This combo includes one of our BRAND NEW Colored Skin Cases as well as the Spring Clip Swivel Holster that is designed specifically for your SKINNED 8800. . Separately, these products are quite effective in providing a more efficient way of using your 8800. Paired together, this combo is an absolute MUST HAVE for any 8800 user!

Features of the Skin Case:
  • High-end and low-profile skin case is a perfect fit for your 8800
  • Slim and will protect your Blackberry from any scratches and/or possible impact shocks
  • Made up of a very high-grade polymer that is extremely strong, durable, tear resistant, and longer lasting
  • Anti-slip properties of the case will give your 8800 a better grip on all types of surfaces
  • 8800 remains very usable inside the case - there are cutouts for the mini USB port, headset port, antenna, and speaker - and the keyboard is left uncovered, making it easier to use
Features of Skinned Holster:
  • Ultimate in convenience and functionality
  • Easiest way to carry and fully protect your skinned Blackberry 8800
  • User-friendly, allowing you to remove your skinned Blackberry 8800 from the top instead of the bottom, making the movement much more natural

Default Got mine today

I received my skin and holster combo today. I previously used the same combination on my 8700, which I felt was a huge improvement over the stock holster.

It appears the 8800 holster will perform as expected. It does not seem as rigid as the 8700 version, but it retains the ratchet and the soft lining which touches the front of the 8800. It has an indentation for the trackball as well as the sleeper magnet. Overall, it holds the unit securely and allows easy one handed in and out.

With regard to the skin, again it is very similar to the 8700 version. I seem to have a love hate relationship with the skins, I like the grip improvement and the protection they offer, but dislike the feel of the skin on the edge of the keyboard and around the trackball. I had the same issues on the 8700 and I never got completely used to having it on, but felt the protection offered was worth the trade off. For me, the extra grip is critical for the 8800with the slippery chrome sides.

Overall, IMO it beats the naked 8800 with the leather holster, but as always YMMV.
