I received my all black Blackberry 8700c/r Fortte leather case today. So thought I get some images up for everyone to see.
My initial thoughts: I love it.
1. The case is beautiful.
2. The leather is nice.
3. I like the belt clip. As someone else mentioned earlier it does not ratchet, but swivels freely. It doesn't really bother me.
4. Removing the case from he clip is very easy.
5. Someone else also mentioned that the case sticks out farther on the belt than the OEM holster. I have to say, if it does, it's not by much. It feels very slim on the belt to me.
FYI, it does have a magnet and it does work with the 8700.
Anyway, here are some photos. I'll be happy to answer anything I can about the case.
I ordered the vertical version. It's so nice I've placed a second order for the same case in another color.
