Protective cases for mobile devices usually are made out of leather, metal or silicone – with an oddball sleeve(darn cool) or two thrown in for kicks. Boxwave’s latest creation is completely different. It essentially consists of a slim PVC shell that goes right around the Treo…and changes its color in the process.
This time, Boxwave shipped the case in a cardboard box – in the past, products arrived in envelopes(unharmed). Anyways, no transport damages…no issues here(except that some postal services do not deliver parcels to a mail box and send a postman instead, which usually comes when you aren’t at home…).
Boxwave used a special type of rubber that stays ‘grippy’ even if your hands are wet – preventing accidental drops…
In the end, the Slim Rubberized Shell Case is a lovely way to change the color of your Treo and make it easier to grasp without getting in your way otherwise. It’s protective effect is negligible, people who reset their Treo often will dislike the complicated removal process. If you can live with the weaknesses above, get this case for a reasonable 28$ from boxwave.com(available in black, green and silver).
