I’m too lazy to search Bangkok’s malls and IT outlets for a cover for my second-hand BlackBerry Bold 9790. I use this device as a second cell phone, with a BIS package, particularly when I conduct outreach in the region. Anyway I ordered a soft shell via Lazada, an online sales platform. Took less then a week, before the item was delivered to my house.
Well packed, good box and soft shell was covered with plastic.
The black shell has a smooth feel to it, and light. Texture feels slippery.
Used it for about a week, and sometimes the BB9790 overheats. Most probably due to Bangkok’s incredible summer and the casing traps heat.
Accidentally dropped a few times, and its not bad, as it absorbed a bit of shock. Paid 298 Baht for it, which included the delivery.
Soft shell doesn’t add bulk to the device. So its ‘okay’ to buy if you have lose change to spare.
