Conclusion

Seidio makes a myriad of variations and permutations of extended batteries and ultra-slim cases for the different Treo models. It's beyond the scope of this review to list, link to, name, and picture them all. My current stable of Treos is a pair of 700ps, and I like a hard-shell, smooth-backed case because of the way I carry my phones and want instant access to them without having to fish and fumble them out of a pouch case. To each his own.

Seidio's new Super slim Crystal Case for EXTENDED Treo 700p/wx with 3200mAh Extended Battery is a beautifully form-fitting clear hard-shell case with perfect cut-outs and is the only case of its kind (of which I'm aware) that is specifically designed to accommodate a Treo 700p/w/wx with the mammoth 3200mAh battery and fatter battery door installed. Although we're talking about over thirty bucks (when you factor in the case plus shipping) for a couple of feather-weight pieces of plastic, so be it – it has no competition.

If you're a power-hungry Treo 700 owner and use that huge battery for all the reasons it exists, and are looking for a slick, low-profile case specifically designed to hold the combo, look no further.

And to Seidio – please think about a slight re-design of this case that incorporates a flip-up screen-protecting window, and lose the plastic crossbar.
