Check it out here (http://www.sonystyle.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/SY_DisplayProductInformation-Start;sid=uQAN600SnMYN43KqDy4H4AICZQgxqo2EBsE=?CategoryName=hp_ClieAccessories_TJSeries&ProductSKU=PEGACA33&Dept=hp)
I like it because it keeps the same look as the original flip cover, which I love, and it also locks into the same place as the flip cover. However it would be nice to get some other perspective shots of it. Has anybody purchased it yet, and can post pics?

I just received the case from Sony Style. Don't have any pics to post right now, but I like the case better than I expected to.
Sony's websites never have enough detailed photos of their products in my opinion, and you would never know how nice this case is until purchasing it. The inside of the case is a grey leather, and the front cover features a nice business card pocket inside. The back cover has two recessed memory stick pockets that point toward the spine of the case (in other words, the slots are sideways, not up and down)--this prevents the cards from slipping out when the case is closed.
My TJ35 locks firmly in place. I've only had the case a few days, so I don't know how well it will work out yet in the long run, but so far I'm impressed...

any more opinions on your case after a week of use? you don't have any pics, do you? I'm especially interested in how thick it is (i.e. does it still easily fit in a pocket) and if there are any other annoyances you've found.
I'm sick of my flip cover falling off...(i even tried a tiny bit of superglue, which worked well for a little while)
It looks attractive in the beginning but I didnt like it for it has a elastic band which holds teh front cover from opening. Which takes away the sleekness of TJ35.
I am a pround user of Brando case which to me is much more practical and better feel.

Actually I'm kinda liking it. Yes sony could have done something for the band, but the built quality, leather quality are good. And best of all you can turn the front cover to the back, just like the original cover which came with TJ.
Not perfect, but not disappointing.

Does it REALLY lock? Or is it just a slide-on like the icky cover that comes with the PEG-TJ35?
Why, oh why, didn't Sony make a lockable cover like my old PEG-615T??? I miss my old cover. :(

This is the worst $40 I have ever spent! Within a week the elastic stretched out on one end and now it is too loose. It doesn't really "lock" in place, it just slides in like the icky cover that originally comes with it. And it has VELCRO! Ewwwee... :eek:
You have to remove it if you use a cradle instead of the cable that came with it.
But the leather is nice... :rolleyes:
I'm on the hunt for a nice flip case like I had on my T665. That was a case that Sony made right! I really liked it and it saved my Clie several times when I dropped it.

Okay, so we don't like the Sony flip case.
Well, I can't recommend the Sony slip case either. On the back it says not to put your PDA into the case without protecting the screen. I guess they put a bunch of sharp scratchy things inside the case.
I mean, what good is a slip case if I have to keep the stupid flip cover on it?
And it looks like all of the other flip cases that weren't specifically designed for the TJ25 are going to cover the power switch, so that's not a good thing. I'd love to find one like I had for my m505 that allowed me to sync with it on and had a swivel belt-clip.
Has anyone found a case they like?
Belkin has one on their web site that is listed as coming soon, but in the picture, it looks like the spring rails that hold the device are covering the on/off switch.
They also state that it "Provides 4 clear-plastic, SD-card pockets". Not a terribly useful feature in a case designed to hold a PDA that uses memory sticks.
The link to the belkin case is here:
I am attempting to attach the picture from their site to this message.

I gave a "test drive" to the Beklin case at Circuit City. It is a very tight squeeze to get it in between the clips and YES the right clip covers completely the ON/OFF switch.
I did not buy it.
