    I was just in the VZW Experience Store with a friend who was exchanging her Storm for a new one. Never heard of anyone doing this before...

    But as I was browsing around at the Storm/Blackberry accessories noticed a new silicone case. It's all black on the back it an imprint of a tire. I usually don't like silicone cases, but this was a must have for me. If anything it's a conversation starter...

    It doesn't however cover the keys like the "floral" print case discussed in previous threads.

    I've posted a pic....

    Don't know if they will be everywhere yet, they literally just came out in the past couple of days. But who knows...

    I love the silicon cases but it such a pain if you put your storm in your pocket. I have the blackberry silicone case but never use it.

    Can you show a pic of it on the phone? Unless of course your phone is your camera, then I recant.

    Only thing better then this would be a super thin REAL carbon fiber hard case. Now that would be something a girl could love.

    The "tread" doesn't go all the way to the top where the lock & mute keys are. It's just smooth like on the front. And you don't have to press hard to lock it. It's easier than I than I thought it would be.

    Nice. I have a blackberry silicone case, which is alright. This however, seems to do a better job.

    Wow that looks cool as a huge car guy myself. I might get one just to have an extra case.

    I will admit however that the silicone cases are obnoxiously sticky sometimes.

    Is the fit really snug? I have the silicone case from Verizon and while it does technically fit the device, its still kinda 'loose' on the sides of the screen. How tightly does it fit?

    It's more snug than the other VZW cases, but it's not air tight. I guess they do that so you can get it on and off with easy

    BTW nice Avatar...

    serious or not (I can't tell), I could go for that as well...I know a guy who works with C/F - I should give him a call and maybe cash in one of my favors.

    Carbon fiber cases for the Storm are already available. Check ebay.

    are you serious? that crap is NOT real carbon fiber...which would go for no less than $30-50 to account for materials and labor cost.

    I have the other floral case and I wish my top came down like this one does, however one of the things I like best is that it covers the keys. I keep reading about buttons coming off and I figure it's good insurance against that plus I like the feel of it. all the buttons are surprisingly easy to push with the case on.
