Proporta Case for Nokia N800
It's a beautiful thing, the N800, but without a case to put it in it's pretty hard to carry it around. The screen is delicate and easily scratched or smashed. And the grey sock that Nokia provide as a cover is a complete joke.
There are lots of cases available, but here's a particularly good one - the Proporta Alu-Leather case.
The best thing about it is the flap that covers the N800's screen. The whole case is made of nice matt-black leather, but the screen cover has a ruddy great sheet of aluminium sandwiched between two layers of the cow-hide. This means you can chuck your N800 in your bag, jacket pocket, Scott eVest or wherever, secure in the knowledge that even if you or a fat friend sits on your N800 it won't get squashed.
Which has got to be worth the $34.95 / £26.95 that Proporta want for it. OK, it's not cheap, but it's leather, it looks nice, and it works. Function AND form. What more can you ask for?
