Smartphones combine the functionality of a cell phone and
that of a PDA. Protecting your investment is quite important

on one of these gadgets.
how many times you've dropped your cell phone getting out
of the car? Or knocked it off a table or couch by accident.
I've done it countless times and sure enough have damaged
or rendered the my phone useless. Cell phones are relatively
cheap now, but how would you feel if this was your expensive
Smartphone? That's where the custom fitted PDair P900/P910i
Aluminum Case proves to be well worth its cost. Made specifically
made for the Sony Ericsson P900/P910i series of phones,
the stylish silver case is manufactured using aircraft

There are many access areas notched all around the case
so you can easily find and adjust controls, grab the stylus
and take photos without having to remove the phone from

included a 360 degree swivel belt clip option. The belt
clip has a quick release mechanism that
was easy to use and made accessing the phone a no-brainer.
The case mounts on the clip at almost any angle and rides
securely. It will maintain a vertical orientation in most
circumstances except when you're sitting in bucket seats
in the car. Unhooking the device is easy—rotate the
case 90 degrees, press the thumb release and lift.
If you're used to carrying around the leather case that
is supplied with your phone, you'll notice that the metal
PDAir unit will add a bit of bulk. It's just something
that you'll have to get used to if you want peace of mind
knowing that you have the best protection.
Pros: Lightweight, strong, stylish. Neoprene lining, easy
swivel belt attachment, great protection value for the
Cons: Aluminum can get cold to the touch especially in
the winter months. Minor additional bulkiness.
Overall a fine superior manufactured product by PDair
that will provide second-to-none protection for your expensive
smartphone. Highly recommended.
