Speck See-Thru Hardshell Case for Treo 680

Mon Jul 30, 2007 - 8:03 AM EDT - By Jay Gross


The Speck Products See-Thru Hard Case for the Treo 680 does what cases are supposed to do: protect the Treo you entrust to their clutches from harm. I quibble with its screen protection insert, which the company touts as “touch-through,” but it does offer another measure of protection beyond a simple stick-on.

The case comes with a plastic clip that holds the case to your belt, and you can choose not to use the included “touch-through” pane, as I did. The product leaves the important controls and features of the Treo 680 accessible, except for the SD card slot. You have to remove the case to get to that. All that’s nice as can be, but the best part is that it doesn’t totally obscure the color of your 680. Did I mention mine’s crimson?

For $24.95, it doesn’t seem like you’re getting much, and you’re not. The fit is tight, and the design is simple, however, and for a basic Treo case $24.95 isn’t too bad.
