Hands-on with the BlackBerry Z30 Leather Flip Case
We have taken a look at a couple of BlackBerry Z30 accessories already. Getting a first look at the Leather Holster case and the Transform Shell case. Now, we've got our hands on the Leather Flip case - a premium accessory for a premium device. This may just be the case that shall be protecting my Z30.
It is a shame the Z10 didn't get an official leather flip case. The BlackBerry Q10 got one and we went hands-on with that, if you haven't already checked that out.
Similar to the Q10 version, there is a little window for the LED notifications, something amiss from the Z10 flip case. This comes in very handy indeed. On the flip cover it has cut outs for the earpiece and mic, so you could essentially talk on the phone with the flip cover closed. On the front you also have the BlackBerry logo and name embossed much like all official BlackBerry cases. On the back, you have the BlackBerry logo, again like many of the OEM cases from BlackBerry, and of course you have the cut out for the camera.
Where the Z30 flip case differs from it's Z10 and Q10 counterparts is that it doesn't over the back of the device. It actually replaces the back cover of the Z30. Many people questioned the point of the Z30 having a removable back. Some quite correctly suggested that it would probably be for a flip-style case. They were right.
You can check out the video above for a quick preview of the case. We'll have a full review out soon, once it has been put through its paces.
