Case-Mate Smooth Case for BlackBerry Bold 9780 and Bold 9700

The Case-Mate Smooth Case for the BlackBerry Bold 9700 & 9780 is a plain and simple, get the job done kind of case. It features a 2-part snap-on design that gives you some extra beef and protection on your device. Just slide the device in, snap on the bottom and you're ready to roll. There are openings for all the ports and it adds some good feel to the device making it easy to hold on to. It will protect from some bumps and bruises, but the front of the device is still left open to the elements. Check out the quick video review above, then pick one up at

Case-Mate Smooth Case for BlackBerry Bold 9780 and Bold 9700


it sucks that no one leaves the charging contacts open, like Seidio does...granted they sell their own desktop charger. But I feel like other cases would fit in if they would only leave the bottom corners open!

I don't think it would matter if they left the charging points open, as the phone with the case on wouldn't fit into the charging pod anyway?

The case looks like it offers a great deal of protection, but for me, these cases don't work because of the charging pod issues.
