Question Not enough Accessories for 8900!

Please Login to Remove!

Why is it, that I cannot seem to find a case that I want for my 8900!!
It seems like everyone makes cases for the storm and the bold, but, the red-headed step child of the blackberry family seems to be the 8900
WHY?

Try looking for cases for the 8300 series. I believe that the device dimensions are identical.

just so you know, if you get a 8300 case it more then likely will not put the device to sleep with the magnet, as the magnet was relocated on the 8900... the only case that i know of that will still put the 8900 to sleep is the seidio spring holster... any and every other leather holster i have seen/used does not work to put it to sleep

The dimensions are very close, but not perfect. Plus, the buttons, mic, camera and USB port don't line up the same.
I have a Body Glove Silicone case with swivel clip mount on the back. Since I can't find something similiar for the 8900, I cut the appropriate holes and slots so I could access the buttons, the microphone hole and the camera. It works, and it is better than a couple other options I tried, but it looks like Frankenstein.
I email Body Glove and they stated that it isn't up to them when it is made, it is up to Fellowes, since they make their cases. I tried contacting Fellowes and they had no idea what I was talking about.

It's frustrating.

I have a BSE on my 8900, and a Vaja classic case on the way. That's all the accessories I need!

Vaja is way too expensive! But it looks so nice
I do agree that there are not a lot of choices. Hopefully it is bcos it is still new..

I have a BSE on my phone, and a silicone case. I wish there were more accessories, and I really want best buy to start stocking them. I have a $25 gift certificate waiting until the day they are finally stocking 8900 accessories.

The 8300 is a little wider and maybe a tiny bit thicker than the 8900. Be careful with that. Man the Vaja cases are cool looking. I wish the slipcase had a magnet in it and I'd probably get it for $70. The fact it has nylon webbing on the sides is not that great but the leather looks very cool in those colors.
