    Has anyone ever bought from here:

    They have a very interesting aluminum hard case for the 650, and I was just curious if anyone has done business w/ them before.

    That's the Innopocket case:

    ...and according to Innopocket they're still in pre-order phase.

    I had the one for the 600. Worked great in my golf bag. Never put a mark on my 600 when it was in the hard case. The exterior of the hard case itself does scratch easier than I hoped.

    I think they worked on that. The specs now say "Light weight aircraft grade scratch-resistant andoized aluminum." The 600 specs don't say that.

    Since you had the 600 one, could you answer these questions?

    - Can you talk on the phone with it closed? There's holes for it, but can you talk and hear clearly through it?

    - Would it fit in a front jeans pocket? It's not supposed to add much bulk, but there's only so much room to begin with.

    - Is it easy to type with it still in the case and the door open? Does it get in the way of your right hand?

    - Does it make the rings too soft? Vibrate becomes pretty much useless, right?

    Thanks!

    I had a Treo 600 and the Innopocket Aluminum Hard Case. When I upgraded to the 650 I just used a dremel to make the case work with my 650. I am in the Air Force, so I need a case that can take some punishment.

    The aluminum has held up well. Many abrasions, some drops and a million bumps later the case still looks nice. It is scratched on all sides, but still looks good IMO.

    I have the 650 case on pre-order with fedex shipping, just waiting to get it. That window in the front is going to be awesome!

    You can talk just fine with it in the case and closed. There is a hole for the mic and ear piece.

    I don't wear jeans, but it fits in my Khaki's and shorts just fine. Most of the time it is in my BDU pocket, and it does well there too.

    It is easy to type with the case flipped open. The lid does not get in the way. In fact it gives a sort of extra support as the lid fits in the crook of my thumb and finger nicely. It also adds an extra way to handle the treo as it is sort of like a book cover...

    No problems with rings as the speaker is open, vibrate is diminshed in most circumstances (like in pants it is more difficult to feel the vibrations), but if it is on a table or something it is amplified as it moves around like a bee in a bonnet.

    The case is what I want in a case, but then I have been partial to metal cases since the RhinoSkin Titanium Slider for the Palm III. Military needs are not often the same as civilian ones.

    Good Luck in choosing the right case, I know I am a case junkie but always end up with the metal ones....

    Cheers

    GregV,

    On my 600, I was easily able to to talk and hear through the case. Don't know about your jeans, but it was quite a bit of bulk in my pocket. I didn't use the case that way. It was primarily for my golg bag. Typing with the door open wasn't much of a problem since I use my thumbs. I don't recommend talking with the door open. when my phone was in my golf bag, It was all too easy to hear rings. Can't tell you how it effected vibrate.

    Mattyparanoid,

    My 650 did not fit (thickness-wise) in the 600 case. how did you work that out? I sold it with my 600 because of this.

    Dunno, mine just fit. Had the leather case at the register with my Treo 650 when I was upgrading, took the 600 out, slid the 650 in (gingerly), saw that it worked and told the salesgirl to take the leather case back...

    Cheers

    I see the innopocket goes for 29.99 on its home site and 27.99 on some other Asian site. Anybody knows any other places where we can see it cheaper?

    It looks like a really nice case.

    Does anyone know if these cases are the same? Similiar specs? I wonder why there is a difference in price as it seems as if they come from the same manufacturer. Does anyone have it yet?

    They are two different animals. In my opinion the Innopocket case looks more elegant and more classy than the Pacific Rim. However, The pacific Rim seems to work better with the keyboard. I might end up buying the Innopocket case.
