Personal Review of the Case-Mate Barely there case for the S2
First off THUMBS WAY UP to Case-Mate. This is hands down one of the best i have ever had for any of my BlackBerry phones. I know a few reviews have been made but im just throwing out my 2 cents..
I originally had a silicon cover which did a few things i liked and many i didn't. I liked how it protected basically everything except the screen . I hated the extra weight added to the phone and the fact that putting it in my pocket was a pain.
The Barely there case solves both my problems while offering great protection for the phone with a rubber tone finish. The red (which i got) seems to fit the phone's style and "sleek-ness" The access to the buttons is nice and the fact that the top and bottom of the phone are open which is nice.
The one thing which i am not crazy about but i will get used to is that there is a little play in the case, but whatever i'm liking it to much to let that effect me.
I'll recommend this case to any BB user, and at 16.99 at Verizon (i got it cheaper through a work accessories discount woot-woot!!) it is definitely worth it even for the tour and new curve.
If you have this case feel free to post your opinions

He got the UNBRANDED version at Verizon. The official Case Mate version does not come in red. But no one listens to me...why would they.Follow a REAL repo man on Twitter! http://www.twitter.com/TheRepoMan
I'll try and get a few pics up later after work, probably aroudn 6 or 7 EST. If i forget, just keep telling me lol
I already convinced a few S2 users as well as Tour users at my job to get them, they are going to order them this week.

Not to detract from the Case-Mate case, but I had the same type of case soon after I got my S1 in late Nov '08.
I am surprised that this is so "newsy". Its a great type of case for people generally take good care in handling their phone, but want some moderate protection without the bulk. If you are that person.... I recommend it!
