One thing. How heavy is the rubberized case? It looks rather thick. Thicker than the Silicone skin? Or thinner.

Good review!

Thanks!
The Rubberized Case is not heavy at all. I would say the same weight as the silicone skin. As far as thickness, I want to say it is a tad bit thinner yet more durable and sturdy. It fits so perfectly that I think it does not make the 8100 seem 'bulky'.

So far no lint/dust. There was a piece of dust on the case but I just blew it off.

Seidio crystal case and rubberized case are super slim design. we have carefully design so it will not take away the sleek design og BB 8100. It offers the protection and personalized options.

As to the carrying solution for BB 8100 with crystal, rubberized case or skin on , Seidio offers

1) swivel lock plastic holster
2) leather case that can work with naked BB 8100 and BB 8100 with crystal case, rubberized case and skin on.

The leather case will be available later. The holster is available now.

Those BSE smudges on the back of that one pic are a testament to how tight fitting the clear case is.

My case is very much like this one, only black instead of brown and a belt clip instead of a strap. I got it free with Rogers. It's the OEM case for Blackberry.

Cool, thanks for the discount for members. I've been on the fence as far as ordering a rubberized case today, then I saw the discount and that pushed me over the edge.

I want to order the combo, but I'm paying $9 to have this stuff shipped across the street. That's ridiculous. I live in Houston!

Ok so I bought the case not knowing if it will fit in this pouch. That belt clip reminds me of the one for the Mike i830 I owned. Everytime I pulled it out of the clip, it would flop around in my hands and land on the floor. I prefer the pouch, I find it's better protection for me. I hope that this will fit in the OEM Blackberry leather pouch.

Might want to do what krad did if they can't. Cancel order, re-order and apply discount.

Fantastic review Phungy!!!! Rubberised case looks fantastic - didn't actually realise that it came apart in 2 pieces!!

Wasn't sure about splashing out $30 on it though plus international shipping but the review has convinced me - just waiting on my BSE skin and case and I'll be set!!

Just out of interest how much is shipping within the USA for an individual case, because I was just about to order a Rubberised case from Seidio but was informed that shipping was $25.17 with Fed-ex.

The case could be shipped (weight-wise I'm guessing) for about $5 airmail and about $11 Global Priority International.

Kinda dissapointed with the shipping cost - especially since I see people for the company on here replying to messages, giving regular updates, offering advice, assistance, customer service numbers, discount codes etc - but I'm used to American companies overcharging.

Just have to wait for a poorer quality case on eBay because I'm not paying approx. $47 shipped for the rubberised case!!

On Seidio's website they have a calculator for USPS. You don't have to have it shipped via FedEx.
