    so I just bought a Playbook!! (Yay ME!! )

    now I'm looking for a nice case. I want a convertible/portfolio style case and I want it in a purple color.

    Most of the Blackberry branded convertible cases are black, and the 3rd party one ones I've see (online) in various colors look kind of cheap.

    Anybody recommend a good case offered in different colors? Thanks!

    Welcome! I was personally looking for a gem encrusted - Be Dazzled case like i've seen for the iphone, but also failed. Let me know if you find anything. The PB case, while boring, is of good quality.

    i have a black one from Tecknet currently fitted that does have a purple version availible, its a nice case that suffers from one small flaw, no cut out for the camera. but other than that... its a brilliant case. well made, high quality, and worth well more than the price unless your big into the camera.

    Cover-up do a slightly nicer one, its a lot thinner in profile and doesnt add too much to the overal width, but price is higher than tecknets offering.

    a friend has this one (again in black) and i must say i prefer it to the Blackberry branded folio. solidly made, soft to the touch. looks sharp.

    or.... for extra bling, the Blackberry envelope is also available in purple.

    The Cygnett case covers the bezel, so it may be a problem to do the bezel swipes. Be wary of this as I think a lot of cases were made before manufactures were aware of the bezel swipes. If they seem really cheap on Ebay, that is usually why. Also, if a listing doesn't show the case in an open position so you can see if the bezels are covered, avoid it as well.

    So its like a the TJ Maxx and Marshall stores we have here. Their merchandise varies so they dont have an online store.

    I emailed the company about it, but I have received a response yet.

    It makes me sad that the cases aren't as cute as the cases for IPad's. We are so limited on what we can choose from.

    Yeah, there are very few options. Especially in-store, you have to go online

    But I've found the perfect girly purple case now so I'm happy

    The Cover-Up case looks well made and the leather is beautiful, plus it's a stand. I'm going to order one but now I have to decide if I want red or purple.

    Take a look at this. A little pricey but thin and practical. Bought one to try out but never got it. The wife intercepted it and it's now on her PlayBook. BTW, the cover has built-in magnet so the cover stays snugly closed. This is the only case I have found so far with this feature.

    Did anyone else order this case?

    Amazon.com: Cover-Up BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet PC Leather Cover Case (Version Stand) - Purple: Computers & Accessories

    Mine arrived today but it doesn't fit well at all. It was hard to get the PlayBook in the case and it just looks too small. Also the case doesn't close fully. Think I'm going to return it.
