    First Hands-On Review: Rubberized Pearl Case by Case-Mate - Coming Soon!

    Advertisement



    Verdict: The rubberized Blackberry Pearl Case by Case-Mate is a great accessory for all Pearl users.
    Pros: Tight fit around device, Illuminating Keypad, Unhindered Device Usage, Precise Cut-Outs & Water Resistant Keypad.
    Cons: Lacks Holster/Belt Clip (possibly to be offered by Case-Mate.com in the future)
    URL:
    www.case-mate.com
    Price:
    (Coming Soon)
    Overall Rating:
    5 out of 5

    To start, the design of this case is impeccable. All buttons are precisely covered by the case, so there is absolute ease of device usage. Additionally, the snug fit of the case, along with the exact placement of the cut-outs, allows unhindered usage of the many ports on the device. In turn, you will never have to adjust the case after putting it on the phone.



    The illuminating keypad is a plus for this case too. When the phone is lit, the keypad on the case illuminates via the light from the device. This allows your keypad to be visible even though it is completely covered.



    Another great attribute of this case is that it gives additional protection to the phone. The case offers a water resistant keypad and it protects the device from scratches when dropped. The case is made with two different surfaces, grip and non-grip. The non-grip surface is ideal for those who prefer to keep their phone in their pocket because it would be easier to remove. On the other hand, the grip surface is for those who prefer to carry their phone in their hand or in a bag.



    As you can tell, at this point, this case lacks a holster/belt-clip, which is its only downfall. In conclusion, the rubberized Blackberry Pearl Case by Case-Mate is a great accessory for all Pearl users. The flawless design says it all.




    *Black with the shine finish is the non-grip version



    *Black with the matted finish is the grip version



    Note: Empty Pearl 8120 replacement shell is present inside case in the photos.

    I really hope these are better than the Curve cases that CaseMate put out. They were "cardboard" leather and lasted myself and several of my friends only about a month. The holster clips were also poor quality. Maybe being rubberized, these will last longer.

    If you decide to give these a try, make sure that you purchase them directly from CaseMate as, unlike OtterBox, they do not honor any warranty if you purchase them from what they consider an "unauthorized" source - even then, it's a 90-day warranty; OtterBox is lifetime.

    I have to say for me a belt clip is a must.

    Any idea if this will fit in the Seidio holster?

    I currently use the hard rubberized shell and the belt clipped holster from Seidio.

    thanks for the review
    i really like the idea of protecting my keys. i am so OCD about my phone, this may be right up my alley. i may have to try the white one of these. i love pink, but that pink is reminding me of my mamaw (yes i am southern originally, LOL)

    That pattern is tres ugly!! I use one of those "screen guards" over the screen, and I have the Blackberry rubber case, which does not cover the keys. I am about as rough as it gets with my BB Pearl. In and out of my pocket with keys, coins, etc. I haven't had a problem.

    And my rubber case has a "grip" but still slides in and out nicely.
