    In lieu of real Palm Pre news, here's a case

    From Engadget Mobile...

    Not my thing though, I tend to get stuck on those with my clumsy hands.

    Yuck. Looks like rolling luggage. And if it's going to fully enclose the Pre with a clear front, why would it face in? Kinda dumb. I'll take a simple face out holster or face in if need be for when I need one.

    HID.E.OUS. if they're going to make it all tacky/plasticky, might as well go all the way & offer it in bright colors & graphics, so it looks intentional.

    The point though is.... it's out there, meaning that Sprint or Palm, must have given them one to develop that hideous thing!

    Heh. When commenting at PreCentral, I forgot to mention that the thing's kinda ugly. But yeah. It's kinda ugly.

    But y'know, I tend to think anything like this is ugly. Translucency takes something away from the device. Transparency or opacity would be a better choice (aesthetically).

    * Stuck virtual keyboard? Partial erase AND folder deletion worked for me.

    I'd take one. For free.

    It ruins the whole look of the Pre. I wouldn't buy it.

    A Goat wouldn't even wear that thing...

    I guess I could hook it to my horns and have all the other Goats beat me up for looking like a punk.

    Seriously though... That doesn't look too nice.

    I'm quite fond of the Palm leather pouch for the Pre. I think it's much classier than a plastic holster.

    well even a cheap pleather case would be classier than that holster. Holsters to me should be functional and playthrough, otherwise you might as well get a leather pouch.

    Ick. I'll stick with my Nutshell, thank you very much.

    All right, I'll be the weird one. I actually like that holster. Sure the looks aren't the best, but I'm not sure I've ever seen a great looking holster anyway. I like the fact that BOTH sides of the Pre are protected. It also keeps the headphone jack, ringer switch, and side buttons accessible. I usually go for function over form, and this looks like it has good function.

    Having said all that, though, I'll probably just put the Pre in my pocket. But if I need a case, this could be a contender.

    They come out with this, yet I can't get a word back from any of the Palm people on facebook about getting a dummy/demo or whatever to ProClip to actually make something useful like a induction charging car cradle.

    I'd have to handle the real thing to know if it would work for me.

    I agree, but only because I tend to just toss my phone in my pocket and if I ever get this baby I'm going to try my best not to destroy it with accidental scratches.

    If the first few posts had been positive, everybody would be going ga-ga over this one.

    I don't use cases, but if I did, this would be fine with me.
