The moment my Bold 9930 was secured and my tracking number recorded the first thing that rushed over me was, “What about my Commuter Case!” Panic ensued when I scurried over to http://www.otterbox.com/ and sold out! What would I do?
Well apparently luck was on my side. I did manage to secure one of the Commuter Series Cases for the BlackBerry Bold 9900-9930. Maybe it was meant to be. I’d prefer to think it that way, since the Commuter has been my number 1 case for the last 3 devices. It’s the best all-a-round-case compared for comfort, style and protection in my opinion.
BlackBerry Bold 9900
BlackBerry Bold 9930
Access to all buttons and features
Silicone plugs provide coverage for ports
Includes a self-adhering protective film
Self-adhering clear screen protector
Durable silicone skin
High-quality polycarbonate outer shell
The Commuter Series is a rugged dual layer of protection. 1 impact absorbing silicone piece contours around the Bold beneath a second layer of hi-impact polycarbonate. Plus the optional self-adhesive screen protector rounds the full circle.
OtterBox has always made their cases fit like they were molded with the phone assembly to spec. Never a flaw in sight. And now that RIM has risen above previous smartphone releases, with the already dubbed best Bold ever they’ve given teams like Otter better hardware to work with.
With my 9930 being such a sleek and attractive device, I too have been less excited about covering it up. But the fear of a fumble or ding has overtaken that lack of enthusiasm. And OtterBox is one of my top go-to technology specialists.
This case feels spectacular on! It’s a far cry from the feel of the previous years Commuter cases on those smaller bulkier Bolds. Don’t misunderstand however, I loved those cases too. But the technology advanced Bold 9900-9930 makes for a much sleeker case. My BlackBerry slides in and out of my front pocket fairly easily in this case with the plus side being that it is protected!
Day one with the new Commuter Series Case on and my Bold 9930 saw it’s first hard drop. Luckily the screen was facing up and the drop was approximately 3 feet onto a hard linoleum floor. I cringed! But was lucky to find no physical damage and after a week my Berry still runs like a dream machine.
Once again, another big win from OtterBox. I love it. Better than the previous Commuter Cases for Bold devices. A very reasonable $34.95. I highly recommend buying one if this is the type of protection your looking for. Head over to http://www.otterbox.com/ or the link below to grab yourself one today!
