Seidio Shield 2 Holster for Treo 650/700
Remember last winter, when you dropped your Treo 650 on the ground and the SD card popped out and got lost in the snow? Oh, wait ... that wasn’t you, that was me. Sorry. Well, neither of us have to worry about that any more. Seidio was kind enough to develop a Treo 650/700 holster called the Shield 2, which allows easy insertion and removal of the Treo while protecting the inward-facing screen with foam. Most importantly, the clip slips right over the top of the memory card to keep that little bugger in there when you—er, I—drop it while getting out of the car.
At $29.95, the Seidio Shield 2 holster is a little more expensive than its predecessor, but the revised design features make it worth the few extra dollars. Aside from the SD slot, all other buttons and connectors are available while the device is in the holster. One minor complaint is that the spring clip covers the top-mounted ringer switch and IR port. The IR port is not a concern; the device would be out of the holster when using that anyway. But some people might find the inaccessible switch to be a problem. Or, like me, they might be willing to overlook that in favor of extra security for the SD card.
