MORE INFORMATION

Fommy Product Review:

Overview: RIM has been producing BlackBerry devices for 10 years now, and while many variations have come and gone, all the way from the humble pager to the now common and ever growing smartphone platform, they have always needed protection and RIM frequently is the one who provides it, whether it comes bundled or sold separately. While the popularity of leather cases has weaned a bit since the BlackBerry’s conception, Skin cases are still booming and provide excellent protection without much bulk or cost.

Durability: The silicone of this BlackBerry Niagra 9630/ Tour 9630 skin case quite thin and lightweight, but this has one small drawback: it’s fairly stretchy. It’s quite elastic and easy to stretch and could lead to tearing if pulled on hard enough, but you would have to stretch it over half it’s size again before it begins to suffer significant straining. Even so, it snaps back very nicely to it’s original shape even after significant stretches. And in addition the flexibility helps dissipate damage to the skin, preventing scrapes and cuts that may render if unsightly and eventually unusable. It showed no sign of damage after scratching it with my fingernails, rubbing keys across it, and even after running a pair of sharp scissors lightly across the surface.

Design/Functionality: This silicone skin is actually rather slippery, but it has an odd helper, the logo. Typically logos are just for show, but the carved in logo actually helps to give a better grip on the case/phone as well as giving it a very official look to your BlackBerry Niagra 9630/ Tour 9630.

It’s extremely well molded to the BlackBerry Niagra 9630/ Tour 9630’s design, especially around the face of the BlackBerry Niagra 9630/ Tour 9630. But the design could use a bit more work. Even though the silicone case is very thin, it still makes it so you have to push on the buttons from directly above them; which can make it difficult if you’re used to rubbing your finger down the side. But unlike many silicone cases for the BlackBerry, the bottom of the keyboard is still easily accessible and not any more difficult than usual.

Of course, being a case it is designed for protection as well. In addition to being quite durable by itself, the case is a very nice shock absorber. The flexible design helps to dissipate damage across the surface of the material, preventing harmful cracks to your BlackBerry Niagra 9630/ Tour 9630. The whole face of the BlackBerry Niagra 9630/ Tour 9630 is pretty exposed though, so a screen protector would be a good idea if you plan on throwing it in your pocket.

Conclusion: If you’re looking for an official BlackBerry case that is almost perfectly molded for your BlackBerry Niagra 9630/ Tour 9630, this is a great choice. Usability for some of the side buttons could be improved though.
