P800 Hand Crafted Crocodile Skin Case - Lovin' it....

I finally managed to get off my lazy ass and take pics of my stylish P800 hand crafted crocodile skin case. I got it back in late March after waiting 3 weeks for it to be hand crafted..

I am happy with it because it allows me to use my flip without taking the unit out of the case... The case has no plastic covering over the phone in order to allow one to use their flip.. I use a screen protector w/ a perfect fit that I bought from Circuit City for about 10 bucks. The case has about 3 slots for my extra Sim card and my memory stick plus a larger slot pocket the length of the phone which I can use to store folded paper. The case is kinda stiff which protects the phone really well.. I've already dropped the phone at least 20 times, but that case cushioned it well. I use a Dr. Grip pen that has a Pen + Pencil + Stylus all in one. I use the Dr Grip stylus pen because I litteraly don't have to remove the unit from the case at all. I also have an HBH-60 that doesn't lose quality because of the case. I actually keep the case snap closed at all times and make the call with the voice recognition feature of the headset. I have since upgraded to R2D and using a 128mb mem. stick. The cost on this case was about 98 Euros (~ $107USD) at the time of purchase.. It was worth the penny for a phone I bought months ago for close to 1k. So why not show it off with a little style... Here it is..

Poor chickens, poor ducks... Erm.. Outta topic.. Nice case! But it'll make the phone too bulky to slip it in my pockets. :(

A phone is for use, not for display otherwise you lock it in one of your collection cabinets. I'd prefer it "slip it in my pockets" (I can feel its existence ).

Phone dimensions: 117 x 59 x 27 mm
Phone dimensions w/ case: 119 x 62 x 28 mm

The extra padding is worth the extra "bulk" which the dimension changes barely show... Besides when you're carrying around a BT headset the phone gets tucked away nicely. Or you can sit on it like my buddy did and crack it.. The factory case is crap in both design, appearance, and durability. I think this case gives it a professional look and not like the piece of junk universal cases you find in Malls and street shops. Funny to know that I use to find crocodiles in my swimming pool when I lived in Miami, FL. Now i'm finding them in my phone case.

I think Steve Irwin, the Australian croc hunter, could appreciate one of those.....

I'm sure crocodiles would have human skin handbags if they could, I don't think they would care much. Besides, it's probably not real croc.

Cool design though, I like it a lot.

Poor ducks, poor hens?!? You don't know much about leather do you?

There are lots of ducks and hens, there aren't lots of crocodiles. I agree with Muzik.

It's a real croc. skin. At least I hope so after paying more then $100USD for it. Being that it was customed designed for me in Spain there's an authenticity disclaimer for purposes of guaranteed craftsmanship. When I lived down in Miami crocs took a couple kids lives.. They popped up in the news a lot down there.. I even had one that used to hang around in the lake behind my condo...

Im sure if a croc got my kid id skin it alive... But thats just it, we know that these crocs get hungry and tend to look for fresh meat, if we live in an enviroment close to them then we are probably the ones invading their territory and should be more extra careful. Man this is really off topic. The casing looks good, I just hope it was made off a croc who did of old age

very nice.

I hope someone will come out with a line of these, as it looks much better than every other case I've seen so far.
