    Default CASE: Case-Mate Barely There for BlackBerry Z10?

    Hi Team CrackBerry,

    First off, thanks for the reply Kevin, on this post: How to unlock your BlackBerry Z10 from Canadian carriers! | CrackBerry.com
    On that video, I saw a case that was not shown on CrackBerry before, and thus inquired about it.

    Now knowing that it is a Case-Mate Barely There White for the Z10, I was wondering if you guys were going to hold some in your shop?
    I'd rather spend some money here on CrackBerry rather than elsewhere if it's priced the same :P.

    For more info, here's from the Manufacturer: Case-Mate BlackBerry Z10 Barely There Cases (Case-Mate BBZ10-BT), BlackBerry Z10 Cases | Covers | Accessories | Case-Mate !

    For a simplistic looking device like the Z10, a simple case like this would look great on it.. Though a transform flip case is tempting as well...!

    I picked up a black Case-Mate Barely There for my black Z10 when I got the phone. The Rogers store had it for sale. It is a great case. Not too big, covers everything nicely and gives plenty of access to the buttons and inputs.

    Haha Kevin! Just cause you said that, I'll most likely get another case when the selection is larger :P And yes I do agree with shabbs, that brushed aluminium one looks great.

    I'm sure it will. I would imagine that would have to be one of the "specs" for a case to allow NFC.

    That's the case I have now. I got mine at a Rogers store when I got my Z10. Maybe check one out?

    My Silver Brushed FX Aluminum Barely There Case arrived yesterday. Solid case, offers great protection but quite slippery with the brushed finish. Will be good to take on trips. It took me a while to figure out how to get it on and off. Did not realize it was a two-piece case. Was worried I was going to bend it. For every day use, the Case-Mate Barely There in Black is the one for me. Not too big, and just the right amount of protection.

    Hello,

    What is the thickness measurement of the case-mate barely there? I can't seem to find it on the web.
    I have .3mm on my ip5 and i'm quite happy with it, I dropped my ip5 several times and the it protected my phone.

    I hope they made one for Z10

    Hate to say it but nearly impossible to find any cases around here. . . . even WalMart doesnt have carry Z10 cases !!!!
    I've made TWO orders on CrackBerry and had to cancel them because one or more cases were either back ordered or "pre" ordered. Sorry but I am NOT impressed. Heck CB site only shows 3 screen covers and only 1 is available (the other 2 are preorders) This is sub par. I'd like to support CB but so frustrated about this issue. If I could find a case I like locally (I checked,Walmart, TheSource, BestBuy, Futureshop, Telus Store, Rogers Store, Bell store, random mall kiosk ) I would pick one up but no one carries any stock of cases (The Source HAD 2 when phone released and hasnt replenished since. FS/BB also have not replenished thier stock of cases.) Seems the phones are selling great but no one gives a @$^$ about the accessories.

    Hey CDM76 where are you located? Are you using the canadian CrackBerry shop or the US one? From what I know there's definitely more than three choices on the Canadian shop. Also Kevin as repeatedly saying that their team's been working lots to get most accessories and also getting current ones back in stock (whether it's cases, battery charger bundle, etc etc.) I've been seeing lots of cases in stock but just waiting for more selections.As for the US store, more will be available at their launch in March as right now I believe it's only in the pre ordering status.

    looks slick, let us know if it works with NFC, the product info says 2 piece, wonder if it replaces the stock back cover?
