With any new smartphone comes a host of accessories and the BlackBerry Z10 is no different. BlackBerry is aunching a selection of OEM accessories for the new flagship handset and the one that really caught my eye was the Transform Hard Shell. The shell offers protection to the rear of the device as any other shell would but due to the depth of it at the four corners of the Z10, it also will protect your screen if the BlackBerry is placed face down. In addition, I believe that a couple of screen protectors will be supplied with the shell so you really will have peace of mind that you are doing everything possible to stop your beautiful new BlackBerry getting any bumps or scrapes.

Where the Transform Hard Shell case part comes in is that the shell has a foldable seam running down the centre of its rear. This allows it to be bent almost in half, allowing you to use the shell as a kick stand - perfect for watching a movie or TV program.

We will of course have a full review of the Transform Shell in due course, but in the meantime check out the case options we already have in ShopCrackBerry and keep your eyes peeled for more soon.
