iSkin has been known to design some really nice iPhone cases, but now they’ve expanded their lineup by introducing cases for BlackBerry. iSkin has introduced the Vibe series for the BlackBerry Bold, Curve 8900, and Storm. Unfortunately no love for the BlackBerry Tour 9630 or Curve 8520 just yet. We’ve been checking out these cases for the past few weeks and so far we’re very impressed! They fit like a glove, and are designed to protect for sure. Included in the packaging is both the skin and a mirrored screen protector for maximum protection and privacy.
Not only do the iSkin’s come in various colors, the Vibe FX skins come engraved with a subtle argyle patterns and look awesome! At this time the Vibe FX skins are only available for the Curve 8900. Now we did mention the Vibe skins are currently available for the BlackBerry Bold and Storm, and hopefully launching for the BlackBerry Tour soon. You can check out some shots of the Bold and Storm cases below. The Vibe and Vibe FX skins are now available in The BlackBerry Sync Store (Vibe FX caes here).

Conclusion: iSkin has always known to make some of the best cases for the iPhone, and now the introduction of their latest lineup for BlackBerry looks great. These cases are pretty sweet, look great and create solid protection. The price isn’t as cheap as some skins, however you seem to get a much more stylish case. The only thing we noticed with all three of these cases is the lining up with certain ports, such as charger or headphones isn’t 100% bang on. Just something minor and they do work without lining up. The Vibe cases on both the BlackBerry Curve 8900 and Storm fit well, but the buttons on top of the device (for lock and mute) are fairly difficult to press.
Pros: Stylish, tons of great colors, mirror screen protector included
Cons: Mid-Range pricing ($30+), ports don’t always line up, top keys for mute/lock aren’t easy to press
