by Tim Stiffler-Dean Wed, 17 Aug 2011 4:26 pm EDT

In our most recent PalmCast we told you about our favorite new HP TouchPad skins that recently arrived in our accessory store just yesterday, and now we've decided to give two packs away! If you're tired of looking at fingerprints and scratches on that glossy back and glass front of your TouchPad, now's your chance to get a BodyGuardz Protective Skin or a BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin (back) and a BodyGuardz ScreenGuardz HD (front) absolutely free.

How do you enter? It's easy. All you have to do is log into your account and leave a comment on this post with your choice of either the BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin (it's all carbon fiber-y) or BodyGuardz Protective Skin (which is clear). Pick one, and only one, or we'll send you a lump of coal instead. Tell us what you love most about your TouchPad to get brownie points (which don't actually help your chances of winning, but are still cool to have anyway).

Everything else you need to know: Contest ends next Wednesday the 24th at midnight PST with the winners selected at random from the entered comments. Please only leave one comment, multiple entries won’t count. Prizes are non-refunable and non-exchangable, but it's free, so why should you want to?

This contest is sponsored by the PreCentral Store your one stop source for all of your webOS accessory needs. If you need more goods for your HP TouchPad or other webOS device, go ahead and check out what else the PreCentral Store has to offer.


I'll take the carbon fiber. :D

And for me, the UI and multitasking is the favorite thing about the TouchPad / webOS.

love the ui and multitasking too
as well as notifications

screenguardz for me

black carbon fiber...i want webOS to succeed so iOS doesn't

BodyGuardz Protective Skin please and thanks!

PreCentral's keeping webOS alive!

I love the interface and smoothness

Carbon fiber.

BodyGuardz Protective Skin

webOS on the big screen it's just better.

Carbon fiber for this carbon based lifeform. Power overwhelming with preware patches, multi-tasking and a slick UI.

carbon fiber plz

me2!! long time webos used here :)
just got a tp. really nice. hook up the carbon fiber!

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin would be my choice --- XP, "Synergy" ~

Carbon fiber FTW!

Favorite thing is my TP is not brainwashed Crapple purchase. WebOS Rulez!

Hear hear (and I don't even have my TouchPad yet--waiting with bated breath for Firesale Round 2!)

Carbon fiber here too. Just no lumps of coal--do you know how many asthma attacks are caused by pollution from coal plants? And don't get me started on mountaintop removal.

Carbon Fiber Skin

I love showing off the Angry Birds easter egg — a instant hit with everyone!

Carbon Fiber :D I'd really like to see one of these bad boys MADE out of carbon fiber, not just have a skin, that would be TRULY awesome!

What's not to like about my TouchPad? Customization through Homebrew, Overclocking thanks to webOS Internals, wireless charging with the Touchstone, being able to have a Skype call with my girlfriend on her Android, accessing all my cyberspace pics in one place in the photo app, streaming my media from my desktop anywhere....the list goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on.........................................

My choice is the ScreenGuardz because WebOS Rocks!!!

I already spoke up below for the carbon, but now that I have another $99 TPad, I could really use it more. :) Thanks Derek! Way to stick it to HP, those tards.

I'd love the carbon fiber.

Carbon Fiber please!

I love the entire interface. I love the control I have over the apps and the actual OS itself and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that there is the homebrew community who is doing everything in their power to KEEP WEBOS ALIVE! I'm trying to get my hands on a second 64gb Touchpad and will need a nice sleeve to go with it for my pregnant wife! We're having our first child in February and I want to use my Touchpad as a learning tool for our baby.

I want the carbon fiber skin cuz carbon fiber makes everything epic! ;)


Definitely the Carbon Fiber Skin...

BodyGuardz Protective Skin PLease.

Carbon fiber please.

Multi-tasking and preware patches.

Carbon Fiber looks cool.

Hope my order pulls through.

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin for me!

Touchpad is a great addition to my two Pre-'s!

I want the BodyGuardz Protective Skin.

I really just love webOS. It's AMAZING.

I would like the red carbon fiber.

I love the integrated email and calendar

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin Please

My favorite part is Synergy. Photos that sync from Facebook, your dropbox documents are there...etc. The rounded edges make is fit better in my case than the ipad 1.

Please remember people that have a pre pixi or veer that most of the functions including bluetooth calling are there. TTS is over-rated and the only thing not available.

Hope I win this! Just got a HP touchpad... webOS is really awesome! Loved it even though I've only used it for two days.

Nice offer, I would like the BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin

Its not an iPad or Android Tablet, it is has the best o/s out there webos!
BodyGuardz Protective Skin

In absence of a pithy comment... I want one!

You have to tell them which one!

carbon fiber would be real nice

Carbon is the one i really need!I really love the synergy with everything I do between my email and my phone!

carbon fiber what's not to love?

I'll take the Carbon Fiber!

Does it charge via TouchStone?

What I love about my TouchPad: How less I use the PC when I have my TouchPad. One of the best stock browsers on a tablet and with Flash, one of the best experiences!

Ooh! I want the carbon fibre - I like multitasking and FLASH!

