A case is a case is a case, right? Well... A case for your smartphone should do at least two things. One, protect your BlackBerry in some way. Whether that's simply protecting it from dings and scratches or full-on drop-it-from-ten-feet-and-be-unharmed protection, a case should do its job. Just as importantly, you should still be able to use your BlackBerry once it's in the case. Quality cases do just that.

The Ultra Light Feather Case is one such product. The case comes with a cleaning cloth and screen protector. Like most cases, this one doesn't cover the screen; so that thin and replaceable piece of plastic guards your screen from dust and light scratches. The case itself is obviously very light and is made of a rigid plastic that tightly hugs the phone. Convenience, mute, lock, and volume keys as well as the charging and headphone ports are all accessed through cutouts in the case.

Since I was borrowing my sister's Curve 8900, I had to get the one in pink (they call it Magenta); but the Ultra Light Feather Case comes in a variety of colors for a large number of devices. Though it won't save your BlackBerry from a ten-foot fall, it will protect against the incidental dings and scratches of everyday use. And with several colors to choose from for many BlackBerry devices, you too can add a bit of "fashion flair" to your device.
