Hands-on with the Seidio Innocase II Surface for the HTC ThunderBolt

I like to place some kind of skin case on my devices to protect them and keep them in great condition. I recently found I was extremely grateful for the Innocase II Surface when my ThunderBolt fell 3 feet onto concrete and survived unscathed.

The Innocase II Surface comes in a simple plastic box to keep it safe during transit.

Make sure to check out my review of the case and story of the fall on my ZDNet Smartphones & Cell Phones blog.

The front of the case without my device inserted shows the openings and black felt lining.

The back shows the openings and seam where the two pieces come together securely.

After pulling the case out of the package you then separate the two pieces so you can insert the ThunderBolt.

Now that the ThunderBolt is in the case you can see there are openings for everything so you do not compromise any functionality.

As you can see the large kickstand full extends in the case.

The kickstand props up the ThunderBolt, even with the Innocase II Surface case placed on the device.

The Innocase II Surface adds very little to the ThunderBolt bulk.

Here you can see the opening for the microUSB port and kickstand.
