First Thoughts : Otterbox Defender case for Bold 9700…

I just received my Otterbox defender case for my Bold 9700. Here are my first thoughts:

– Given there are very few rugged cases for the 9700, this is a good option.

– The retail price is ridiculous, thankfully one can be bought for around $30 if you shop around.

– the installation process is really simple if you follow the directions.

– this gave my 9700 extra heft (in a good way). I always found the 9700 to be a little “too” light, especially after upgrading from an 8820…

– The Keyboard membrane is almost impossible to get perfectly lined up with the molding. be patient here…
