BEST 700 WX CASE

Hi, I'm looking for a case for my 700 wx. Any recommendations along with pros and cons would be nice...so many come up with googling/reviews I'm lost.

Thanks for the help!

I've tried a bunch and I settled on this one:

http://www.senacases.com/Brands/PALM...TFLIPPER-CASES

Well built. No plastic cover over the keyboard which is a killer to work through. Flips down so I can use it mounted to my dashboard when I use it as speaker phone or GPS.

My opinion.

Depends on your preference.

The leather case protects the device well, from drops. I used to have the F7 Flip Case for the Treo 700...


Pros:
- Inexpensive
- Protected the device well
- Not as bulky as most other leather cases
- Has a slot for SD card and business card
- Removeable belt clip

Only Cons:
- A bit tricky to remove the case from the belt clip
- As you can see, the case has some stitching between the screen and keypad. Since it's a flip top, the device moves slightly upward when open, making it hard to press the left/right soft keys, and the top d-pad button, since that leather piece gets in the way.

I then tried the Cellet "Elite" RH7 Rubberized Holster...



The only major problem I had with it was that the little tab, easily got caught, causing the device to be released. If I had to run or move, I had to always put my hand on the phone to make sure nothing was caught or that it wasn't going to popout.


I now use the Seido rubberized skinned case, along with the Seido battery cover with reset hole...




Along with the Seido holster for the skinned case...



Pros:
- Not as bulky as a leather case
- Easy to insert/remove from the holster
- Spring clip keeps device securely in place. Unlike the Cellet "Elite" RH7 Rubberized Holster.

Con and Pro:
If device does get dropped, the case actually splits apart. This can easily be be put back together. At first thought, this wasn't a great case. But the splitting apart does help absorb the shock of being dropped.

2nd on the Palm Leather Horizontal holster.

Naked treo with BestSkinsEver.com Body skin, with screen protector.

No bulky cases when using the treo. Can't stand 'em.

I 2nd this case. The only problem I've just started having is that the part that flips up is starting to become detached/pulling apart. I contacted Sena and they said to send it back and as long as it doesn't look like abuse from me they will replace it for free. If it does look mangled by me, then they will replace it for $25. Not a bad deal really.

I use the JAVOShield Titanium case. I cut out the bottom keyboard cover to
give more access. It does a good job @ protecting, just a bit bulky. Also not as snug as I would like it to be.

I also have a cheapy clear hard plastic case I picked up from a local
store. This case is for when I'm not needing total protection, it basically
only protects from scratches.

PALM FLEXI CASE HANDS DOWN. It covers the whole device with high quality silicone and the keyboard is covered and which is a plus for protection, also the keys I feel click and feel even better when typing. I also comes with a hard plastic anti glare re usable screen protector. Finally, it is made by Palm for Palm 700w and wx. What else could go wrong, pricey but well worth it.
