    Sorry if this seems like a stupid posting, but I'm wondering what exactly these types of cases are functionally doing. I've been using Treos since the 300, and have had the 600, 650 and now mulling the 700p (though waiting to see if the speed lag is resolved), and have never used any case for them (I've tried many leather cases over the years, but never liked the way they look or fit). While I've dropped them several times in the past, they never have broken or had the screens cracked like my old Pilot 1000 and PalmPilot Professionals did when dropped (way back!).

    I'm wondeing if I've just been lucky or whether these cases are really just to protect from scratches on the case (which I always have my share of, but don't really mind). With the exception of the crystal case with it's screen cover, the portion of the device that seems the most vulnerable is not really protected by these, right? Seems like everyone is using a screen protector to protect that, but do they really make a difference? In the old days I tried a screen protector and never liked the gritty feel compared to the naked screen. Let me know if there is 'standard' in that regard!

    Thanks in advance.

    Like yourself, I love the look of the treo and have not found a leather case that is satisfactory to me. I want a crystal case because it offers decent protection against scratches while keeping the treo looking naked. The surface material also makes it easy to slip into and out of a pocket. Also the relatively thin plastic does not bulk up the phone too much, which is nice. This is not the type of case that I expect to protect my phone from damage in a 30 ft drop or when falling in a puddle. I've never had either of those things happen and if they ever do I have insurance. I just want my treo to look new for as long as possible. I have not been rough with any of my previous treos, yet they all ended up with a few scuff marks. That is why I want a crystal case.

    Not AVAILABLE YET...

    I was in my local mall 2 days ago and a wireless kiosk had what looked like a thin hard case for the 650 no clip and the key portion was rounded up and it almost fit my phone... He said he would order the 700p version and have it in 4 days...If he does get it, I am going to go with that one.

    hey this looks cool, but I don't like how they squeeze in the 700 to also fit with the 650 and 600...

    These cases typically dont fit because the buttons on the 700p are not rounded like the 650. I tried one very similar but it was really ordered for my sisters 650..

    Well, my time has run out. I almost had an incident with my 700p and I can wait no longer. I am heading Vaja. I really wanted this case but my baby can't wait any longer ciao

    If you are holding out for the Crystal Case, there are many cheaper alternatives to Vaja. It would suck to spend all that money on a Vaja just to ditch it for a $30 (or cheaper on eBay) case. Thaat was my experience with my 650. I ended up with a perfectly good Vaja case that I never used since my $6 eBay crystal case, that I bought later, worked better for me.

    the wait is killing me.

    I contacted Seidio yesterday about this and was told that it is still in progress, but that it had been pushed back by other projects and that they don't know when it will be released.

    Big Bummer.

    WOW I dont like that update
  15. #155  
    Yeah . . . especially when we were told in a couple of weeks . . . I know a lot of people have been waiting for this case.

    I gave up and tried Best Skins Ever.com . . . I don't know that I would try anything else. Give them a try . . . they are cheap. Worst case you remove them and try something else.

    Hooray!!

    I dropped my 700p at the bank yesterday. Luckily it hit a padded chair on the way down and it escaped with no marks.

    I can't wait!!
