Comments on: Review: Scribble Chameleon m5 and m1 Hardcases

Handhelds are expensive, especially high end models. Protecting that investment should be a priority for everyone who owns one. News Editor and occasional reviewer Ed Hardy gave Scribble's line of hardcases a try for a week and he said they provide some of the best protection available at a reasonable price.

Press the logo...

on the m1 case I had for review, you could press the Scribble logo thing on the front. This has a little nub behind it that presses the scroll button to show the clock in the window. Give that a try. I got mine a while back, so it's possible they removed this feature (it seemed a little flimsy on mine) in favor of better protection.

And, the Chameleon-V fits in the pockets of all the pants I wear... maybe you just have really smally pockets. ;-) But you're right, it doubles the thickness of the device, but the added protection is worth it.

Nope, it's still there and thanks for pointing it out. I feel kind of dumb for not noticing it myself. I changed the incorrect paragraph in the article.

I've thought about investing in some pants with cargo pockets. They are in style now (or at least they were the last time I looked) and seem the perfect way to carry around a bulky handheld.

Cargo pants are the way to go for me. I usually carry my 710c in my right regular pocket, my cell phone in one of the cargo pockets, my wallet in the back right pocket, and my keys in the left regular pocket.

I love cargo pants... although we'll just have to see about those new Dockers that are coming out...

Really? Around here cargos seem to have been going out of style. Maybe they aren't, and it's just the not the "hip and trendy teen thing" anymore


I love my Palm . . . do you?

I bought some of the dockers new mobile pants and they're really cool. You wouldn't even notice the pockets if you didn't know they were there. $52 each but worth it.

Dockers Mobile Pant

OK, a little off topic but, Bay Area Sears stores have the Dockers Mobile Pant on sale for $34.99.
I believe all pants will be made this way in the not too distant future.

I saw an ad for these on TV tonight during prime time. Looks like they are going to push them pretty hard.

Wow, this is actually pretty amazing. We've been able to hold an entire dscussion about something and every single poster so far has been logged in. Kinda cool.

And look folks, no flames!


BTW: Ed/Ryan you guys should consider requiring regstration to post . . .

I love my Palm . . . do you?

I'm not going to wade into the one about cargo pants (you know we all wear a tophat and tails over here in the UK).

Just to say that the press-button logo is still very much a feature of our m1 hard cases and a popular one at that.

Since Greg did his review we've added an attachment system to the case and sorted out the logo button - you should find it more sturdy now. We also changed the colours and they look a lot better (people tell us).

Thanks for reading.


Requiring to post......

What would that do? So you would know exactly who was flaming who? Really, requiring to post would cause more problems then we already have.

Scribble Chameleon m5 and m1 Hardcases

I have an M1 case for my M105 and am very impressed with it. Yes it does make it bulkier, but it is still able to fit into my pocket and the addded size is a small price to pay for the protection it provides.

I have had a hardcase for my Psion 5mx for almost 2 years and it has saved my Psion from damage on many occasions.

If you want to protect your Palm forget about what it looks like and buy one of these cases, they are great.

I have a 5mx and Revo Plus. Are you talking about the soft or hard case?

Iain @ 8/20/2001 4:01:41 PM #
The hardcases! They are excellent and can withstand quite hard knocks. As I said, I have had the one for my Psion 5mx for 2 years and it has undoubtedly saved it many times.

I e-mailed the guys over at Scribble TWICE! mind you, asking them if the Chameleon for the Palm Vx would fit in a regular shirt pocket.. Both times I never recieved a response! I gave them a couple of days to respond, so it isn't like I wanted an immediate answer. If they can't even answer a simple email, I will take my business elsewhere. They can take their British Stuffiness and ......

They would not know your 'regular' shirt pocket size...really you Americans are so...
