    Aluminum Case for 8700

    Does anyone have this. It looks nice, and is perhaps the ultimate protection for your Blackberry, but I'm wondering about the functionality of it. How easy it is to type, talk on the phone, and also the bulkiness of it. What do you guys (and gals) think?

    That's a scary looking case, looks like it'll definitely protect the BB though. Appears to be a little bulky as well, just my opinion. Do they have it in Metallic Pink?

    Indeed. I wish I could find one in a store that I could try out without having to go and order it....

    I agree. All of this stuff should be in the stores where we buy our phones since the carriers want our money anyway.

    LOL I couldn't find a case similar to that when I went thru 6 Pocket PC/PPC Phone Edition devices. Would have saved me a lot of headaches returning them for replacements.

    I have a Rhino-skin for my Tungsten T3 PDA. It came with a belt-clip that I tried a couple of times, but decided I prefer to just slip into the back pocket of my jeans. With the clip, the case stuck out too far from my belt and would bang on doors and such when I passed. It's a great case and protected my T3 wonderfully, even when I dropped it (which happened only once or twice).

    I'll be looking for an aluminum case for my BB 8700, if I decide to keep it. I'd really like to find a case that has room for the extended battery and door if I can find one.

    Ugh. That looks hideous! Does anybody really think their BB needs this? My BB takes a licking and keeps on ticking...

    I think my leaather holster will be fine most of the time. But there might be times, like when I'm doing field work, when I'll want something more substantial. The Rhino-skin worked really well for my T3.

    Meh, I've already got a couple of scratches on the housing. I guess there's no way to keep it pristine. Guess I'll just have to keep upgrading with every new model...
