    Psst... I'm about to share a little secret from yours truly. There are a few websites out there that specialize in custom BlackBerry phone cases, but none like these. I know of one that decks BlackBerry cases out in an extravagant way, and get this, they're hand made and 100% customizable. Think "Pimp My Ride" except instead of a car it could be your phone. If you're a girl that likes to accessorize or a flamboyant kind of guy, just check these out. You won't be disappointed.

    They're gaudy, over the top, and that's why they're for the bold, wild and adventurous, and maybe even a little bit crazy! For those of you who fit the latter or know a BlackBerry addict that does, they might just be perfect!

    LuxAddiction hosts over 100 hundred different styles so if these don't tickle your fancy, there's sure to be something that will.

    You've got the idea by now. I've owned 2 cases, and I was quite satisfied overall, but:

    Cons:
    • The cases are expensive. However, it's relative compared to other swarovski cases that are sometimes $200 or more. With that in mind, these are a great price considering the customization and uniqueness.
    • I only had problems with the small swarovski crystals.
    • It takes about 3-5 weeks to receive your hand-designed phone case (Think about it, they're hand made with tons of one of a kind, unique details.)
    • My first order took 5 weeks from order to delivery, my second order (review unit) took 3 weeks exactly.

    Pros:
    • LuxAddiction makes these cases from swarovski crystals & other unique gems, beads, ornaments, etc,.
    • The phone cases are surprisingly durable. I dropped mine and nothing came off.
    • The company provides extra gems in case a few of yours fall off (From personal experience, I've only had 3 come off and I used my case daily).
    • The cases are unique and completely customizable.
    • LuxAddiction has good customer service via telephone, e-mail, or webchat. I recommend webchat over the telephone.
    • If your phone model is not listed, you can still request one to be made as they will order the case that fits your phone and design.

    If you are a fan of the BlackBerry charging pods like I am, you are going to love this. The charging pod holds the PlayBook at a slight angle just as the handheld pods do for BlackBerry handsets. This would be ideal as a nightstand PlayBook or as a dock while you are busy multi-tasking on the PlayBook.

    RIM brought some of their upcoming accessories for the PlayBook to this year's CES in Las Vegas. Styles include the BlackBerry Neoprene Sleeve, BlackBerry BookBinder, BlackBerry Zip Sleeve, BlackBerry Envelope case and BlackBerry Hard Shell case. For all those hoping to pick up the PlayBook at launch, accessorizing will not be an issue.

    I had a chance to test out the CaseMate Hybrid Tough case for my 9650 and I figured I would write up my experiences. What separates these cases from most BlackBerry cases is that it comes in two pieces: a soft silicon shell which is wrapped by a harder ABS plastic skin. Overall I thought the case was great in some respects but it really fell short of my overall expectations.

    Last week I was browsing our BBOS store for a new Bluetooth Headset when I came across the Motorola Endeavor HX1. It's really amazing that this headset has been out on the market for over a year now, and still sits at the top of it's class. I've never been a big time bluetooth headset user, but figured I was in need of one after always finding myself having to pull over the car to answer a call. I needed a comfortable headset so that I could drive while talking, and not have to worry about endangering other drivers on the road...
