Check out the new iSkin Aura case, and enter to win your very own!

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.

iSkin Aura front view

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.

Of course, I want to share my love of this case with one of our lucky readers. If you have a Bold 9900/30 and want to enter to win your choice of white or black/silver iSkin Aura case, courtesy of CrackBerry, drop a comment below letting me know which color you think is hotter. The contest ends Sunday at midnight PST. One entry per person, please. Good luck!

jordan559

The black and silver case looks gr8. I hope I win a free one. Thanks for the chance.

razb3rry

The black/silver is definitely hotter. Compliments the 9900/9930 very well!

stirling11

Black and silver...such a great combination...Would look stunning on my 9900 :)

Davidso

Can you charge the phone on the desktop charger (charging pod) without taking the skin off?

derrickinms

Makes the phone look like and A-wesome radar detector! Thanks yall for the chance to win one :D

olblueyez

Or just buy the "vibes" first because you will wish you had when you put a ding in your bezel and you can't reach your convenience buttons. I put a vibes on my 9900 today and it protects the top of the phone like a Commuter but its light weight and doesn't add too much bulk like the BlackBerry skins.

rexxenex

nice! def would be good on my bold 9900

Allamricn

BTW, none of your CrackBerry store links work for Canadians. They just open the Canadian storefront, not the linked item.

Here is the URL on the Canadian site.

As my BB9900 is black faceplate and keys then black and silver would be the best combo :)

pvpjohn

Good luck everyone! I actually asked my wife to get me the Black and Silver case for my 3 day old 9900, as a gift for my birthday which is today, November 18th! Sadly that didn't happen, so it would be wonderful if I got "another" gift today, wink, wink, hint, hint!

mervons4

jaysnavarro

I hope to win the black iskin case! Great review btw!

ignites

dainteg

kevin.sunley

Thanks CB! Definitely Black.

GourmetPens

I love iSkins... they make my favorite cases! Black & Silver for sure!

jsciiijd

My 9930 arrives by UPS this afternoon.

Wish somebody would make a charging stand that worked with a case.

But the Bold deserves the best care, so it needs a case.

If you had a white 9930, you would want a white case, but for a black Bold, Michelle, how could you consider anything other than black?

paulbadassbriant

Black and Silver for 9900 is the best

fire6

Black and silver look great.

dougtreasa

I'll let ACDC sing my Aura praises: Back in Black!!

bcbbanga4l

I was looking at this one i liked it was wondering if it fit in normal holster. I think white one looks awesome but cant go wrong with black.

BaconMunch

Black is the way to get, I'd love to win one for my 9900. Thanks CrackBerry!

johnnicek

iSkin Aura looks really sexy, need one for myself

slagman5

I already have a hardshell case for my Bold 9900. Just want to say that I'm not too pleased with them covering the "Bold" on the back of the phone, nor am I a fan of products that put an "i" in front of the name to sound cool. That's Apple's stupid gimmick, I don't want that on my Blackberry...

ekafara

Black and silver please!

MousePad

White for me... Just to try something new... :)

hunkytoe

I would love to win this to protect the rest :)

Beautiful case! Thanks Crackberry. Keep up the great work. Yes, i can picture a black and silver on my phone!

Jarhead 66

Great looking case : would love to have one for my 9930 in blk/gray. My 9930 is great, can't keep my hands off of it. The wife has the 9330 , she loves it. We both switched from the 8350I.

The Black & Silver are sleek and still professional. I like the white, but just wouldn't want it to look 'dirty' white. Hope I win one for my new BB Bold 9900. shellysells.com

howl078

Sexyback for my 9900

Wormb35

Man I just got tired of my Defender case. Right now I am just enjoying the feel of the phone itself. I am very intrigued by this case though. Looks like it keeps the nice form of the phone itself, plus gives a little protection. I want one!!

w0qj

Black/Silver is the way to go!!

By the way, hope that it includes a transparent plastic adhesive to protect the back of the iSkin metal cover (the part that covers the back of the Bold 9900), otherwise the iSkin itself would be scratched!

Imagine, a protector for iSkin protector itself!

waiting4rim2catchup

Black/Silver for my 9930 please!

White is nice, but black is better! I love the silver back on the black case. Plus the black looks more original on the 9930. Give it to me.

Time to have some fun! Please take this in the spirit that its meant. :D

I'm sure you've all heard the saying 'Once you've had black you'll never turn back' or how about 'The blacker the Berry the sweeter the juice' (How apt... I love that one!) Lol!

Black all the way! Though the Black & Silver one is pretty cool! Either way I want... No I need!......

Black is the way to go to keep the 9930 really sharp especially in it's coming from Crackberry!!
Thank You Crackberry!!!!

JGUZEK

I've always been a blackberry pocket puch user, but that iskin case certainly has style. I may need to make the switch. My new 9900 arrives on Monday. Can't wait.

guerllamo7

Black and silver looks awesome. I typically don't like cases but this one is nice.

mykidsmom1964

Its a shame to cover such a beautifully designed phone. This cover seems to compliment the design. I love it. Black is so tasteful. Have a great day C'berry Nation.

Brian Scasta

Black is definitely the way to go.
