Also like I said, I did not know there was a blue 8700
I don't think there is any way to tell where the magnet is on this case by looking at the picture.. It is a magnet internal to the case. The magnet near the top is for something different (the magnetic flap)
The $10 cases seem like leather, but they are not, they are a high grade PVC with a leather spray applied. My Ex's dad used to own a leather factory in Toronto and I took interest in learning about it.
I agree with you about making sure no one gets ripped off... I am pretty comfy with this seller, I am going to buy it, and if all goes well I will have my 8700r next week. I will update you guys and let you know if it works.
