Review: Case-Mate POP! Case for BlackBerry Bold 9930 and Bold 9900

By Adam Zeis on 27 Oct 2011 12:14 pm EDT

The Case-Mate POP! case for the BlackBerry Bold 9930 and 9900 has quickly won me over as an awesome accessory for day to day use. It has a really great feel to it and offers some good protection to keep your Bold 9930 or 9900 safe from the daily grind. With the POP! case on I wasn't worried about tossing my device on the table or afraid I'd drop it on the pavement getting out of my car. I feel that the POP! case will do a stellar job of protecting the device all around and it definitely makes a great alternative to other less impact-proof cases. Check out the video above for more.

Hola is pronounced oh-la, not challah :)


I use the Shell combo from VZW which I think is excellent.
One reviewer complains about holster scratching screen - have not encounter that as I also use screen protector. I just love the feel of the Shell case.


Adam finally got an HD camera!


Is anybody using the anti-glare screen protector? if yes how is it?


I wish their design cases that retain the 9900 thin-ness and not make it all bulky.

dude, where's my CONTEST?!?!!?!?


Very nice case. I like the grippiness on the sides as opposed to my slippery smooth otterbox commuter..


Does this case still allow you to use the included holster?


I've had the POP case for my PlayBook for a while and now a matching one for my 9930. This is my new favorite case. Just as good at protecting your device as an Otterbox and almost looks as good as my last favorite case OEM hard shell case. Thank goodness it doesn't have the kickstand like advertised, they should take that out of the description. That's the only reason I wasn't gonna buy it.


No, it's not like the Otterbox, it's EXACTLY like the Speck Candy Shell cases made for the iPhone. Thick rubber/silicone inside, hard shell outside. Raised rubber edge to protect screen.


does it fit in the holster that came with the device.?


does anyone know why there are three holes on the back?
