Best Treo Case Award: SPE P6 Pouch Case
Any Treonaut who has recently looked to purchase a new Treo case may have been somewhat overwhelmed by the breadth of choices available as there are now well over 100 cases across 14 categories. In addition to this there are also over 500 other Treo accessories.
To become a “Bestselling Treo Case” any single item must therefore rise above 100 other cases and to become a “Bestselling Treo Accessory” it must climb above over 500 products overall. Given this highly competitive field, I thought that the time had come to give recognition to one item that has consistently managed to remain at the top of both bestselling charts for nearly two years now: the SPE P6 Pouch Case.
It is not difficult to understand why the P6 Pouch Case has proven to be such a popular accessory. There is undoubtedly a question of value with a price of $19.95 which makes it one of the most affordable Treo cases available. However, the fact that the P6 Pouch Case is affordable is only one small part of the overall equation and it’s really the design and build that make it stand out.
The P6 is a high quality universal leather case that fits all Treo smartphones and its best feature is probably the fact that it offers a very wide and strong front magnetic flap (above) which has been slightly recessed into the case to reduce the thickness and keep a very low profile (image below) without jeopardizing the protection. There is also a ballistic nylon front which gives it a very modern feel and a full velvet lining to ensure scratch protection.
Next is the fact that the construction of the case offers five openings with the one at the bottom centre to allow your fingers to push your Treo out of the case and the top right/left openings allowing you to keep a corded headset (such as my Seidio 2in1 Earbuds below) plugged-in to listen to music while in the case.
Finally there is a strong fixed belt clip to ensure that the case stays firmly by your side and within easy reach to answer calls or check your emails. Separately, I also like the fact that there is no logo of any kind to be seen on the front of the case.
Overall the SPE P6 Pouch Case offers not only terrific value but also excellent protection in an extremely comfortable and well built package. It is also a case that has uniquely withstood the test of time by remaining a bestselling Treo accessory for years and I have no doubt that it will continue to do so for quite some time to come.
Treonauts always look for the best of the best…
