    Has anyone found any of the "skin" cases for the 8130. I didn't realize that the camera location on the 8100 is different than that of the 8130.

    Any one know of a location for me to buy a skin?? I don't want to get my Pearl scratched up!

    Thanks.

    I got mine when I ordered my phone from verizon. the have black, silver, and pink(?) i think..

    I got the black one. Its really sweet and WILL save me a lot of damage. they actually make cases designed to work with "skinned" berries...
    I have one made by seidio that is awesome.
    I also use a peel and stick screen protector made by fellowes...

    good luck...

    I got the pink skin at a vzw store in ga for 9.99. They didn't have a nice variety thouh. I love the skin. Not sure if I need a case too. The one that came with the pearl2 is hideous. I bought a black leather vzw case too, but I don't like it. I need some new skins. Btw has anybody heard anything about the color trackball apps for the pearl2?

    i would bet that when at&t and t-mbile and or sprint get the pearl2 (with the camera position changed... there will be a variety of colors available... you may have to go to t-mobile for instance to buy the color skin you want but as long as they are 8120 or 8130 pearls it should fit the same...

    Invisible Shield released a full skin and a screen protector for the 8130 late last night. I ordered the full skin this am.

    RatZack,

    Just looked up Invisible Shield and read up on it. Looks like the best alternative albeit a bit pricey. But I guess when you consider it's the only case, cover, skin you'll need it really is a bargin. I think I will order the full skin too. Different colors isn't my bag so a clear would be fine.

    thanks for the information.

    Mike, I just looked at my confirmation email from them and the order was $5 less then advertised (19.96 not $24.95) . Shows how much I paid attention when I was clicking through the order process. I also chose the free shipping.

    blackberry source dot com has all sorts of colors for the new pearl 8130....

    i got orange and blue coming in the mail...

    -db

    also...does anyone know if the 8100 is smaller than the 8130? I bought a leather sena case for the 8100 and it seems really tight on my 8130... i thought they were the same size...perhaps it just needs broken in?

    Daddybear,

    my wife has the 8100 and it is the same size but a tad thinner than the 8130 and surprisingly the 8100 is lighter than the 8130.

    I emailed KevinM about CB possibly creating a hard case. Maybe if we ask Kevin real nice we could possible have them before christmas...Longshot, but hey anything can happen for christmas.... Would any of you buy a hard case for your BB that has our CB logo?

    Anyway on the 8130 I would LOVE to have a case for my 8130. So when some come available send me a memo!

    Thank,

    Bad news for anyone that likes the Sena Cases as I do. I ordered a couple magnetic flippler cases from Sena for my new 8130from Verizon. The camera is obstructed by the case and I will have to return the cases. I just got off the phone with Michelle from customer service at Sena Cases and she told me Sena will not be making a case for this phone. That is very disappointing to me since the professional look of their cases appeal to me.

    Maybe if others ask Sena about this, they will see there is a large interest for cases and they will reconsider.
