    Best Case for Pearl

    Advertisement



    There are several cases out for the Pearl, but which is the best one?

    I'm looking for one that is able to take advantage of the Pearl's proximity sensor.

    1. Boxwave:

    Leather Sleeve without Leather Flap

    Boxwave

    2. ExtremePDA:

    Blackberry Pearl Flip Type Leather Case

    ExtremePDA

    3. Blackberry:

    BlackBerry 8100 Leather Pocket

    Blackberry

    I really like the Boxwave one because it has a plastic screen cover, but there's no mention on their site if it is compatible with the Pearl's sensor.

    I actually like this one now
    ExtremePDA:

    Blackberry Pearl Flip Type Leather Case

    http://extremepda.com/page/XPDA/PROD...BPEARLFLIPCASE

    Thanks for the post, as I want to get a case this week.

    Does anyone have experience yet with any of these mentioned cases for the Pearl?

    I am using using Boxwave leather sleeve, I'm not sure what you mean "the Pearl's proximity sensor" If you mean the magnet that puts the Pearl and all BB's to sleep.....The Boxwave sleeve doesn't have it.

    Just ordered this one. I guess the magnetic snap closure did it for me. Seems pretty secure, I hope?

    Has anyone tried the Boxwave Leather Sleeve without Leather Flap case? I'd like to hear some opinions on it.

    I use the extremepda case and I couldn't of imagined a better case myself (except for the fact you have to cut out a hole for the speaker) it fits so tight it does not make the pearl all that much bigger. I highly recommend it.

    I bought the Flip-type case from ExtremePDA, I returned it afterwards. I tried out Seidio's Rubberized Case and I love it. I've also tried their Jet Black skin and its decent.

    I have the Blackberry case for my pearl. Its not listed on the shopblackberry.com website, but its listed at other blackberry accessory websites. It is very small, and fits the pearl perfectly. I got mine from ebay for $14.99, thanks to a thread that was posted on this website!!!!!! It has a rotating clip, and a flap to keep the pearl in it, but the case keeps that pearl nice and tight.