BodyGuardz Protective Skin


carbon fiber

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin! This Touchpad brings true multitasking to a big screen, just like it should be seen! It's awesome!

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin Please!

It can haz potential!

Carbon Fiber, to keep things right.

WebOS, the OS/2 Warp of the Millennium.

Good question are the BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin TouchStone compatible?

If Touchstone can work through the HP case *and* flap, it can work through a sticker.

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin please! :)

I'll take the carbon skin one thanks

Thing I love most about my touchpad is that I can surf the net while on the can... Most underrated feature by far.

if I win, carbon fiber 4 me. I sure hope hp succeeds with touchpad, love mine

Carbon Fiber !!!!

I would love the Carbon Fiber skin!

It's hard to choose what my favorite thing about the TouchPad is, but my list of favorites includes the Angry Birds Easter egg :)

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin would be great for my Touchpad! I love to watch YouTube videos on my TouchPad.

Now that would be cool to have on my touchpad!

BodyGuardz Protective Skin is the one for me!!! :)

I love the OS and the ease of multitasking the most about the Touchpad and webOS in general.

Carbon Fiber for me.

I love cards and our Homebuyers make this the greatest platform EVER!

Carbon is what I crave, but I would be really grateful either way. This is really cool of you! Thanx much for all you do to advance and report on the platform.

carbon fiber. The Touchpad is the single coolest piece of tech I have ever owned. The multi-tasking is my favorite feature, and the Flash enabled browser is right behind that. I have gotten so much more done now that I don't have to be at my desk to process email and read up on RSS feeds. I am very happy with this thing, and have been since my day 1 purchase!

I want one! My touchpad is still naked...

Mmm carbon fiber-y

Carbon fiber, please.

carbon Fiber looks very cool....
I love my touchpad because it has the functionality I am looking for in a pad. Waiting for document editing and the Pre3 but I am sold on is the best mobile OS period!!! Since ordering this on day one my macbook Pro is getting a bit jealous and never gets to go hoo!


BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin


-Gorilla Glass
-Beats Audio

I'd like the clear one to cover my touchpad because my favorite thing about it is letting my kids play with it. They love scruffy kitty

Carbon Fiber, me likey!

carbon fiber please

BodyGuardz Protective Skin

BodyGuardz Protective Skin


BodyGuardz Protective Skin please....

Sign me up for the carbon fiber please! Thanks a WebOS lot!

Love that carbon fiber! =D

Carbon fiber would be nice, but if royal blue was available it would be cool!

BodyGuardz Protective Skin

The Touchpad has the greatest OS ever - nuff said!

A carbon fiber one would be nice for my 32GB HP Touchpad that I'm about to purchase on Amazon!!!

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin!
I love that HP is actually open to the homebrew group!
no jailbreaking!

I could use a BodyGuardz ScreenGuardz HD.

Carbon Fiber. I've already damaged 1 Touchpad.

I love protective skinz!

The BodyGuardz Carbon Fiber would look amazing on my Touchpad. What I love about the touchpad? Synergy, flawless integration with my Pre device, transparent Skype integration the current and hopefully the upcoming HP Services!

I'd love a clear one. :)

Carbon Fiber would be nice

Carbon Fiber Skin

BodyGuardz Protective Skin for me, please.

Touchpad community, especially Homebrew and Zepree.

Wonderful apps: pReader Camera, Foursquare, box,and Angry Birds HD

Put me down for a BodyGuardz ScreenGuardz HD. And I love me some of that sweet sweet multi-tasking

I really like the carbon fibre!

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin

Multitasking - The TouchPad truly works like I do. This is WebOS's strongest benefit. And on a 9.7 inch screen, it works wonderfully.

The Keyboard - People overlook they keyboard. I like it much better than the iPad keyboard. It is truly the best out there. A number row and resizable? Why didn't anyone think of that sooner?

Speakers! - Also overlooked. They're the best of any tablet and I've tried all of the ones typically on display. - 50 Free Gigs!!!! No comment necessary. Way to go HP, thanks for arranging that deal.

QuickOffice included for free - As soon as Doc editing is released!

Finally, the Angry Birds Easter Egg for sling shooting cards off the screen. Everyone I show that to laughs so hard.

Protective Skin all the way. I don't like to cover up logos :)

And so far, my favorite thing about webOS is it's ease of use. It's by far the easiest mobile / tablet O/S I've used as far as pick-up and play time.

And it has to be said that having the Konami code as the dev mode code is one of the funniest / coolest things ever!

The carbon fiber rocks! It'll look sweet on my TP - give it a nice sheen. Multitasking up a storm with it right now!

gimme! :D

I would like to have a carbon fiber bodyguardz on my Touchpad it would be COOL!!!

BodyGuardz Protective Skin for HP TouchPad

The touchpad offers multitasking in a unique, differentiated and deterministic way.

The webOS brand of multitasking democratizes access to multiple contents. Web pages and apps are equal citizens and can be open side-by-side. Also, a variety of applications allow multiple instances for quickly switching back and forth all without loosing visual context. For instance, this feature allows opening multiple documents (PDF and others) side-by-side and flicking between documents as easily as flicking between pages.

