T615 Cases Coming Soon from InnoPocket and Vaja
Many people are nervous about carrying around an expensive handheld without some kind of case to protect it. With Sony's T615C so new, the selection of cases has been weak. However, in the near future that problem may be solved. Both Vaja Cases and InnoPocket are now taking preorders for T615C cases that will be available within a month.
The one from Vaja is a leather flip-cover case. It has openings to allow the user to reach all its buttons and the Jog Dial. By flipping back the cover, the Memory Stick slot, stylus, and infrared port are exposed.
The HotSync port isn't covered but the case is too thick to allow the cradle to be used. The user must get a travel cable or use IR to HotSync.
The flip cover contains one large pocket and is held closed with a magnetic clasp.
It will come in four possible schemes: two types of black leather, a brown/green two-tone, and brown.
It will sell for $65 or $70 with a belt clip. It will be available in about three weeks.
Innopocket is taking pre-orders for the Metal Deluxe Case for Clie PEG-T Series, which opens to the right. Its cover can't flip all the way around.
It has cutouts to allow access to the Memory Stick slot, Jog Dial, Stylus, and the HotSync port without removing the handheld from the case.
It has been designed to add very little bulk to the handheld but still offer some protection. It's 4.75 by 3.0 by .70 inches. For comparison, the T615C is 4.65 by 2.83 by .50. It's made of aluminium and has a neoprene lining.
The company says it will be available in early April and will sell for $30.
