OtterBox always has 3 amazing & unique cases for the BlackBerry Bold each year. While most previous years have seen little change in the design, this year RIM made such a beautiful device so it seems OtterBox took advantage by making big changes from all their protective cases.
At just $19.95, this is one of the best prices you can pay for high quality protection and the case isn’t just great looking, the big benefits are protective, easy to install & remove, plus the case feels luxurious in your hands with the wider Bold keyboard.
I’ve been using the Impact case for a couple weeks now and it’s easily one of my favorite cases out of the pile. In the past I always found the Impact to be nice because you could always throw it over your Bold and run out the door for fast protection without having to over-think it. Now that the case is so much more attractive with my 9930, I’m using it a lot more.
The case has saved my Bold a few times now. The biggest was a 4 foot drop onto a hard floor. Luckily the phone landed on the backside took a little bounce and was without damage. No niks, scratches or dings.
Inside the box -
- Impact absorbing silicone
- Texturized for grip
- Self adhesive screen protector
BlackBerry Bold 9900

Inner coring for added protection
Self-adhering clear protective film included
Access to all buttons and features
Self-adhering clear screen protector

Case provides added protection against minor bumps. Case is NOT protective against water.
It’s difficult to find any complaints about this case, but of course there’s always something you’ll notice after a couple weeks. Regardless I’m quite fond of the Impact this round for the Bold. Also note that all ports, plugs, buttons, mic and speaker are all easily accessible. Check out http://www.otterbox.com for more products like this.
