While it's only kinda related, check out this thread (with pics). I just put a Skinomi black carbon fiber skin on my Dell Streak 7. It's not really "vinyl" but is a much tougher material. Honestly, it's a bit rough on your hands on the corners of the device, but it looks nice. I'm throwing an Otterbox Communter on my DS7 anyways, so I don't care about the roughness.
Got mine today and Its pretty nice. The Carbon fiber backing is cut to fit the sides and corners. It can be hard to line up and an extra pair of hands really helps. But you can pull it off until you get it lined up and that's a good thing because I can assure you you will not get it first try.
The front went on PERFECTLY! no bubbles or anything. don't know if its the protector or I'm just getting good at it but I'm impressed with how it looks just 1 minute after I applied it. Normally it takes a few days for all the bubble to dry out but not this time, it is literally perfect! . Very happy with the over all package.
Speaking of package it comes in a tube inside a 5 sided cardboard tube box so the mail man can't bend it to hell before you get it. Its a nice touch.
Oh and it even has a little clear round piece for the HP logo.
I had a invisible shield on my Palm Pre for a long time, and really didn't see any difference.
I bought this Skinomi for my TP, and I thought the screen was MUCH LESS responsive than when it was not on (I let it sit 4 days, I really don't use the TP much, waiting for Android). I also didn't like the texture it gave it - I like the slick glass. On a little device it made no difference, but on a bigger device it DOES.
