Default Leather Cases

Please Login to Remove!

Are there any high-end leather cases available for the Storm, like they have for the iPhone, i.e. Orbino? Or at least something that allows you to see the screen. Not the rubber protectors.

Fortte does not have them yet. But they are one of the best.

I have read a-lot of reviews and have already ordered a case from
http: / / tuff-as-nuts.com

I broke 3 of the 8830 cases as the clips are made from cheap plastic. I hope this one is better (sure costs a-lot more)

I have the Sena BLACKBERRY 8800 MAGNETFLIPPER CASE for my Blackberry 8830, and I love it! It has a snug fit and aligns with the buttons, etc, perfectly.


I contacted Sena about the availability of a similar case for my Storm, yesterday, and here is their response:

Quote:
Thank you for contacting Sena Cases.

Unfortunately, we currently do not have a case for the Blackberry Storm. However, this may change in the future. We will keep your contact information on file and notify you if and when such a case is available.

Thank you for your interest,

Fon Chen
Sena Cases
I will post here, if and when I get a reply from Fon Chen

Fortte has a 30% discount coupon floating around the forums, I think it's good until some time in January.

I have used Sena Cases as well and been pretty happy with them. I checked their site last week in anticipation I would need one. Thanks for the responses!

Fortte now has cases available for the Storm, one open face and 2 vertical cases that start at $29.99 for black leather. The cases can be customized by color, clip choice and embossing. The vertical cases have sleep mode. I just ordered a pink vertical case with my name embossed. Custom ordered cases will take 3 to 4 weeks. I also had one for my Curve, so I say personally these are quality cases.

Vaja Leather are some of the best cases and the most expensive! They have not released the storm version yet, they will range in price from $60-$320

I bought the RIM-issued leather case from Verizon in a store ($24.99 list, $19.99 for a subscriber, I guess....model #RIMSTORMPCH).

I like this case very much, complete with swivel belt clip.

Here is the link.

I returned a holster I bought from Best Buy for this.

+1 on the Tuff as Nuts cases. Good leather and overall quality. I like the open pouch with a belt clip.

Hello to all, as this is my first post here. I checked out the Sena Cases website, and they now have Storm cases available. Since I'm too new, you'll have to go to the site yourselves.

I have a horizontal Fortte case for my iphone, Tried the Storm in it and it fit perfectly. Even the case closure magnet is in right place to put the Blackberry to sleep.

Nice case!

Default How about a case with to charge in too?

With the 9530 micro-usb charging port lower on the device than my previous BB's, you actually have to take it out of the case to charge it.

Has anyone seen a case that exposes the charging port so that it can stay in the case while charging?
