You don’t see as many covers for mobile devices these days – whether that’s because the devices are more sturdy or if it’s because covers can look a bit naff, I don’t know. But I suspect the latter. It doesn’t hae to be so – there are some decent-looking cases around – like Covertec’s new smartphones cases.
As the name suggests, these cases are custom-made for smartphones – designed to protect, cradle and snugly fit the contours of your smartphone, while leaving all functions easily accessible. And what’s more – there’s no dodgy logos or loud designs – just plain coloured leather with "saddlery" finish and a natural beige overstitching that embroiders each case. They also have some additional built-in storage, including pockets for credit and memory cards.
Currently available for use with the Sony Ericsson P series, iMate/XDAs/SPVs and the Nokia 9500, you can pick them up for around £30.
