BlackBerry Mobile Shows Off Privacy FlipCase For Motion

BlackBerry Mobile has come out with what I think is a very interesting idea. It’s a see through 60 degree angle view front on a new flip style case. It is called (unsurprisingly) the Privacy Flipcase.

How does the Flipcase work?

Now I’m not sure yet if this has been done before, but I’ll check. The idea is that the BlackBerry Motion is still usable even when the front of the case is closed. You can see through it, and still interact with your device. In addition, the screen visibility is reduced to a 60 degree angle in order to keep those prying eyes sitting next to you from viewing your workflow.

BlackBerry Mobile explains it this way:

  • Keep privacy protected with limited 60° horizontal viewing angle.
  • Full screen display with full touch functionality, enables you to operate with cover closed.
  • Full coverage design for improved protection.
  • Free your wallet with built-in card slot on the back.
  • Exquisite detail delivers superior quality and tactile sensation.

This case is labelled as “Coming soon” on the website here Motion accessories

There are two other accessories available as well, a nice looking Hard Shell case, along with a screen protector that looks to have the privacy function built-in too!

I’m looking forward to this case when I pick up a new BlackBerry Motion! What do you think of this idea? Sound off!
