    Z10 with Otter Box...Caution

    I've used Otter Box for my cells over time..I love the Otter. Works as advertised. So I opened the Z10 Otter Box package the other day and wrapped up the Z10 in it. To my dismay, the high ridges the Otter has around the perimeter of the Z10 almost entirely prevent effective swiping of the screen. Whereas I had been able to change screens with one quick swipe before, it was taking 8-10 tries to make the same thing happen while the Otter was on it. I finally removed it to make certain there wasn't something else causing the problem, but once it was gone, the swiping became almost effortless again. Just saying...you might give it a try before buying.

    Yep. This also was an issue for the PlayBook with certain cases. The bezel needs to be clear with enough room to swipe from the edge.

    What Otterbox case was it?

    Joe, I already tossed the packaging and all it says on the unit itself is "Otter BOX". I do recall that the packaging stipulated it was OTTER BOX for Z10.

    When I saw images of this it appeared at first glance this would be an issue. I think you've just confirmed it.

    Check on the case somewhere to see if it has the model name. It's important to know which one so we aren't assuming. Some of the OtterBox cases may be just fine for the Z10. There are different levels of cases for protection.

    I bought the OB, too, but took it back. Made the device too big and bulky for me. I love my Commuter on my 9700, though. Thinking of trying the Seidio Surface Combo next. Must have a holster of some sort but definitely need fall protection, too, because of my working conditions. I have the OEM leather holster but that's not enough and the Z is too slippery by itself. Love trying new accessories

    I was thinking of trying that BlackBerry flip shell case.. looks like it will add some decent protection and the BlackBerry logo looks nice and sleek in the flip front cover.. plus it's only 30 bucks

    I have one and love it. It does minimize the bezel space by about 50%.
