Finally- a top quality, hands-free, use on the go PDA case is available. The PDA Pro/PDA Plus series from PDA Skins.
The PDA Plus measures 6″ x 3.7″ x 1.6″, with inside compartment dimensions of 5.5″ x 3.5″ x .9″. The PDA Pro is thinner, because it comes without the extra compartment large enough to carry a Targus keyboard, cell phone, or digital camera.
Each case features room for pens, batteries, money, business/credit cards, even expansion cards. The top-quality glove leather cases feature double stitched seams, and solid feel and construction.
Both cases come with a shoulder strap that can be lengthened to carry the case at your side, and shortened to go around your neck and hold the case for use below your neck. Both cases feature a solid-looking belt/pocket clip if you prefer that method. The PDA Plus also features a double-stitch loop that is perfect for attaching to your belt. Now, on to the good stuff!
The main feature of this line of cases is the ability to use straight from the hip. This is accomplished by the use of a “velcro hinge”.
The PDA goes in the outer portion of the case, which zips open to reveal four velcro strips, 2 on each side of the compartment. These strips connect, basically creating hinges. When you unzip the compartment, the PDA folds out facing you; the hinges hold it horizontal, while resting against your hip. All buttons are accessable, and it is easy to read/input information using your stylus. Finished? zip up the compartment and you are on your way.
Negatives? The PDA does have the ability to turn on if something presses against the case with enough pressure. Simply using the plastic cover accessory from my Visor Deluxe solved that instantly. Also, the velcro strip that goes on the back of your PDA is improperly sized for some PDA’s (interferes with Expansion cover). The small velcro squares would be better.
Very minor quibbles for a versatile, top-quality leather PDA case that draws attention and comments after 3 days of ownership. 29.95 and 39.95, free ground shipping on the PDA Plus.
