Now that thousands of us have our hands on the much anticipated BlackBerry Z10, it’s time to get in to the business of properly protecting and accessorizing them. Take a moment to check out the Zebrawood case from Case-Mate’s Crafted Wood Collection for a classy looking option that you’re sure to love.

The Zebrawood case is nothing if not sharp looking; I’ve been using it for a few days and everyone has commented on how sleek it looks on my Z10. The case itself has a silver plastic edge  that has a metallic look to it, and a back side made from natural wood materials. The contrast of metallic and wood makes the case and your phone a very modern looking device to be carrying around.

The case consists of two pieces, a thin back with a rubber-like material that adds a little bit of cushion should your phone slip out of your hands, and a top portion that covers the rest of the phone. On the top piece, there are slots cut out so you can have easy access to your camera, volume rockers, charging/HDMI ports, and the speaker on the bottom.

Overall, the Zebrawood case is a great looking carrying solution that adds a certain level of sophistication to your phone. I only had two small issues with the case; the volume rockers are a little hard to get to because of the thickness of the top piece of the case, and the metallic looking plastic is just that, plastic. It give the case a slightly cheap feel to it, which is ironic because the case costs $80.

You can purchase the Zebrawood case, and many other great looking cases, from Case-Mate’s website.

 

 

Chris Esparza has been a member of #TeamBlackBerry since 2008 when he walked in to a T-Mobile store ready to buy a new phone after his old Samsung suffered some water damage. He had his eyes on another Samsung, but unfortunately, it was out of his budget. He went with the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 instead, because it was the cheaper option. It's probably the best impulse buy he has ever made, as BlackBerry changed his outlook on all things tech related and ignited a strong passion for the mobile industry. Since that 8100, he has owned only four different BlackBerry smart phones, including the Z10, which he received the day it was announced, as a perk for being a member of BlackBerry Elite. Chris loves meeting members of Team BlackBerry and will gladly add you to BBM if you request him. PIN: 2668C47E
