    So I have a Pre 3 that I have never really used since I don't have a case for it. I know there are screen protectors (which I need) but since it was never really released, there is not much in Pre 3 specific cases.

    What have my fellow Pre 3 users found to be acceptable cases? I use a side opening belt clip case with my Pre 2 that I got with the Verizon accessory kit when they had them on sale. Is there anything similar that fits the Pre 3?

    Yeah I got one of those but I don't use it. Have to take it out to use the TS. I use a cheap Fuji-film camera case that attaches to my belt. Has a mag press stud. Sorry I don't have link to it but I got it years ago in Asda for my Pre 2.

    I used to use a BlackBerry Torch holster case my friend got for me. It's a bit tight initially but after the leather gets worked in it's fine.

    I'm in a similar scenario. I recently purchased a Pre 3 and have been looking for cases and/or pouches. Being an original Pre owner, I had no idea that the accessories for the Pre 3 were limited. I've been looking on a few different websites, including eBay and this is one that I'm considering:

    XL Black Secured Pouch Case Cover Holster Wallet Pocket for HP Pre 3 | eBay

    I may end up buying it, and if I do I'll share my experience on here. Hope this helps.

    I always used the soft slipcase that came with my Pre+, so when I got my Preł, I bought this slipcase. It's a perfect fit! I didn't even find that the pull tab was necessary after the first day. I do have to be careful to not lower my ringer volume when I extract my phone from the case. I don't recommend inserting the phone "head down," as the gesture area is exposed and can be accidentally touched.

    Has it proven more durable than the Seido Innocase did on the Pre+?

    Is it Touchstone compatible?

    Since everyone talking about cases for the unreleased Palm Pre 3, has anyone bought or seen this new case(not so much a case but it's interesting) for the Pre 3 it's Carbon Fiber texture design give super cool to the already sexy looking Palm Pre 3 aesthetics. I'm just looking a for a case that it offers a custom-fit to the my Pre 3 device while offering maximum protection from scratches and also a bit of style to my phone.

    Does it seem a good fit ? And it only cost like $20 dollars:

    thats a skin not a case, i had one but removed it, when placed inside my pdair case he sides would peel off and get squished, its just a skin u have to peel off and stick to the pre3 then you have to use a hairdryer to make it pliable and makes it stick and fit better.

    Ive come to realise its only good on its own or in a case that doesnt grip into its case, in my instance, the pdair case grips the sides/back of the phone so you can still slide the keyboard out in the case, its a good design, just doesnt couple with the skinomi carbon fibre skin.

    The skins will stop scratches but thats about it, if your worried about dropping it then you need a proper case, so youd need a pouch/sock type case if you plan on using the skin.

    heres a pic of my old skinomi carbon fibre skin and my pdair case.

    i liked the skin, its just i like the pdair case more so the skin had to go with it being squashed/deformed by the case gripping what should have been the phone but ended up peeling back the skin over time.

    Krusell Vinga large works fine. I attached the Krusell Multidapt adhesive adaptor, which fixes the case to the leather belt holder. After almost two years of daily use, it looks a bit outworn, though. I call it vintage...

    My Developer Pre3 has this, but I also got a sleeve, Like the Palm Pre Sleeve, but it is a little bigger to hold the Pre3 during storage.

    The Best way is to mold it via a hair dryer (it shrink fits the device)...

    I dropped my Preł while it was in my Dicota slipcase--wouldn't you know that it landed on the exposed corner of the phone, cracking the bezel. I bought this Skinomi skin to put on it in hopes that it will keep the crack from getting any worse. It just arrived a few days ago, so I've not put it on, yet. Here's hoping that it will still slide into the slipcase without peeling off!

    FYI, the "carbon fiber" is just a look--my understanding is that it's made of the same stuff as the Skinomi screen protector.

    So that is a top release leather case and the phone hangs vertically on your belt? My current Pre 2 case is side opening and sits sideways on my belt. How easy is it to get the phone out of the case?

    I checked that out and one of the Amazon what others have viewed link took me to the side address version of this case. Anyone have any experience with it?

    Sorry for the late reply. Yes. It's very easy, as the locking strap pulls out the phone.

    In the meantime I got a replacement Vinga. The new one has no rubber to pull back the strap (which made a nice evening DIY sewing project to add) and fits a little bit tighter.

    But the Vinga'a leather finish quality could be better. The surface peels off already after 4 months of daily use.
