    Here is my review of the Palm AirCase.

    I know some of you are interested in the Palm AirCase and even though I decided on another case as my preferred one, I figured I may as well review this one since I have it.

    Pros:
    • Nice fit. Case snaps on easily enough, the key is to go around the phone pressing on the edges of the case until it snaps in place.
    • All cutouts are in their proper place. Since this is a clear case, what's really nice is that there are no unnecessary cutouts for the LED, IR port or external antenna port (does anyone even use that thing?)
    • Clear case allows you to see your phone's true color. Not that important with the black Centro but I'm sure red Centro owners will appreciate that.


    Cons:
    • Somewhat difficult to remove. While it may get easier with practice, I was worried that I may end up breaking it. I started by getting a corner separated and then slowly moved around the case.
    • Lint & dust shows up easily between the case and the body of the Centro. This really shows up on a black Centro but probably not as bad on the red. Make sure you have a clean phone before installing.
    • A little slippery. I've been used to using a skin or rubberized case that had a better grip. The smooth plastic had me worried that I might lose my grip on the phone, but it I may just be overly paranoid!


    Overall, I would give this case a 4 out of 5 stars. The somewhat difficult removal, trapped lint & no "grippiness" to it prevented me from giving it a perfect score. I will say that it would probably look much better on the red Centro. Black just shows up dirt and lint too easily (not really the fault of the case.)

    I'll post some pictures. Since I probably won't be using this case that much at this time, I figured I would take pics from all angles while I had it installed.

    Thanks for the review.

    I want a case with an LCD clear protector flip cover though.

    You know what is interesting about this case. I wonder if the inside is paintable? Even if you paint it black on the inside, just the back half it might not show as much dust. Or pick any other color to go with your black centro.

    No. This one has no holster attachment, the back is completely smooth.

    Man for free overnight shipping that is tempting. A nice coat of gloss black on the insides would really look sharp.

    Why would you want to paint the inside and hide the silver strip around the body and front?

    That is Treo Launcher, my personal preference as well.

    If you drop a case like that does the case pop apart (which of course will send the phone bouncing unprotected)?

    Has anyone dropped any phone in case like this?? Just curious on the post-fall results!

    Thanks

    Considering the degree of difficulty I had removing it, I wouldn't think it would pop off so easily. I'm not brave enough to perform a drop test, though!

    The launcher is TreoLauncher and I got the starry space wallpaper from Laurifier's site.
