| | BB 8830 different type of "skin" case
Please Login to Remove!
If this is already posted somewhere, then I'm sorry for wasting space, but I didn't find it yet - so.........
I just happened into a Cingular store and asked about BB 8800 series cases. The sales guy showed me a couple and then showed me a really nice "skin" type cover. This cover is black and VERY thin. It's also stamped "Blackberry" on the back side, so I assume it may be an OEM part. I purchased it for about $15 and found a couple of really nice features, compared to some other skin cases I've used. This one protects the back, sides, and top & bottom - but it leaves the screen and keyboard exposed (which I like, that is why I use a screen protector). It slips on and off really easy (for those upcoming battery swaps) and, while it makes the device less slippery - it is thin enough to allow the device to still fit in the OEM Verizon supplied belt case. It's also a different material that does not attract lint and such, like my other skin cases do.
All in all - I think many others will find this a nice protective addition to thier new 8830's.
