    I am interested in hearing from anyone that has an otterbox for the BB. Especially those with a tour or something very similar.

    BlackBerry Tour // OtterBox.com

    There are two choices on the link above. Any constructive comments regarding which one to choose (pros\cons) would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    If you search for otterbox you will find a number of threads.

    I've got what I will call the original for the 8830. It is an armored tank. It does appreciably increase the size/bulk of the unit. It protects the keyboard and remainder with a clear membrane embossed with the key pattern so it does not really interfere with typing. It makes it very dust proof and adds to its water resistance - it is NOT waterproof.

    I don't know about the new solely rubber shell - obviously less protective.

    F2 covered the Defender series, which I love and have had for every Berry I've owned so I'll cover the Impact: its a skin. Really that's about it. It has a honeycomb like construction for the corners which is nice but really, its a thicker than normal skin.

    Good replies. Much appreciated.

    I am wondering if the BB-Curve Otterboxes will fit the Tour. Maybe the question that should be asked is: Are the dimensions of the BB-Curve the same as the Tour? Anyone that has used a Curve case for Tour, your comments \ lessons learned would be appreciated.

    Not sure if F2 has tried using a Tour inside his 8830 case.

    I think I'll try the new impact for my Tour.

    No. OtterBox's are made for specific devices.

    Anyone venture a guess as to whether or not the Tour with an Impact skin will still fit in the VZW provided holster case?

    I would guess, no. Unless you get a bigger holster. As an example: 8900 (smaller than 9630) with normal, non-OtterBox sized skin, fits perfectly in my 9000 (larger than 9630) OEM holster
