Leather flip style case for AT&T Pure
Has anyone found a leather flip case for the Pure?
The only ones I've seen that even come near are over $50
which to me is just too damm much for a case
Heres my take on it
Many complain the Pures a "fingerprint magnet"
OK Maybe so but I can't really see putting the clear "helicopter rotor"
body armour shell, because the don't protect against inpact damadge only scratch damage.
A flip type case that is not removed (I don't want a pouch type)
is one hand to open and you don't need to put the case somewhere while using it.
It will protect both the body and screen against impact and scratching
Leather is reasonably smooth so it wont snag going in and out of my pocket
(like the silicon ones can) Its a little thinner than the silicon and hard rubber ones too. I think same or more durable than Silicone.
Taking it a step further I am normally not a big fan of the belt clip
prefer the pocket but have been thinking about a modular mounting system
where I cold move the clip directly to a car kit or desktop kit for charging
Using the locking swivel clips would allow for landscape or regular viewing
And since the clip is the mounting point not an indentation or cup,
you would keep the case on even in the mount. the cover would just be flipped opened to the top or side when in use.
Now I don't claim to have created the idea I've seen a nice one
for the Diamond2 and a few extra swivel clips could adapt most
any car and desk cradle or mounts.
I've attached one one Ebay thats for the Diamond looks pretty good
But I've bought too many cases for Diamond where the clip just won't stay attached to the Pure.
The mfr of this case recommend I wait a few weeks the Pure Case is
coming in then. Like to hear pro's and cons from anyone who has a similar
flip style case. Also like to hear pro's & cons on which side the flip cover is on
Side top or bottom? Ideally you could use the camera while in the case
without the flip cover obscuring the lens folding arrangement or maybe a
hole in front and back covers so you could fold front over rear cover?
Also possibly cover fastens in half open position so a quick desktop easel.
Any thoughts?? what am I missing (aside for individual preference)
I've obviously got too much time on my hands <BG> and there are
not enough actual cases for the Pure that are available for purchase .
I Love the Pure/Topaz

Old to PCs and PPC (Ipaqs for years) and embedded micros
Heres the one for the diamond2 I was looking at
Item number: 200403300227
I like the mounting (leather straps not a clip)
But I think one with a side flip/ book style makes using the camera easiest
