Default Seidio 8700 Canada

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone know how or where to get a good quality skin/protector for the Blackberry 8700r in Canada. I looked at Seidio's 8700 which looks perfect but their timly shipping into Canada may be a problem and I don't see any Canadian Distribution for their products.

Thanx

I put the InvisibleShield on my 8700r (www.shieldzone.com) and it's been great. Very slick product (pardon the pun). I ordered the complete full body skin but you can get just the display protection. Took 10 days to clear into Canada, no additional charges at the border.

I've had good experiences so far ordering into Canada from Seidio and ScreenPatronus. No undue delays. Mind you, I am still waiting on my second Seidio order: the charging cradle.

Resurrecting this thread because I'm starting to become concerned about my Seidio cradle. Before I was worried that it wouldn't work - now I'm worried that I will never get it! (Which reminds me of the Woody Allen joke where they're complaining that the food at a resort is so bad - "Yes, and such small portions!)
I was part of the original pre-release order group that purportedly shipped on May 23rd. Still hasn't arrived....

David, received today (at last!) with thanks. I certainly do not blame Seidio for the mechanisations of the "Canada Border Services Agency".

Further to that, and the topic of this thread, my Seidio holster was valued at $5 more than this cradle (but shipped in a smaller box), was not stopped at customs and arrived quickly. This cradle was stopped by customs and delayed accordingly, assessed $4 in tax and another $5 in handling.

Thanks Big Brother!
