One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Blackberry 9700 Leather Pocket Pouch

I was pretty impressed with the accessories that were included with the Blackberry 9700. And that’s including the black leather case that they included with the whole package. But, it’s a top loading case and I typically use side loading leather cases. And here’s another but. But, all the other side loading belt cases suck in my opinion. So it’s my quest to find other options…

I came across the Blackberry 9700 Leather Pocket Pouch at a local store here in San Diego. I also bought this about a week after I purchased the Blackberry 9700 since I needed something not as bulky as the one that came with the unit and something more pocketable and inexpensive… more photos here.

Since it was inexpensive, I took the chance to give it the whole college try. The Pocket Pouch is pretty good quality and the stitching was pretty spot on. As you can see in the photos, the front of the pouch sports an aluminum rounded square Blackberry emblem and the bottom back sports the Blackberry logo embedded into the leather.

The first time I inserted the Blackberry 9700 in the Leather Pocket Pouch, it was a tight fit. A really, I mean really tight fit. I was afraid to push it all the way in, in fear that it would be stuck. But what the heck, I did it anyways and sure enough; I had trouble getting it back out. When having it pushed all the way in, I really didn’t have enough grabbing surface on the phone to pull it out. Eventually it came out and worked it enough that now it’s just loose enough… more photos here.

Something really bothered me about this case even though the quality was great. It was the fact that it stuck out so much on the top. I wanted a case that protects the whole phone and this does not. It only protects 80% of the bottom phone and not the top of it.

So, the search continues for the perfect case for my needs. At least I got some great flicks to share to other Blackberry users and maybe help others with their decisions if they were on the fence. But it sure does look like I may be heading towards skins though. But, that’ll be a review for another day…
