The Seidio Innocase II Surface for the HTC Thunderbolt will give you great protection for your phone, and doesn't hit your wallet too hard. It's two-piece sliding design is easy to put on and off, with a soft interior so you don't scratch your Thunderbolt while using it. The locking mechanism is nice and tight, and seems to be the improved version like we have seen for the HTC Inspire, so this one isn't going to come apart in your pocket. The case is made from a hard plastic material, and has a soft touch coating that feels very nice in your hand while using it.
All your ports and controls are easy to access, with precision cutouts that are well designed and large enough to use the buttons and ports without any trouble while the case is on. The corners and edges wrap around the front of the phone, and give enough of a lip to keep the screen off the surface of whatever its laying on. I'm especially liking the way the power button was cutout, as often hard cases leave you fumbling to hit the button -- not so this time around. There's even a cutout below the kickstand for the magic antenna button.
Possibly the nicest aspect of the Seidio Innocase Surface series is the matching Seidio Innocase Holster. It's hard plastic with a felt lined interior, and it's face-in design makes for a great way to carry your phone with no fear of bumps and scratches. The retaining clip is large and easy to operate, and while the phone is in the holster you still have access to the power button, volume rocker, and USB port. The swiveling belt clip offers a choice of carrying options, and the clips are easy to open while still having a strong grip.
You can purchase the Seidio Innocase II Surface for the Thunderbolt in black, sapphire blue, burgundy, and amethyst for $27.95 from the Android Central store, as well as the matching Seidio Innocase Holster in black for $27.95. More pictures follow, after the break.
