Question Case for N5

As no case comes with N5, I've been wondering what to use when my N5 comes....

Unless PDAir offers a case, I'm thinking of getting a sleeve made from Waterfield Designs http://www.sfbags.com.

What are you guys thinking of using for case?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Well I came across this one looking for accessories till my N5 arrives
http://www.amazon.com/Carrying-Magel.../dp/B002XYFT4I

It's nearly 7 inch wide so it "should" fit the N5 in place. Dynamism is releasing the 3G version on the 15th, not the 19th, so a few days to go

Thanks for the link, drifter77....dimensions (and weight) look OK...only concern is how rounded the case corners are from looking at the photo...ie, will it fit with rounded case corners?

@ArchiMark the problem is visualizing the case is a totally different experience than trying it out ourselves. In some review, someone pointed out that the N5 was surprisingly smaller than what he expected.

I also found this http://www.amazon.com/Case-Logic-GPS...883061&sr=1-76

Looks good and with more space, dimensions 10 x 6 x 2 inches ; 10.1 ounces looks good for the N5.

Understand completely, drifter77....hence reason for my comment...and regarding size, I think people will be most surprised at how narrow N5 is going front to back...

Certainly, that one would work, although for me too much extra room...I'll probably take N5 with me to my local stores and see if any work to my liking...if not, I'll probably order a custom size sleeve as noted in my original post above...

I just noticed the revised shipping date as well. Wonder how long it will take to get to me in Australia. $99 shipping was a killer though.

As for a carry case i'm not sure if i'm going to be getting one at all. A case would just add to the bulk. Hopefully the rubberized texture doesn't scratch so easily.

Yeah only a couple of days to go before they start shipping, am glad I got the 3G version

@maybemobile the carrying case will actually be for travel, not everyday use. I hope it fits the device + a couple of microSD cards (which are no problem) and maybe the extra battery.

Lucky you, got yours so early. Were you part of that group order they did at umpcfever?

Want to get a hold of the device before i start looking for cases if i am getting one at all. So hard visualizing a case without the actual unit.

I totally dig the ones they had for the S5 and X70 though, the "leather organizer" style is so hard to find =(

wonder if its possible to modify an organizer like this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/FILOFAX-PERSONAL...item53e23c3955

to fit the N5 =\

Hmmm...will take a look at those, not familiar with them offhand....

Good though, euwe_max, have done things like that in the past, have taken zippered CD storage cases and taken out inserts, etc....

Not to divert from the original subject, but right now I'm looking at the accessories I'm getting for the N5:

- Viliv S5 screen protector (should work with the N5)
- 16 GB MicroSD (for media and data)
- USB to VGA/HDMI converter (to enable video out via USB - no audio)
- Good looking case (still missing)

and I don't even have the device in my hands yet!

Actually, you are diverting from the original subject (cases...)....but that's OK...pretty close...

Good to know about S5 screen protector, where do you get them?

As for 16GB MicroSD...I just received a pretty fast one last week from MyDigitalDiscount.com (where I got a RunCore SSD for Dell Mini9 that I used to have...). It is a Transcend Class 6, so, pretty fast, yet still fairly reasonable price, includes a USB adapter which is nice to have too...

Don't know about the USB to VGA....and like you case is still a work in progress....

OK, back to N5 case discussion.....
