We first showed you the Dicota line back in January at CES and not too long ago I reviewed the Flexi Case for the BlackBerry Bold 9900/30. Now I'm here to give you a preview of another case from the Dicota Built for Blackberry line: the Hard Cover case for the 9900/30.With this case you get protection for the sides and back of your device without a lot of bulk and just a touch of color.

The Review

The simple and sleek styling of this case is a refreshing change. The case is made of an impact resistant hard plastic with a criss cross pattern to add just a touch of class to your device. The Dicota Hard Shell Cover has such a tight fit that it adds essentially no extra bulk to the device. That being said, you may have to pry the case off for a bit until it loosens up (mine took about a week of constant on/off to loosen it).

Back side of caseEach color (purple, blue and black) have a different crisscross pattern on the back. The cutouts for the camera and flash are nice and wide and allow for a solid connection.
Side buttonsThe right side of the case leaves the buttons exposed for ease of access.
Side portsThe left side cutouts are wide and access to your 3.5 headset jack and microUSB port is easy.
Top buttonThe top button is left uncovered which can make it very easy to accidentally unlock your device.
BottomThe bottom charging ports are covered so you will have to remove it if you use a charging cradle.

Flexi Case for BlackBerry Bold 9900 / 9930
by Dicota

The Good

Very reasonable price. Simple and sleek design with a simple pattern on the back.

The Bad

Color choices are slim: Black, Blue & Purple. The fit is so snug that you have to literally pry it off until it loosens a bit.

Conclusion

Perfect case if you want a simple yet stylish cover for your device. Once it loosened up, I had no issue taking the case off when I needed to charge it on the cradle.
