Editorial Most of us here like gadgets. Things with displays, LEDs, or stuff that otherwise lights up in the dark and makes cool noises. There is this one gadget I had been waiting for to come out in The Netherlands for quite a while now, but at some point a limit was reached, and today I decided to do a complete 180 and buy a competing product.

I haven't had a cell phone in few years, but back when I did I stuck with a few nokia models like the 252 and 3205i. Not fancy phones by any means, but solid. I can't tell you how many times I've dropped the various phones over the years. So I'm curious as to how solid these new phones are. Given that phones are now becoming serious platforms for software with greatly expanded hardware capabilities, I've been thinking about them more and more...

My first purchase for any similar device has been a good case for it. My T5 had a great attached case that closed around it and paid for itself within the first week when it went face down on the subway platform.

I'd really like to see Innopocket (think that's who made my old aluminium case) do a case for the N900 but they ignored the N800/N810 so I'm not getting my hopes up.

Both my N8x0 have taken a drop with little effect other than some case scratches. Not sure how the other current blocks of plastic hold up.
