    I liked seeing a review of this case (I've used it for over a year). However, Palm has a new replacement version of this case which IMHO is superior.

    http://web.palm.com/products/Product...003&cat=290003

    It fixes the old case's biggest problem: typing on the keys that lay at the edges of the keyboard. The new cutaway makes this a breeze. With the old case this was a real pain, especially the Option key.

    The camera is also no longer covered by a flap. I'm using it with a 650; it fits 700's as well.

    Hmm.. Palm's own description says "fold down flap protects camera lens" on this new(er) model

    Do NOT send email to harv at treocentral dot com - it will never reach me.. forwarding from that address to my real address was hijacked in early 2008, and I can't fix it.. send me a private message instead or email me directly at my RR address..

    The Form Fit case does indeed have a camera flap. Its hinge doesn't look much like a hinge, but it does fold out of the way so the camera can be used easily.

    I have one of the "newer" cases, apparently. I can confirm that this model doesn't limit the use of the keys at the edge of the keyboard, as you can probably tell from the picture in my article.

    Oooooo, on closer look at the pic on Palm's site, it appears I do have the previous version of the case. However, even with my big klutzy fingers, I have no trouble using the keyboard, which lands not even close to the edge of the window, although the edge doesn't wrap off the side of the Treo as it does in Palm's picture. (http://web.palm.com/products/templat...003&cat=290003)
    The line of the case down the side also has no indent for the widened keyboard section. So the pictured product is NOT what I have in my hand, and not what I reviewed.

    Besides, it's $29.99, instead of the $14.95 that TreoCentral has on the "Palm Form Fit Case."

    I don't know about your hands, but the old case drove me nuts with the keys at the edges. Look at a side by side comparison:

    To be honest, I always pop the Treo out of the case when I want to use the stylus. I like the plastic to lay flat above the screen, and not be deformed... YMMV...
