by Reads (4,814)

You know the story.  You’ve shelled out a bunch of money for your Toshiba e740, e750/5, e310 or e330/5 PDA and now you face two issues.  First, stick it into the treacherous compartment in my briefcase or purse, vulnerable to inevitable scratches from loose change, car keys or heaven forbid, a cursed uncapped pen that makes a mark on my new screen?  I think not.  Second, get some big bulky case that doubles the size of my Pocket PC?  Uhh, no.  So, what to do?

Here s a solution:  Specifically here, we are discussing a case for the Toshiba e300 and e700 series, well-known for its super slim design.  Must you be forced to bulk it up with some ugly, oversized universal case that seems to be the only option at your local retailer? 

Covertec ( offers an attractive solution with the e300 / e700 series Toshiba case.  Like many products that look good in pictures, consumers want to know how good it really is.  Well I would like to illustrate an authentic impression of what this product offers.

At first glance, the design of this case portrays an image of professionalism.  This is not a sporty case, but rather an elegant case that could easily find its way into a conference room meeting among the management team of Company X Inc.  The case is well-constructed of high quality leather.

In addition to the appealing two-toned leather construction, the case is stitched together with a light colored shade of decorative stitching that adds a sharp look. The interior lid contains pockets for Secure Digital cards and credit cards.  Additionally a plastic insert is integrated into the lid to add increased protection for your PPC s screen.  A reinforced leather slot cleverly attached to the cover with an elastic material assures a secure fit for your Toshiba and is compatible with both the e300 and e700 models. 

The Covertec case uses a magnetic clasp to easily secure the lid.  When the unit has been placed in the closed case, the result is a thin, sharp and easy to carry package.  One other detail that should be mentioned is that this case allows easy access to the buttons and ports without removing the unit.  A drawback to this otherwise clever design is that the top left corner of the PDA is left unprotected. A bad fall could cause significant damage if the unit was to land on this corner!

Overall I would recommend this case to professionals and people who desire an elegant look to complement their PDA.  The Covertec Toshiba Case is available from the Covertec website in several colors and is priced at $39.95.
