    Is there a plastic holster for the 8800?

    Advertisement



    I recently just ordered a new 8800 from amazon.com for a great price. As I browsed through all the threads, I noticed that the phone doesnt come with a holster like the 8700 but it comes with a leather pouch type holster instead. Does anyone know if there are or will be any plastic holsters?? I love using the plastic click in types. I think i may even return it for a 8700. Crazy huh?

    I have to say that this is one of my biggest complaints with the new devices. The plastic holsters were the best for securing the device and for feel. I can barely feel the 8800 vibrate in the pouch. And it is a pain having to find the strap when needing to put the device back in the pouch.

    I definitely want a design for the plastic holster for the 8800

    I would just return it if I were you. Not having a holster is really annoying.

    Somebody will make on for it, probably a way better one than you get for free. It's a $5 item for goshsakes. It's like returning the iPod 'cause you don't like the earbuds!

    Cyborg.. Hold out for a bit... I am sure that many companies are in the works making holsters and pouches for the 8800... these things take a bit of time to produce.....

    More than likely, you'll find holsters online at www.seidioonline.com and some of the other companies that tend to have a variety of BlackBerry accessories. These companies just need a chance to design a holster. It is the same thing with the BB Pearl. It just took awhile before a plastic holster was available as well as other accessories.
    Be patient my friend. I'm sure that it is on its way soon!

    I'd give Seidio about another 3 weeks and I'm sure they'll have some great stuff out!

    I prefer the leather holster and was happy I didn't have to wait for one for it.

    I'm very happy with mine as well. It swivels, looks stylish, and I love the magnetic clasp. I do agree that I don't feel the vibrations as well as it could be...

    The 8800's holster for me is far better than the 870x plastic holster. The detents in the plastic wear down over time, making the holster too loose. I've had my 8700 pop out of my holster too many times when I get out of my car.
    And if you have the older holster with the partially cut out detents, those snap off, making the holster useless in any position other than vertical.

    The 8707h (Japanese version) came with a nylon holster that was similar to the 8800's but had an inferior clip.
    It doesn't record video. Get over it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I have my 8703 in a sena leather case, and I haven't had any problems with not feeling the vibrate. Oh, that's probably because I never take my hands off of it.
    Don't worry there will be a huge selection of aftermarket holsters out soon.

    I wonder what y'all are doing... My 8700c's holster never had these problems and it was purchased on launch day (so it's as old as they get aside from the prototypes).

    Seidio is working on the swivel lock rubberized plastic holster, rubberized cases for BB8800. They will be available in about 3 weeks. If you would like to be notified when they are released, please send an email to BB8800@seidio.com
