Can anybody tell me why RIM decided to stop making the plastic holsters for the new blackberrys. I hate these leather things.....

I would imagine because they were uncomfortable and clunky

Devices were known to self-launch from the plastic holsters. Even the BBs did not like them.

I hate them also.. they cant withstand shit.. i like the old rugged tried and true style... in my line of work i need something that can withstand a little .. well maybe a lot of abuse on a daily basis.. these soft pansy holsters are crap..sorry magnet strap crap.. I've bought all the OEM style holsters they offer for the curve and 2 cheap ones off ebay.. all suck..

It is a love hate thing for sure. Everyone looks for something different in a holster. BUT, those plastic holsters are responcible for the only time I dropped my device, not just dropped but it flew several feet trying to get it out of that stupid plastic POS!

Also these plastic holsters were notious for scratching. They would be a disaster on today more delicate finishes found on our devices
