We have been getting a huge number of inquiries regarding the OEM case for the 8700... [updated 04/03/05]

RIM/SPD part number ACC-10540-003
http://store.bizshopr.com/rimacc-10540-003.html

IN-Stock and ready to Ship

RIM/SPD Part Number ACC-10556-001
http://store.bizshopr.com/rimacc-10556-001.html

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>This case is NOW available

This is the same case as the above without the swivel belt clip. It has the flap closure and sleeper and everything like the above case. At this point I don't expect RIM to release a pouch without a flap - simply because this is their new format for all their case offerings. Take a look at the 7100 series collection for hints of future cases (color options).

Queued orders will be complete by Monday 4/10 and new orders shipped then as well.

Any chances the 7100 sport holster will fit the 8700? I have always liked the neoprene cases.

That sucks. I have always like the Body Glove branded holsters. I need something rugged for work which still lets me get to my 8700 well. I usually dont clip it on my belt though instead its on the inside of my front pocket.

We try hard to deliver the goods but I must say RIM is very challenging. Product is very random and they rarely pre-announce anything. Please come back and check out our new store front launching in about a week or so.

I have to echo the sentiments on this one BIG TIME, i havent been waiting 3 months, but MAN!!!!!!! i love the case alot better than the forrte case i paid ($54.00 ) for. Soon as it came I replaced my case. Alot less bulky. GREAT SVC... I must admit, i was a bit skeptical on ordering with no pic, but it worked out well.

Without checking your specific order data I would guess that yours will ship when the next 40 arrive (should be tuesday). You actually should have received two emails... one for the initial purchase and a second with the EST Ship Date.

I will have a look in the morning and get back to you directly.

Got my RIM OEM case from SPD today VIA Fedex.
I have been waiting for it and I am happy with it. It sticks out further than the 71XX series case I have been using but that was hard to get the 8700 out of.

Thanks to RCG and SPD.

Hi, guys.

I just went to the Cingular store yesterday and got myself a 7100 series holster:
BlackBerry 7100g Soft Sided Holster, Black

It works like a charm. A little tight (especially with the egrips on), but that's ok with me, I don't want my crackberry falling out.

The magnet works fine too. The baby locks up once I stick it in.

Aesthetics are acceptable. It really looks as if the case was made for the 8700 device.

Can someone post pictures of the closing mechanism? How about side by side with the Gizmo Skin?

Looks quite nice though the clip is pretty big.

hf1khal
03-15-2006, 11:12 PM
I have them both. Today I got the new disign of the GizmoSkin and the BB OEM one. The Gizmoskin one is more of a classy shaped and low profile one. Now it fits the 8700 nice and snug. It no longer closes on top when the BB is not in it and it stays open. The BB one is also nice but it sure gives the look of being bulky. My thought is that if the Gizmoskin had the BB rachet clip it would then be the best of both worlds. The Gizmo is definatly a nice low profile and it also for sure goes as one that is also good pocket use. I also have to say, that Gizmoskin realy have stood by its product and I never have seen such a dedicated person that stands behind his own product. I also have to ay it was nice dealing with SPD and it will for sure be my source for all OEM products.

BBRaffey
03-16-2006, 06:59 AM
So Gizmoskin has finally solved the falling apart problem? Are the sides now stiched or are they still just glued? I like the slimmer profile of Gizmoskin but in searching for the perfect case I have bought three black ones including Fortte vertical and the OEM. I will wait until Gizmoskin comes out with a brown one for the 8700. I agree that the customer service of SPD cannot be beat.

Just got a few OEMs and they are much better than the Gizmo. Very sturdy and just a bit thicker front to back (thicker clip and leather) but thinner left to right and top to bottom because the case is tighter. I am now on my 3rd defective Gizmo case. All 3 are falling apart at the edges and have magnets in strange places that don't always put the BB to sleep. The closing mechanism is identical to the Gizmo in magnet strength but is wider and easier to grab.

As far as I can tell it is now both. So it should hold up good.

It seems much bulkier.
I have the revised Gizmo Skin and it now makes my 8700 sleep unlike the old one.
I like the low profile of the Gizmo, and the sides seem much better connected now.
I do like OEM so I might get tempted to pick one up for myself...

I would say that if the case has a nice lining, then the screen protector can go. Especially since they have a couple of threads here about how to remove scratches.

Anyone received the 8700c leather pouch (no belt clip) from SPD yet? I received an e-mail saying that my order was being processed and would be shipped in 4-7 days, but no tracking number. Anyone else have this issue?

Received mine today. It was shipped on Monday. PM rcg with your order #. He should be able to tell you when your order will ship.

No one else has this issue...

I have tried to reach you 4 times via email... phone and now here. There is a billing issue with your order.

ALL of the pouches have been shipped to customers except yours.
