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 Seidio Innocase 2

I got my hands on the Seidio Innocase 2 and Holster for my BlackBerry 9700 Bold 2 about a week ago. I wanted more protection for the phone and none of the classic leather cases impressed me enough to purchase one. Decided to go with a well known and proven skin…

I got my case and holster from CrackBerry’s online store. Here’s some info taken off their site about the product…

“The Seidio Innocase II Surface is crafted from a hard yet flexible material and it provides an amazingly thin layer of protection for your BlackBerry Bold 9700 without adding the excessive bulk of other cases.

The Innocase II consists of interlocking top and bottom pieces that fit your phone snugly, and Seidio's signature soft touch finish provides a great feel and better grip without attracting lint.”

What I like about this case is how easy it was to install it and remove if and when you wanted to. But, it’s no so easy that you’d have to worry about it, because it has a snug and solid fit. It feels very secure in the hands and I’m sure it’ll protect it enough as long as I do my part and not make a serious mistake... more photos here.

The quality of Seidio Innocase 2 is second to none. It’s that good and I’m pressed. I also love that silky finish on the product.

Since I bought the whole package (case and holster) you know I had to also take a couple flicks to show everyone what the product looks like. It’s the designer/photographer in me. Here’s the product info for the Seidio Innocase Lock Holster for the BlackBerry Bold 9700…

“Seidio has an industry first! A Spring Lock Innocase Holster that holds your device securely and will help eliminate accidental dropping.

The unique spring clip features a lock on it that moves up and down to "lock" your Smartphone into the holster. This holster is also user-friendly, allowing you to remove your BlackBerry Bold 9700 from the top instead of the bottom, making the movement much more natural. Your phone is carried facing inward against a soft, velvet foam pad, safe-guarding the screen from possible scratches and other mishaps”

My initial impression of the holster is just OK. And after giving it some time, it’s still just OK. I feel the quality of the holster isn’t on par with the Innocase 2. Just a regular holster that I wish they put more thought into it like the Innocase 2. One of the reviews I’ve read on the holster states, “the locking mechanism leaves alot to be desired”. I agree, it could have been designed better and for the most part, don’t use the locking part because of that… more photos here.

All in all, I really love the Seidio Innocase 2 and the holster, just Ok. The holster does what it’s supposed to, but just not as nice looking. And I’m OK with that. Would I buy this all over again? Yes. That is until I can find that perfect leather case that I’m still pursuing.

There are more detailed photos of the products here from LapadaGallery.com. I try to take as many photos as I can to show what the items look like that aren’t found on online store descriptions…

  3. I wish I could answer that for you. Unfortunately, I don't have an OEM charging dock to try it out with. Sorry that I'm not much of a help for you...
