I've ordered a PlayBook and plan to get a gel rubber skin for it (eg http://www.amazon.co.uk/BlackBerry-PlayBook-Gel-Sk
Also, is the envelope significantly better than the sleeve which comes with the PlayBook?

Dont see the need for a rubber skin. The PB has a rubberised back for grip. You need clear access to the buttons and sockets. Invest in a desk dock charger instead.
Anything is better than the neoprene slip that comes with playbook. It is like getting a wetsuit on and off.

Thanks for the reply, jarviser. I've got a similar rubber skin for my Tab 8.9 which I really like - don't have to worry about putting it down on things that may scuff the back. It also has cut-outs for the buttons and sockets, so that's not a problem. I've had a go with a PlayBook in the shop before ordering one, but didn't notice that the back was rubberised. Think I'll still get a skin though as they can alsways be replaced if they get a bit worn.
