Default Premium fitted case for 7130

Please Login to Remove!

Are there any makers out there with current stock or plans in the near future to stock something in a premium leather fitted case for the 7130? Is this not a popular enough version for the makers to design something?

What do you mean by "premium leather fitted case?"

Have a look at www.fortte.com

I have the fortte case for my 7130e, and I like it very much! (Also, fortte is sponsor of these forums. Be sure to look for discount code in the sponsor section.)

I have never been a big fan of the swivel belt clips, they stick out too far from the belt. The cases look nice, but I will stick with the ones that have a fixed belt clip.

I completely forgot to mention that I have the extended battery. I would like case like the sena cases or the fortte cases, but neither of them have cases for the 7130e with extended battery.

Have you looked at gizmoskin (www.gizmoskin.com)? Great little leather case with a unique swivel clip that is very discreet.

I have a Krusell. I wear it horizontally and it is awesome in workmanship.

Thick and rich and smells like new buffalo leather.

Can use a clip or take it off and use the snaps and leather that goes around the belt and then clips. awesome system.

I got the Sena leather case for my 7105T, the one with the magnetic cover. Looks great, but the fit is too tight, magnets dont hold the cover down too well. No problem though, if you want to keep it in your pocket. Just be advised that the Sena cases, because of the leather on the sides of the devices for the 7100 series, will make typing a bit cumbersome, as the leather will get inthe way of the edge characters & letters.

I've also used a leather belt case that supports the auto-screen shut off feature, nice case, made by Naztech.. Unfortunately, the stiching is rather harsh, and the "rough" internal edges, I'm afraid, might scratch my 7105t screen.

I just switched to a RIM black leather belt case. Love it, same as the nylon case that ships with the blackberry, but in leather. It's the only case I'll use now.

They have fixed clips as well - they have several clip options, and even do custom work on request. You can't lose with Fortte, trust me. I had a special request to place a fixed clip on my custom case horizontally because I like to wear them sideways, check out what they did for me.

I'm still using the stock case. It's a pretty tight fit, and I'd love to get a premium leather case but I haven't seen one that I like enough to take the plunge especially since all the ones I've seen don't talk about the extended battery.

Is anyone making a fitted leather case for the 7130e with a see-through screen cover and an open keyboard area? Something like what Vaja makes for the 7100?

does the zipper have any effect or contact with the device around the edges where the zipper runs? i'm concerned about it scractching the battery door, even though i'm sure it can be replaced.

I would LOVE the OEM leather case for the 7130e if it had two things. Something to postively attach or latch under the belt hem and something to prevent the blackberry from coming (sqeezing) out of the holster on its own.
