    Took my sister to Best Buy yesterday so she could get a Platinum (Seidio) case from them, and to my shock they were carrying the pearl white cases. All the Platinum cases are the newer style now with the rubberized coating on the inside to prevent scratches and the full length felt on the inside.

    That looks like silver/grey? Unless your laptop is white and its just bad lighting.

    Ah, that makes sense then. I was thinking the laptop had to be silver. Thanks for the heads up on the case. Im going to get a white case of some sort, but dont know which kind yet. I wish the case mate barely there came in more colors.

    offtopic but what laptop is that? Ive never seen white on black and wouldnt mind checking it out.

    Nice. Im on my girlfriends laptop now, and its in the same line (but black). I knew the volume display and speaker grill looked familiar.

    Sorry to get off track, back to the Best Buy case!

    Just as important, it looks like they are finally carrying the improved seidio design with the larger felt pad (and I assume the rubbery texture on the inside?)

    Are you guys sure that all platinum cases have the new design that doesn't scratch.

    Taken with my evo in a low light situation. Pics are only for reference not for review or to be "pretty" so I wasn't gonna waste my time getting out my DSLR


    They seem to be, my sister also bought a purple Platinum case(was the improved design) but returned it for the black case later that day. the black case is also the new design.

    If you opt to get one, open the packaging from the bottom in the store, since it's not sealed there to inspect the case so that you can be sure it's the new design. Or ask the employees to open it for you so that you may check it, the BB employees opened it for me no problem

    Question:

    If the bb Platinum Series are made by Seidio, are they the same thing as the Innocase

    .
    Sure, the newer Innocase II Surface cases are no longer shiney on the inside but the edges are still as sharp. The sucker sliced into my Seidio screen protector and now I have a permanent bubble to remind me it could have been my finger.

    Yes the cases sold at BB are exactly the same, just re-branded into the Platinum series. I originally bought my case (gunmetal grey) at BB and returned it to Seidio for a newer version. Exactly the same except the little logo on the back.

    To make sure the case you are buying is the updated one, make sure that the felt on the inside goes above the camera cutout. The old version does not completely go around the cut out only up the sides. The new version is also also rubberized on the inside. The old ones were shiny plastic with no rubber coating.

    If you want pictures check here and scroll down to the picture of the white cases in the first post: http://androidforums.com/reviews-ev...update2-new-revision-rubberized-interior.html

    I got a 2nd Innocase II from seidio RMA and have had it on my evo for about 2 weeks now.

    Still squeaks and creeks on the bottom part only, really irritates me because this is the 2nd revision and its supposed to prevent this.

    I love my Innocase II. I haven't had any problems with mine. Mine is very well made. I didnt think I would like the seam in the middle of the case, but it doesn't seem to bother me in person.

    I would love the pearl white. Does the white show dirt easily? How much is it at bb? I want pink too now.

    To remove, just press in the center of the bottom half of the case as you pull apart



    My case fits great too, no squeaks or anything. Hasn't shown any dirt yet.... but it's only been like a week and i try to not touch my phone with dirty hands :p

    cost is 24.99 at BB

    To confirm a few things...

    1. Yes, bb does carry the new pearl white.

    2. Yes, it is the redesigned case with felt above camera and rubber inside.

    3. Yes, it is made by seidio under the name of platinum. It is the same as any innocase.

    I just returned from best but with my pearl white case. It was the only one they had left and the color I wanted!

    'What he said.' I can confirm this too.



    and


    4. My pearl white was $24.99 at bb in California. $5 cheaper than seidio.com
