    Just wondering how the Blackberry "knows" that it's in the holster. I can't seem to see any sensors or sensors being depressed.

    The TMO leather case I have also has the magnet. You can see the backlight go on and off as you take it in and out.

    It's Canadian magic. They fill you full of Labatts and use a Jedi Mind Trick on you. Then a little gnome runs quickly in to turn off the screen =) j/k, its the magnet in the holster.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I remember the magic of the BB turning off. The magnet was well hidden in the case. Fooled my hubby for days.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~it has a photovotaeic cell in the screen. It senses the light level and adjusts accordingly.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I like the magic explanation better. You have to think about light sensors, but if it magic, its just magic.

    Re: ? of Curiosity.

    having never heard the word photovotaeic and not even daring attempt pronunciation, is that the real answer?
