And the plot thickens.
It appears the case is made by www.amzer.com
I've sent an e-mail to them regarding this thread and our concens.
Even more disturbing though is the fact that I don't see a case for the 8700 listed in their product line up. I'm guessing this is yet another case of Blackberry Stuff.com selling a 72xx series case and marketing it as 8700 compatible.
I will keep you updated if I hear back from Amzer.
