BlackBerry Leap Review
Devices | 300 Comments BlackBerry Leap Review! Although it feels like only last week I was writing a post announcing the device, in reality it wasn't. It was well over a month ago now at Mobile World Congress but, thanks to a quick turnaround time from announcement to delivery, here we are taking a look at the latest all-touch BlackBerry 10...

Jun 24, 2015 The BlackBerry OEM Leather Pouch is a professional way to carry around your BlackBerry Leap
42 Comments
Peek

The BlackBerry OEM Leather Pouch is available to buy for BlackBerry 10 smartphones, the BlackBerry Leap version is no exception. I got my hands on one and took it for a spin for a while. One of the benefits of using the Leather Pouch is that your device is protect on the go but you can still use it in its naked form. Continue reading to see what I think of the BlackBerry Leap Leather Pouch.

The BlackBerry OEM Leather Pouch for the BlackBerry Leap is no different in design to other leather pouches available. You have the signature red thread on the right side, BlackBerry logo on the front and BlackBerry embossed name on the back. What is different on the Leap version compared to the BlackBerry Z30 version or even the Classic version is the way the pieces are sewn together. I'm no seamstress and don't know technical term for it but I the Leap version has an edge to it. See photo(s). It is also a lot lighter that other leather pouches and feels a bit more flimsy, for lack of a better word. I say flimsy because when there is no device inserted, you can squeeze at the sides and it bends easily, with other OEM leather pouches, you can't do this due to there being some sort of padding inside them. It is also due to the fact that there is no sleep magnet to be found either. Which is a first for BlackBerry OEM leather pouches, though it is because the BlackBerry Leap itself has no sleep sensor to begin with. Therefore there is no point in the case having a sleep magnet.

As usual the front piece of the pouch does not cover the device up to the top so you can see the LED notification at a glance. The sides are also free for you to be able to take your device out. You can slip the Leap in and out very easily and it can go in both ways too -- front facing or back facing. Though you'd probably want to insert it front facing so you can see the LED notification.

BlackBerry OEM Leather Pouch has always been a nice way to carry around your BlackBerry device and you can go wrong with using one. They're elegant and professional looking.

You can buy a BlackBerry OEM Leather Pouch for the BlackBerry Leap from Shop CrackBerry for $29.99 - currently on sale.

Canadian carriers preparing for the launch of the BlackBerry Leap

While BlackBerry has been rapidly rolling the all-new BlackBerry Leap out to new areas, one country interestingly left off of the list, which thus far contains France, Germany, Malaysia, US, and UK is Canada. Since the BlackBerry Leap availability started being announced, Canada has taken a 'coming soon' position leaving many folks wondering what the hold up is. That said, it's starting to look as though it won't be that much longer at all for Canadians who want to get their hands on one for a number of reasons.
