    Fortte or Vaja Case?

    Advertisement



    hello all,

    i'm looking for a fancy new birthday case for my bb 8700g. i think it's between the vaja:

    http://www.vajacases.com/Vaja/catalo...sEN/ari052ck_1

    and the fortte:

    http://www.fortte.com/scr/showproduct.php/115?type=0

    i have no idea if these links will work... i've heard good and bad on the vaja, and i'm not too keen on the plastic covering for the screen (i'd rather use removable screen shields) but i am oh so enticed by their girlie colors. as for the fortte case, i think it is sans screen shield, but i'm not positive-- and i'm hoping the "watermelon" color looks more vibrant than it does on the site.

    anyone own these, or have any thoughts? or a different case altogether?

    thanks!

    This is the case that I have and I love it...Yes, it is a little bulky and takes some getting used to, but its a great case, and if you drop your Blackberry, there will probably be no damage from it...

    I have dropped my BB in a parking lot face down and it slid about 20 feet, but with this case, there was no damage to it at all...The front flap is very well padded and the entire device is protected...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I have 2 Fortte Open Face Cases and I have to say I love them. The added screen protector I had built in prevents scratches and the cases leave all ports open, something I can't tell with the Vaja cases.

    I have a Fortee i just had made for my 8700c and i totally dig it. It is the open face model. I personaly dont care for that over flap thingy. Gets in my way.... I had a Vaja case for my Treo and it worked will for that phone. They are both well constructed I will say that. It depends on the style you are looking for. Both are a good product.

    sounds like either one? one thing i wanted to be sure of is NO screen protector built-in, but it sounds like you can opt to go without-- however, erica, you seem to love your screen protector. do you find that there's a glare with it?

    suzzy, did you go for a different color for your fortte? i'd like to try watermelon, but it looks kind of brown on my screen... and i'm with you on the flap. sorry N8DBB!

    maybe it will come down to price...

    The vaja is what I would go with between the two. It looks more professional.

    I didnt go with Watermelon. I with with a dark tan/blue combo. It looks really classy.
    My Vaja Treo case was a Navy /Orange combo. I got tons of comliments on it.

    I am very happy with the Fortee. It does look very professional on my 8700c. Even got my name embossed on the back of it.
