    My 8300 is due to arrive on Monday, and I'd like to get a case. Does anyone have a list of what's available?

    I would stick wiht an OEM case if you are looking for a belt clip / leather. They are made to fit perfectly and put the device in a sleep like mode. Otherwise, the ruberized "case" / skins are cool too. I have been looking, but these are the only ones I have found that are really cool. ANy other suggestions would be cool.

    I didn't receive a case with the U.S. AT & T version - nothing!! Anyone else?

    I did not receive a case either. tmag2005 wrote a review that highlighted the case and was disappointed that at&t did not provide one. However I believe that the US version of the 8800 shipped with a case, while other versions did not.

    I asked an at&t rep why the did not include a case with the 8300. He basically stated that at&t put pressure on the device manufacturers to stop including cases because it was costing at&t accessory sales.

    I don't know that his response is totally accurate, but it may have a ring of truth to it.

    Good point but yes, not all that fair to us. Thank you for the clarification though.

    The case that came with the 8800 was very nice. I went and bought the same case for my 8700c after I returned the 8800. Now I will be looking for the right case or skin for the 8300.

    Shipping isn't cheap, but Blackberry has all of the accessories available, including cases.

    BlackBerry Accessories Store - BlackBerry 8300

    Orders over $50 on Blackberry's website include free shipping via DHL.

    I am sort of upset that ATT didn't include any case at all with it.I alreay got some little thing inside the space between the outer ring og the trackball and the menu button part

    I can't decide if I want to go naked and not be anal with my BB being pristine or if I do want to be anal and buy a protective yet restrictive case. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for posting the accessory locations. I hadn't seen that one John - on my way over there now!

    P.S. I do think it's absurd there wasn't any kind of sleeve or case included with the 8300 in the U.S.

    eShop is great, and very trustworthy. I also really like the Seidio cases, and will get one from them as soon as they have one available, but I'm guessing that it will be at least a month before that can get one out to production since the model was just released.

    i agree, ebay (and amazon) have some good stuff, though you gotta be careful, some sellers sell spinoffs and low quality products.

    i'll just wait for the seidio "RUBBERIZED COMBO" for this model
    already emailed them for an ETA on this, hope they have an answer.

    It's been tough finding a case. I gave in and ordered a skin and the leather case from BB. I also like Seidio cases. Vaja and Sena cases are great if you don't mind spending the money. I didn't want to wait though - it's so exciting getting the new device and then you have to wait for accessories to follow

    MMB916, while the skin is on the device, can it still fit in the case, easily, or do you have to remove the skin?

    seidio guys replied to my email regarding curve cases
    this is what the guy said

    Thank you for your interest in our products. We are in the process to develop more product for the Blackberry curve, but at this time we do not have an ETA. The guesstimate time is weeks from now.

    Thank You for contacting Seidio
    so we just have to wait

    does it fit O.K ?? or does it "wabble" in the 8800's case?

    It's actually not too bad in the leather OEM case from the 8700 - I thought for sure it would be WAY too big - not bad as a temporary solution.
