    I wanted that Pac Rim open keyboard case but I couldn't find it anywhere. But anyway I thought the Innopocket looked similar and that I could just cut off the bottom part. I did. And it's 10 bucks cheaper. Works great. Now I have drop/screen protection and access to my precious keyboard. And actually there are two more slits in the earpiece as opposed to the Pac Rim which I think helps.

    Looks great, what did you use to cut with?

    B&D Wizard saw with a grinding circle. Took only a minute or so to do both corners. I then filed down the edges to make it smooth and bam.

    That's very cool what you did to customize your Innopocket case.

    I did some customizing of my own too. I popped out the clear hard plastic covering the screen, so I can now tap the Treo screen with my fingers. This is much more useful to me now.

    Thanks for the info about popping out the screen. Mine got too scratched, now it's usable again.

    I assume you have a screen protector on there. Does anyone know if it matters if you use ones specifically for Palm or will screen protectors for other PDAs/Pocket PCs work just as well?

    BTW, Casey, do you still have the plastic piece and is it unscratched?

    I used a 32 tooth hacksaw and a metal file on mine, spent 7.50 at Lowes and it works VERY well.

    NICE! I just got the case and I've been planning to do the exact same thing.
    Did you have to take the lid off the hinges to cut the keyboard guard off?

    Heh, I did the same thing a couple of months ago. I used a dremel tool and a cut off wheel.

    My screen is scratched too. I wish it was designed to be user replaceable.

    Also, since aluminum is flexible the latch doesn't hold the screen cover door securely for long. A quick adjustment with pliers and its back on track but I wish it didn't require adjustment. Perhaps the Pac Rim case will have a more rigid design.

    What I would like is a leather case that has a similar design and holds the hard plastic screen cover in place magnetically and has user replaceable hard plastic screen covers.
