wallpaper to match the artwork you choose.  For the iPad 2 back cover only, they do have the section up but no stock artwork yet, meaning one can only use their own photo or art.

UPS arrived this morning

GelaSkins for my iPad2

I ordered mine last week for my iPad 2.  Got the Charity: Water Logo on Black and Love Letters artworks and received them today.  The whole process of applying the skin to the iPad 2 took 5 minutes or so.  For now I’m leaving the front skins and the wall paper as I’m just using the black leather Smart Cover.  One thing I do notice while applying the skins is that one can easily pull the skins off and use another one, just stick it back to the sheet that it came with.  Thanks for the 3M technology GelaSkins uses.

Now for a limited time, you get one free skins if you order three from GelaSkins.

To let you get a better idea of how the GelaSkins work and look, I’ve linked this great video from metagamers below.
