    Defender Series BlackBerry Z10 cases | OtterBox

    While I'm glad to see them on board and that they're available day 1, I'm really hoping this is quickly followed up by a Commuter Case (And maybe some other premium case makers like Element). I haven't dressed my Blackberry up like a tank since my 9700. I like the commuter on my 9900, it's decent protection without making my phone look like a brick.

    While I'm at it, here's hoping there will be a red Z10 in the near future too (Fingers crossed).

    Does anyone know a) does the Z10 support the in-case standby mode like a 9900 in an original BlackBerry holster, and b) does the OtterBox activate or support his feature?

    Awesome, and a snap in belt clip holster too. I want it. I'll wear it around in the states and just tell everyone I left my Z10 in the pickup. They'll be so jealous.

    I just bought one.

    Got this strange message before ordering though. Sold out already? Now wouldn't that send a message to the US carriers.

    Nope. Read what it says. A system upgrade is taking place and they are not processing orders until Feb 9th. So your order will be processed next weekend and because of the delay, they are offering a free Pursuit.

    But a sellout to US users would send a clear message to the carriers. I ordered 2 today myself. Got the wife sold on a Z10 so there will be 2 sold to this household when released.

    This is true. I've got the feeling I'll be using a screen protector and a holster case.

    Luckily we women carry purses which hide a multitude of sins....

    And I'm not exactly concerned about being "in."

    I was thinking the same thing. the phone looks very similar to an iphone covered in that case by the way.

    Since I'm such a nice guy, if any of you get a Z10 before I do, send it to me and I'll test out the otter box for you.

    Not sure how this case will work, the dev alpha B had a casing around it and that caused problems with gestures, this case doesn't appear to have any room on the sides at all...

    Guess I'm going naked lol

    Yeah I agree with the concernes about the swiping up gesture but also I'd like to see some cases have a cutout for the bb logo on the back like they do to ipoop phones. I wanna show hey I got a new blackberry and I love it.

    I always wonder what people are doing with their phones that they need these defender cases. I have literally climbed a small MOUNTAIN with my bold in a regular shell case. On the other hand many keep their phone naked and question why I even use a shell case. Each their own!!

    I like my testing plan better.

    It's plastic. Make your own cut out. A hole saw should work fine. Just watch that you don't run it too hot to melt the plastic.

    Let me count the ways:

    1. Hunting
    2. Fishing
    3. 4-wheeling
    4. Crashing and wrenching on 4-wheelers
    5. Industrial chemicals
    6. 3 sons

    This case reminds me of their 1st generation of Defender case for iPhone 4. I think Otterbox refined the design later (to greet 4S?) and I am sure they can make this Z10 case better-looking to more peoples going forward if Z10 keep selling like hotcakes.

    I long for the commuter case though.

    The defender cases are great if you work in an industrial type job setting. If your in construction, work in power plants, etc.
