    it looks like it has pretty much the exact same build as the RIM holster, without the clip and leather flap at the top. I absolutely love the holster, best on RIM's made yet. I am sure I am going to love this one too. I just hope it is snug, yet easy to remove (i had trouble with the leather pocket that came with the 9000).

    How is the holster-included-in-Canada being confirmed? This is the first I have heard about this...What would be the business rationale behind including it in Canada and not the USA??

    It hasn't been confirmed. It was mentioned on some Rogers promo video, but that's all. Hardly a confirmation.
    I do hope it's true though!

    Can anyone remember an instance where the US market didn't get a pouch or holster in the box and the Canadian market did?

    I've had my order in and have been waiting on them to get it in and ship it. They've now updated their website and say it should arrive/be available on Sept. 29.

    Meanwhile, the holster I ordered from them for $19.99 and free shipping arrived Monday. I much prefer the older style holsters. The leather is skimpy thin and the top strap is very narrow. It's not as easy to flip the top strap and remove the device, or to put the device back in as it is with the older style holster. That is to say, there seems to be more of a potential for dropping the phone when sliding it back in because of the thinness of the leather and resulting lack of sureness.

    Also, the leather smells kind of funky, as is often the case with overly processed inexpensive leather.

    Oddly enough, the qualities that I don't like about this as a holster (which I only wear on the waistband of gym or basketball shorts with a t-shirt over it) will probably make it a good pouch, seeing as there is apparently no difference between the holster and the pouch except for the top strap and belt clip. There's not a lot of bulk.

    Will this Pocket / Sleeve put the device into Holster Mode? Does the Torch Support that? I see the options in my profile. My old Curve sleeve fits it, but doesn't seem to change the mode.

    EDIT -- Seems like it does...

    "Plus, it features a battery-saving proximity sensor that shuts off the screen backlight as soon as you slide your device into place. The sensor also allows you to switch automatically to different notification settings (for ringing, vibration or both) based on whether your BlackBerry Torch 9800 is in or out of its case."

    Yeah, they finally updated their info on the web page. It seems Fommy ships on the 27th and MobileCityOnline on the 29th. But CB already has them - for almost double the MCO price!

    A woman goes into a butcher shop and asks how much pork chops cost. The butcher says "$5.00 a pound." The woman replies, "$5 a pound? They're $2.50 a pound at the butcher down the street." The butcher asks "Why didn't you buy them down the street?". The woman replies "They were all out of them." The butcher says "When we're out of stock, pork chops cost $2.50 a pound here, too."

    Yea, that's why I decided not to go with them and just purchase from CB. I monitored their website since the beginning of Sept. They first said they would arrive on the 8th...then the 11th...then the 18th....now the 29th...good luck if you even will have it shipped by then.

    I purchased from CB the first day they got em and have had mine for a few days now. I love it. I think it feels sturdier than previous holsters and welcome the slimness of it. Fits much better in jeans than the previous, bulkier leather pockets. It has a bit tighter fit than I was expecting, but I'm sure it will probably loosen up a bit the more I use it.
