TECH - MC6 Magnesium case for Treo 650

The TreoCentral Store has this magnesium case on-sale, today only, for $19.95. It's a protective hardcase for the Treo 650 smartphone that usually costs twice as much.

My only concern is the lack of a reset hole. I drilled one in my aluminum case, but I'd rather not have to do that regularly.

Anyway, I thought this was worth sharing.

I wish I had it before I dropped it on the cement twice and chipped it up.

Sorry to hear that, Princess. I definitely recommend a hard case for these kinds of phones.

Someone had me thinking about a pocket pc, recently (it has built-in wi-fi, unlike our beloved Treo 650), has a larger screen (and keyboard), and runs on Windows Mobile. I think it's the 6700.

Anyway, I've considered it, but it's one of those with the slide-out keyboard. I can't imagine that there's a hard case that'd accomodate that form-factor, so I guess I'll have to pass.

No hardcase potential is a deal-breaker for me. These phones cost too much for as "carefully clumsy" as myself to go without sturdy protection.