And closing an activity happens predictably with an easy upward flicking gesture (or the catapult gesture with angry-bird sound effect)!

Carbon Fiber please

After being given this 16gb touchpad by my manager for testing (keeping) I am very impressed.
Told my manager to give it 6 months and you will see how bad your ipad2 actually is compared to the touchpad.

This is coming from someone who likes Android

bodyguardz-protective-skin so that everyone knows it is a HP touchpad and not an ipad. I like my touchpad because of the card multitasking and flash web browsing.

Clear, please. What I like most about the TouchPad: I can still use Exchange (for work) while enjoying the speed of webOS 3.0.

pick me

carbon fiber please

I'm up for the Carbon Fiber Skin in black. Hopefully, the screen guard is non-adhesive/non-liquid. I always get bubbles in the adhesive ones.

I want the carbon fiber white plz =]

I like the Carbon Fiber Skin! Flash player and cards are my favorite

Carbon Fiber, please.

I'm really glad the web browser is good enough to run the Facebook site because I really don't like the Fb Touchpad app. Maybe it'll be better in another rev or two. I also look forward to the web browser being able to handle Google+ better.

Carbon fiber sweet!

Want: Carbon Fiber Skin

Advanced Browser

Carbon fiber please!

I'd love to try the clear BodyGuardz Protective Skin.



What I like about the Touchpad is developing for it and using my app on it.

I'll take any one of them as free is free and I'd be happy with any of them.

and I like the TP cos its webOS, plain and simple

I'm in for the carbon fiber-y-ness!

Would love to have one. Thanks

I would love to have the clear casing because of my case I have but the thing I love about about the TouchPad is the true multitasking, the brilliant beats audio, and also the wireless charging. Please let me win :D

I actually change my mind I would love to have the red one Thanks :D

carbonfiber! I love my touchpad... Lemme tell ya, flash is awesome to have. Plus, more and more apps every day!

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin

Because of webOS!!!

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin

CARBON FIBER is the way

Is it US only?
If no I'd love a BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin to put on my touchpad when it will be back from repair center (micro usb cracks yay \o/)
I love everything about this tablet apart from one thing: the glossy fingerprint magnet back.
This would just make it perfect

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin for me please!

The Touchpad has inspired me to toy around with Enyo and I have an application halfway built!

I would be great to protect my new multi-tasking, card-flinging, tablet with the same stuff that protects my CAR BONnet.

Carbon Fiber Skin, so my naked Touchpad can finally go out in public looking bada$$..

Carbon Fiber keeps me regular. Pretty please, with sugar on top.

I'd love the BodyGuardz Protective Skin for my brand new HP TouchPad!

So far my favorite part about my TouchPad is the option to slingshot cards off the screen when upside down. After that I have to say its the amazing browsing experience followed by an awesome community!

Carbon Fiber Skin! Bought my Touchpad only because of webOS.

sign me up. thanks

I like the Carbon Fiber. Looks very Cool!

carbon fiber plixzzzzz

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin please!

I was seriously debating the iPad, but I missed multitasking too much when I tried it.

Nifty! I want the Carbon Fiber. That sounds awesome!

Carbon Fiber skin please... Exhibition mode integration for face book, photos & Just Type ... the list is long

BodyGuardz Protective Skin

What do I love about the Touchpad... It's all around awesome and not an Apple product.

I never win anything but what the heck I'll give it a try.

carbon fiber please

love my multitasking and the email app

good luck guys much love to this community :-)

BodyGuardz Protective Skin

TouchPad is so much more intuitive to use than iPad.

My first comment. Would like Carbon Fiber as the application to the back using PhantomSkinz was less than great.

My favorite things about the TouchPad - it's webOS of course, has multitasking and Touch To Share (hopefully an incoming Sprint Pre 3 will be on the horizon) :)

I'll take the Protective skin, please! :-)

Yesterday was my 26th Birthday, and I proposed to my girlfriend of a year and a half and she said yes. I'd love to add a BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin to the list of awesome new things in my life.

BodyGuardz Protective Skin . Thank you!

Being a carbon-based life form; I'll have to toss my hat in the ring for the BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin!

I want the BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin!


Been needing to get a skin and screen protector. Would love the BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin to protect my beloved TouchPad.

Carbon fiber please! I love my TouchPad because its like me Pre.... On steroids... Lots and lots of steroids

I'd love a BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin!

Favorite thing about my TouchPad is that I can charge it wirelessly while my coworkers tablets (non-TouchPads) can not. :)

Carbon fiber for me, please.

Although I haven't had my TouchPad out of it's case in weeks.....

Still love this thing, does everything I want it to do and the user interface is so clean and uncluttered. I always hated having icons on my desktop at work, and seeing the iPhone/androids cluster-f of a 'desktop' makes me glad I've got webOS, even if it is dead.

Heck, I still use OS/2 at home....

carbon fiber is my choice...

BodyGuardz Armor Carbon Fiber Skin.

Exhibition Mode!

BodyGuardz Protective skin (clear) please!
