Cellet Stingray Treo Case Review
There are surprisingly few Treo cases made of rubber and yet for a number of reasons this is a material that I personally find extremely appealing – particularly when I’m looking for a relaxed, more modern or sporty case.
Back in October I reviewed one such rubber Treo case with the Body Glove Rhythm Horizontal Pouch which I found quite impressive and well built. Now another rubber case has recently also been released with the Cellet Stingray specifically designed for the Treo 680 and Treo 750 and I have to admit that I am equally impressed by it.
For starters, like the more expensive Krusell Classic Multidapt case that I recently reviewed, the Cellet Stingray offers a full front protective plastic film cover which makes it ideal for people keen to protect the screen and keyboard from scratches or dirty/sweaty hands. The good thing is that Cellet has also ensure that the profile of this case does not interfere with normal keyboard usage.
The rubber material offers a wealth of design options and the Cellet Stingray case certainly makes use of a great many of these – the detailing is simply superb. Very nice touches such as the fine grey rubber outline around the case and the various openings (camera, speakerphone and side button above) as well as the raised and rugged sides for added grip clearly convey the feeling of carefully and meticulously designed and manufactured case – something which I always particularly appreciate.
The back of the case (image below) offers a solid connector for the included rotating (seven fixed positions) belt clip and sports cutouts for the camera and speakerphone.
Although I am not generally very keen on cases that place the Treo with the screen facing outwards (below) there is no doubt that I feel a little bit more secure about this particular model since it offers the full front plastic cover.
Overall I really like the Cellet Stingray case – at only $12.95 it is extremely good value, it has a superb build and I personally find the rubber construction very appealing. In fact this case is the closest to my ideal sports case and the only thing that I wish now is to see a future model released which has the option to attach an arm band instead of the current belt clip…
Treonauts are always looking for the best choices…
