    Yet another case - Sena

    Similar to Covertec and Piel Frama (plastic sleeve over keyboard), but you can charge your 660X in the cradle without taking it out of the case:

    I like Sena cases and love the fact that you can use the cradle while in the case... but the plastic over the keyboard does not appeal to me

    Probably a great option for those who like the Covertec or Piel Frama but want to be able to use the cradle without removing the case.

    For me, I guess I'll stick with my EB for now.

    This one is a nice looking case. But just like the rest of them it loops underneath the phone to snap. I wish they would make a flip-down (rather than flip-up) case with magnetic shut. That would be the one I'd buy.

    I agree with Sarah that it is nice that you can drop it in the cradle to charge or activesync w/o removing the case. That's a plus. All it needs is an aluminum insert to protect the screen from direct blows.

    Edit: wait, no belt clip and no camera openning

    I like Sena, but the Piel Frama looks more attractive with those two features.

    Magnetic Snap Closure
    Hot-sync thru cradle
    Button Bumpers

    Belt-clip?

    I love Sena cases and I had a nice one for my Treo 600. If I was in the market, I'd get one in red.

    No more accessories for me though. I'm looking at the i730.

    Take a look at Brando's hard leather case. It flips down rather than up, and it protects the phone like no other case I've seen.

    Giving up on the XV6600 already? In this case check out the i830 CDMA/GSM combo PPC world phone. I Don't know when it will hit the market

    That is an awesome case. It looks like a combination hard holster and leather flip-down. Very rugged looking. Okay, this one is on my list. Thanks, Matt.

    I hadn't seen the Brando. That is cool. How does the phone stay in place? Friction? How is using the keyboard? Does the cover flip back flat? Can you sync with a cable in the case?

    Sweet. They don't make one for the position of the camera on the CDMA phones do they?
    Just switched from PPC6700 to AT&T Tilt.
