Palm Form Fit Case

Mon Jul 10, 2006 - 4:56 PM EDT - By Jay Gross


Palm's Form Fit leather case dresses your Treo to impress. It provides very good protection, while still leaving the essential controls accessible, operable without removing the case. The clear window lets you see who's calling, look up contact information, and even use the keyboard. And the belt clip keeps your Treo up front for all to see and admire. For a small price, this is a lot of case.

UPDATE: Palm has replaced the Form Fit Case with a new model that has a slightly different form factor and a differently shaped front window. Apparently addressing user complaints about the usability of the Treo 650's keyboard through the window, the new version has scooped-out sides that open up the view of the keyboard even more. It also omits the fold-down flap for the camera, and costs twice as much as the model I reviewed.

To clarify: I have had zero trouble using the keyboard through the plastic window. That's saying something , as I have large, arthritic-stiff hands. Moreover, a case this inexpensive, with the quality of construction this model has, deserves a high rating, even if it might need a cleaning now and then.
