    So here are some shots of the Otterbox Impact case on my 9700.

    It's really just a glorified skin with slightly more protection than an aftermarket skin. It's a tad bit thicker with raised edges on the sides.

    Nice pix! Looks like I might have to look into one of these even tho I'm not big on making the phone look much larger than it actually is..

    Thanks Clint. I just checked and it even fits the holster I have been using. It's a good case. Better protection that OEM skins but not the bulk of the Defender series.

    It has a good grip but might be slightly 'slippery' to some as the rubber does not have that tight feel to it in the hand. It'll do just fine for me as I keep it in the holster most of the time anyway and use bluetooth to do my calling.

    Does it slide out of a pocket without pulling the pocket inside out?

    I like this case/skin, I just wish they made a color other than black.

    Wow for those photos! Thanks for sharing. I might going to try this one out. I was debating between commuter and this case, but commuter won. Unfortunately, I still do not like the slippery feel of back plastic case. I know that you mentioned this case feels a little slippery. I can't see how it would be as slippery as plastic material if the silicon on this case is the same as the one they use to make silicon part of commuter.

    Cheers

    3C great detailed pics and write up (just ordered one) - Care to share secrets on taking such sharp, clear digital pics for posting on the internet?

    I use a Canon Powershot SX200 IS, set to manual control with super macro mode and adequate lighting. The camera is a 12.1 MP with huge 12x optical zoom and shoots 720P video. And the camera is a compact. It takes great pictures. The pictures I have posted here and throughout CB have been greatly downsized as the original images are about 7 to 8MB each and the resolution is 4,000 x 3,000 pixels. Crackberry limits the max size of images to 2500 x 2500. I used Photoshop CS3 to resize for an example.

    Hello,
    I was reading a review that said the OTTERBOX Impact case collected a lot of lint and dust when taking it out of your pocket and the screen protector was to small. Is this true?? Thanks in advance.

    Actually the screen protector is a perfect fit. As with ANY RUBBER SKIN or CASE, it will collect a certain amount of lint [it's rubber after all!!].
