Review & Giveaway: iSkin Vibes For BB 9700

main Review: iSkin Vibes For BlackBerry – 9700

Price: $34.99

website: www.iskin.com

Package: The sample I was sent for review included one iSkin Vibe for the BlackBerry Bold 9700, along with a user guide an LCD cleaning wipe with an antiglare LCD protective film.

Bodyguard: The iskin protective bodyguard comes in sleek bright colors depending on the color you choose even the black color has a glossy look to it. The iSkin Vibe comes fairly close to the Otterbox commuter series when it comes to durability and sturdy feel to it. It is nothing like the cheap silicon skins you can purchase by the dozens but one drop and you may have a damaged BB. The Vibe’s bodyguard has a strong feel to it and at the same time a nice smooth feel to it.

Convenience Access Buttons: The Bodyguard wraps around the BB all around to protect those vulnerable parts that usually get damaged when it is dropped. The convenience access buttons are all covered but they have a added buttons to the bodyguard to fit the BB buttons making it easy to use.

Install: To install the bodyguard the first few times it may seem a little bit hard since the bodyguard is firm yet lightweight. To place your BlackBerry inside the easiest way is to place the bottom part of the BB in, then push it in  one of the top corners first then the last.

Pros: The iSkin Vibes is a light bodyguard for your BlackBerry and they offer quite a few different colors. One of the major advantage is that it offers great protection against bumps and it will not fall out. The Bodyguard snuggles the BB all around so that it stays on even if is dropped. They antiglare also offers some protection for the screen against scratches. You get all of that without adding much bulk to the device and you can sport your favorite color with a loud presence. You are sure to get attention from people wanting to look at your BB.

Cons: The only problem I had was the headphone jack is covered with a plug and is a bit hard to remove sometimes.

Overall the iSkin vibes are stylish and don’t compromise protection, they offer a strong cover that is light weight and made out of a durable material resistant to shocks. I like the way it feels and is easy to type. If you are looking for a stylish yet light weight protective case for the BlackBerry check out the iSkin Vibes at this link.

  21. I’d love one for my Bold 9650! Its not bulky and looks cool!

  22. Oh, I’d love one of these in red or purple for my Curve 8530! My husband gave me an OtterBox Defender and I HATE it! Its too bulky and I never use it! I only put it on when he is around because I don’t want to carry that bulky thing around and I know he will be very angry if I don’t use it.

  23. Well, if this will protect my 9700, while still letting it fit into the stock Holster, I want one!
    I currently use the OtterBox Impact rubber skin. It was only $10, but is so bulky, I had to buy an ugly belt holster made for an older smartphone. And, it does not allow my BB to sleep.
