RB1 Rubberized Fit Treo Case Review
For all those Treonauts who have been jealous of the few (like me ) who managed to get one of Palm’s Black Tie Limited Edition Treo 650 there is now a simple and reasonable alternative in the form of the RB1 Rubberized Fit case below which is one of the latest Treo cases to have been added in our Treo Accessory Shop.
The RB1 case is essentially a hard and thin plastic case (very similar to the CrystalCase) which has been sprayed with a rubber coating available in four colours below.
The main difference compared to the CrystalCase are the side clips which hold the two layers together (pictured below). Where some people found the clips on the CrystalCase not to be strong enough, the RB1 clips latch very firmly into place to protect your Treo thanks to their particular design.
Once your Treo is firmly ‘sandwiched’ between the two layers the RB1 case offers excellent protection against scratches and an additional safety net in case of a drop to the ground. The edges of the case are slightly too raised around the keyboard for my liking but it nonetheless does not significantly interfere with daily use of the keys. Additionally, access to the top SD card and mute button, the bottom HotSync port, camera and speakers are all properly open.
Finally, the back of the RB1 features a removable belt clip but my preference would be to use the Skinned Shield Holster instead because 1) I find a holster to be one of the most comfortable ways to carry my Treo; 2) it protects my screen by facing inwards instead of outwards and 3) the black on black look of the RB1 combined with the holster is absolutely stunning…
Overall, if you’re looking for a great, simple and affordable way to protect your Treo while transforming it with a rubberized look then there’s no doubt that you will be absolutely delighted with the new RB1 Rubberized Fit case.
Treonauts are always looking for the perfect fit…
