Hmm..I was hoping the bottom would be more enclosed...similar to current 77xx/72xx series leather cases.

Does this case have a sleeper magnet? If it is the OEM one, I am assuming it does.

Next question: The case I really want is the OEM pouch with no clip for pocket/briefcase use. Any word when we'll see that one?

This one will hold me over but I want that OEM pouch!

They have an item described as:

BlackBerry 8700 Series Leather Pouch (no belt clip)
Mfr. Part # ACC-10556-001

Is this what you are looking for?

mriff that is the pouch that megbit wants... they are a couple weeks out.

We will have enough of the holsters too meet all orders in house... they are flying off the virtual shelf so if you are on the fence don't be surprised if there is a delay of you don't order today - how's that for high pressure selling?!!!! :)

You have another item on your order that we are waiting for. Your complete order should ship monday or tuesday. I just resent you the update email. Check your gmail spam filter in case it shows up there.

Do you think it will have a flap or be more true to the original sleeve like design?

I have been using the 7130 version of this case for a week. I only have two complaints:

1. Muffles the speaker causing the notification sounds hard to hear unless in a quite environment.

2. When you remove the BB after an incoming message within 15 seconds the message screen wil not display and the message is marked as read. What happens is the magnet on the top of the case (where the flip latches to) effects the sleeper function.

Other than that it is a nice case.

I wonder if it has the second magnet in the back. If it does thenit you could put it facing in and when you take it out it will not do the double magnet effect for the messages.

Doesn't matter how you place the BB in the case - face in or out. The magnet on the top is strong enough to cause the sleeper function to take effect. The only way I found to beat it is to stretch the top of the case (elastic sides) far enough away from the BB as I pull it out.

RCG - since you seem to know more than anyone, the case I've enjoyed the most is the OEM case for the 7250. Open top, sleeper magnet, swivel clip, great fit. Unfortunately, 7250 is gone, 8700 is in. Will there be an open top case for the 8700 also, or is this "flip lid" it?

I second that. I too liked the 7250 OEM case w/swivel clip. Someone in the 7100 forum said his friend (a leathercrafter) took the 7130 case like I now have, removed the flip and trimmed down the front where the closure magnet is. Sounds like its similar to the old 7250 case.

Looking forward to the case. Thanks for the updates and Pics.

^^^ what he said. I would like a swivel clip leather case with no flap. But I also am not so excited about the OEM swivel clip - too high profile. I wish they had clips like the Naztech ones have, those are puuurfect.

Anything can be customized... If this case doesn't do it for you there are lots of alternatives.

Is the lining like the Apple OEM iPod cases, which is something like those micro fiber cloths to protect the plastic display window?

I see it fits face-out-- is that correct? That puts the magnet pressure on the display when bumped... do they fit face-in like the original OEM cases (if the magnet is back there)?

The lining is Velour.

The unit can be placed face in or out - hoster mode is triggered either way.

Good News for Canada... WE WILL BE SHIPPING TO YOU!!!!

SmartPhoneDepot is in process of converting from our Yahoo! based shopping cart to a new database powered system. The conversion along with some backoffice mods will allow us to ship north. These changes will be complete by the end of the month.

Look for the new store to debut on March 15th... shipping to Canada to follow shortly after.

Then maybe you don't want the OEM case. I got an aftermarket holtser at http://store.bizshopr.com/spdmon0193.html for under $20, feels strudy, magnet works, my 8700 holds a charge for about 4 days just like with the plastic holster and it hasn't fallen out in 3 months.

We are just trying to set proper expectations - It's likely the first 100 cases had been sold before your order was received. We have additional units coming scheduled for Thursday delivery. They may arrive sooner in which case you will be pleasantly surprised - but If I said Monday and they didn't ship until Thursday you might be upset! :)

We are trying to get them as fast as possible.
