Default Need a good case...

Please Login to Remove!

For my 7290 I bought the Krusell Handit, which is an awesome case for the 7290. It has several spots for credit cards.. I can hold the case (with the phone in) and type really easy..

So, basically what I am looking for it the same thing for my 8700. I tried the handit with my 8700 but its much like a small child putting on mommy or daddy's shirt.. I need to have a place for cash and cards as well as total access to all buttons, wheels and screen..

Does anyone have any suggestions? (Hopefully > $20 USD)

Thanks!

I think I may go with the Krusell "handit" for my 8700. I am wonder if anyone has that and how did they like it?
Otherwise what case do you use??

i say if you have had a good experience with the krusell case for the 7290 and are confident enough with them, then go for the krusell case for the 8700.

hope this helped,

As requested..

Here is my 8700g in the Orbit Case..


Side View


Another View


The thing I miss the most is the multiple credit card slots.
This one has two "expansion" card slots.. Which is kind of stupid for the 8700 series..

So, I make the best of the situation by putting guitar picks and a key in there.. I am super-careful with the key cause I don't want to damage my device..

Overall, its a very sturdy case and makes typing and using the 8700 much easier..

I would recommend the acquisition of this case for anyone that is a avid user of the 8700..

I give it
