Corey: I was curious about the open faced fortte case. Does the case obstruct your use of the keys? Are you able to type, use the trackwheel and esc key with this case in place?
Also, how easu is it to replace and remove the case from your belt when a call/message/etc comes in? I am torn between a regular vertical case and this open faced case.
The advantage I see with the open face case is that it's ALWAYS in the case thus preventing any danage from droppage, etc. Although, you're right- the face is somewhat exposed. However I don't really rub up against htings too often. And more often than not the case will be under a sweater, shirt of some kind of a suit jacket.
