Droid 3 accessories leaked in inventory list

1

While you're waiting for official word about the Motorola Droid 3, and tired of looking longingly at the Motorola Milestone 3, you can start thinking about what accessories you'll be picking up.  This leaked list from Verizon includes the inductive charging battery door, a 1930mAh extended battery, and a pair of docks -- one for multimedia and one for your car. 

Nothing we can do to hurry it to market, (July 13 anyone?) but it's nice to see that some accessories should be available, hopefully on day one.

HTC Thunderbolt case review: Qmadix Snap-On Cover with Holster

4

The Qmadix Snap-On cover for the HTC Thunderbolt is durable, slim, and easy to install case ideal for a basic level of protection. Qmadix leaves much of the Thunderbolt revealed while protecting the corners, back, and sides. It's easy-on/easy-off, with no snapping, pulling, jamming or contorting necessary.

It's ribbed surface gives you some confidence when you're pulling it out of your pocket-- one thing you can't call this case is slippery. One thing about the ridges, though, is a bit of bulk: you'll notice a thickness that the Barely There case lacks, but by no means is the Qmadix a porker. The case has a nice rubberized finished that makes it feel pretty great in hand.

The Qmadix cover comes with a holster that also looked and felt really nice. It too has ridges to match the cover, as well as a super-soft inner surface that's oh-so-gentle on your Thunderbolt's screen.

The Qmadix cover isn't going to cut it for the super clumsy, and the platicky holster isn't designed for mega impact. But if you're looking for a stylish cover that doesn't add much bulk and will protect your Bolt from the perils of your pocket, you'd be hard pressed to complain about Qmadix. Hit the break for a few more pics.

The Qmadix Snap-On Cover with Holster for the HTC Thunderbolt is on sale now in the Android Central store for $24.95.

HTC Thunderbolt case review: Case-Mate Barely There case

8

 

Case-Mate has a pretty good reputation for making solid, affordable smartphone cases, and its Barely There case for the HTC Thunderbolt is no exception. It offers protection from scratches, dings, and other miscellaneous boo-boos in a slim, stylish form factor.

The Barely There case lives up to its name-- covering only the back and corners of the Thunderbolt, the case is noticeably skimpier than the competition. This isn't necessarily a bad thing: Barely There looks great, and adds almost no distinguishable heft or girth to the smartphone. I love how simple it is to apply and to remove the case-- there's no voodoo here, and you're not going to kill yourself trying to pry this thing off. This simplicity comes with a downside, though, as one solid drop to the floor will send the Barely There case flying off your phone. If you're a true klutz, look elsewhere.

If you're looking for some added style for your Thunderbolt and aren't worried about maximum protection, the Barely There case is a slim, lightweight, and durable choice. It comes in your choice of Black, Pink, and Metallic Silver, all of which look really nice on the Bolt. The Barely There case is on-sale now in the Android Central store for $17.95.

HTC ThunderBolt case review: Seidio CONVERT Combo

4

 

I hate making decisions. I'm one of those people that when given the choice between hard ice cream and soft-serve, I have a panic attack. I love all ice cream! How is someone supposed to make that choice? So whenever there's an opportunity for me to choose “both” instead of one or the other, I jump on it. No, this isn't an advertisement for Dairy Queen. This is a review of the Seidio CONVERT Combo for the HTC Thunderbolt. Why choose between hard and soft when you could have both?

Let's break it down, after the break.

HTC EVO 4G case review: Trident Cyclops Series

13

If you're looking to strike the perfect balance between full-phone protection and still maintaining a slim phone, the Trident Cyclops Series Cases for HTC EVO 4G are the way to go. You're still getting all of the dust and particle-covering rubber that you get from some other offerings (like the Seidio CONVERT Combo) but without the same bulk and heft that mandates it goes on a belt holster.

The Trident Cyclops Series actually comes in two parts: the hard, plastic shell that surrounds your phone, and the rubberized skin that goes around the outside edges of the shell. The rubber feels fine in hand, and that's where you're actually getting all of your dust rejection powers. The rubber skin covers all of the open ports on the phone as well as volume rocker and power button, ensuring nothing gets in.

