If you've seen any of my previous case reviews, you know I'm not generally a big fan of having a case on my BlackBerry. When I got my BlackBerry Bold 9900, I knew I was going to need something to keep it looking nice, but I didn't really want to get a case because the phone is too pretty to cover up. But soon the battery door, being plastic, was getting scuffed up from day-to-day use, and I decided it was time.
I had an iSkin case for my Bold 9700 that I liked, so I checked out their line of cases and found a new one for the Bold 9900/30 that looked awesome, the iSkin Aura. It's a really low profile shell case that protects the back and sides of the BlackBerry, while leaving open access to all the ports and buttons. There are cutouts in the back of the case as well, for the camera, flash, and rear microphone.
I love that the Aura doesn't get in the way of using your BlackBerry. It's designed with a modern look that compliments the style of the Bold perfectly. I ended up with the black/silver combo and from the moment I snapped it on, I haven't wanted to take it off. It's so sleek, and feels really natural. The only thing that has annoyed me about the case is the bottom edge. It's a bit sharp on mine, but not anything a bit of sandpaper couldn't smooth out.
What I like about iSkin, is they send some extras with their cases. Included in the package is an antistatic wipe to clean your device as well as a screen protector and some iSkin stickers. You can get an iSkin Aura case for your BlackBerry Bold 9900/30 in either black/silver or all white from the CrackBerry store at the link below.