One of the cooler features of this case is that it comes with a built-in screen protector, not unlike the Otterbox Defender line of cases. When the phone is in the case, you can't even tell there's a thin plastic screen separating you from your phone's screen, but if you're anal like me, you'll be spending a lot of time trying to make sure there's no dust on the phone and the screen protector before finally locking your EVO inside.

Best part? You don't lose access to your kickstand! That might sound silly, but I use my kickstand often, so getting to keep my phone massively protecting and getting to flip out my kickstand at a moment's notice is too sweet a deal for me. You can pick up the Trident Cyclops Series Cases for HTC EVO 4G in the Android Central Store for $32.95.

Get your Vizio tablet screen protector at Walmart, while you wait for your Vizio tablet

9

We already know that Walmart is going to be stocking the upcoming Vizio 8-inch tablet in their stores, but seeing accessories already on the shelf is always welcomed.  In this case, you can grab the Griffin screenkit (which appears to be a screen protector and a microfiber cloth) for the Vizio tablet and look lovingly at it while you're waiting for the tablet itself to turn up in the next aisle.  Of course if you're Blake Griffin, you probably have these on your own shelf, next to your own Vizio tablet.

HTC EVO 4G case review: Case-Mate Barely There

9

Not everyone is interested in the biggest and bulkiest case designed for their phone. Some keep their phones in their pocket, some in their purse, and for these people, I suggest the Case-Mate Barely There Case for the HTC EVO 4G.

The case is a single, thin-yet-hard impact resistant shell that fully covers the backside of your EVO 4G, sans camera, flash, and speaker. It doesn't cover the top or the bottom of your phone, so your headphone jack, power button, USB port, and HDMI part all still uncovered, as is the volume rocker on the side of the phone. It literally just snaps around the phone and isn't very difficult to get off. For the front of the screen, Case-Mate includes a screen protector that'll cover up your whopping display.

If you're after a case that'll protect the minimum essentials of your phone without adding the heft of other brands, the Case-Mate Barely There Case is for you. You can find it in the Android Central Store in black and pink for $17.95. More pics are after the break.

Droid Bionic cases on the shelf at Meijer

9

A tipster just sent us a few pictures of Motorola Droid Bionic cases sitting pretty on the shelves at Meijer.  According to our friend, these just got stocked today.  While this doesn't mean anything about a release (see the HTC Thunderbolt ), they sure look lonely sitting there empty.  Maybe Meijer knows something we don't, or maybe it's all wishful thinking.  Either way, nobody makes or stocks accessories for things that won't show up eventually.  We just have to be patient.  There's another pic after the break, check it out.

Thanks, John Trojan!

Android Accessory Review: Body Glove Snap-On Case for the Samsung Galaxy Tab

1

If you’re a Samsung Galaxy Tab owner (of the 7-inch variety -- the Tab, of course) who has been looking for a good case that’s doesn’t add a ton of bulk, the Body Glove Snap-On Case may be for you.

I’m often skeptical when it comes to snap-on cases because I’ve had experiences where they haven't been as durable as the alternatives, snapping apart in the first couple days of use. Thus far, however, this case has performed extremely well. It actually took a fair amount of prying to get it off, which is a good sign.

The hard shell feels very solid and comfortable in the hand, particularly when compared to some cases that are all plastic and feel a little "cheap."

I’ve also had experiences where some very nice cases were unusable because they covered up some of the ports or cameras; this case leaves everything open.

Since the case fits right around the Tab, it really doesn’t add that much bulk to it. It adds a bit of thickness that is actually welcomed by me because of the protective layering that it adds.

The only thing I miss from this case is the ability to prop it up when playing games or watching movies. I originally thought it was going to be a deal breaker for me but I have yet to switch back because of how unobtrusive this case is turning out to be.

If you're interested in the Body Glove Snap-On case, you can get one for $29.95 from the Android Central Store. More pictures of the case after the break.

Android Accessory Review: Body Glove Case for the Motorola Droid 2

13

Like many of you out there I have a love/hate relationship with cases on my device, I love the protection, but often times hate the feel. With a recent change of career I found myself looking for a nice rugged case that I could use with a belt clip, or without if I wanted, and while this may seem like a lot to look for in a case, I was able to find it all with the Body Glove Case for the Motorola Droid 2. Let's hit the break and take a deeper look at this case, along with some more pictures of the fit.
