With a genuine leather exterior, chrome inset logo, and elastic closure, the blackberry journal case gets full marks for both style and convenience. A soft microfiber lining with a customized shell holds your blackberry playbook tablet in place while you're using it, and with external access to the micro-USB and media ports, keys, and camera, you can take full advantage of everything it has to offer.

Customer Reviews

This case is from "must-have" category for BlackBerry PlayBook.
Frozen Penguin
The only thing that could be better would be a pre-cut hole in the side of the cover for the power cord to access the port to charge while closed.
Freshcatch
This is a very nice quality and fits the Playbook perfectly with a snug fit.

I bought this case because I really enjoy the function of my Kindle case and this looked to be a similar solution for my Playbook. I've been using the case four days and for the most part I am satisfied with it.

Some Dislikes:

The Playbook is a bit awkward to hold with the cover flipped back in its normal landscape orientation. The excess material from the spine just seems to get in the way. I find myself preferring to rotate it 180 degrees with the camera on the bottom. This is not an issue for most of the applications since they can usually run in any orientation. The same thing holds true if you want to lay the device flat on a table or desk since in the normal orientation the device tilts away from you.

If you are unhappy with the power button, this case unfortunately makes this situation worse. I even find the volume rocker a little harder to use. Each of them does have a sweet spot and once you find it they are usable. I'm just disappointed that RIM couldn't have improved the whole button issue with this case.

The elastic strap seems a little weak and could have been more robust (more like the Kindle cover). It also doesn't match the pictures I saw on RIM's website which show metal grommets and a round elastic strap. It may hold up just fine but definitely an area of concern.

What I Like:

The journal case fits the Playbook like a glove. The rubberized shell holds the device very secure and offers very good protection. My primary reason for wanting this particular case was my 10 year old bounces around the house while using my Playbook. With this case the likelihood that a drop will damage it is significantly reduced.

This is a well built case and designed to fit the playbook snug and secure. It protects the screen and looks sharp doing it's job.

BUT! the reason I give it only 3 stars is...

The case is built upside down! You have to leave the case open to charge the device. The buttons are on the outside of the case presumably so you can listen to music and operate the volume controls. but if you are holding the device in the normal way, the cover folds under instead of over. It may seem like a minor complaint, but it is very annoying.

As much as I love the PlayBook "as-is", I have a 10 year old and a 3 year old who love to play with it. I knew that I had to have some sort of protection. My original purchase was a CaseMate Pop Case, which worked really well. However, when I'm carrying it in my bag, there's no real protection for the screen...and honestly, the plastic just made it look cheap.

This case solves those issues. It protects the PlayBook from little boys who like to play games on it. It closes up so the screen has protection in my bag. The leather cover makes this look so professional - and much less obvious when I'm carrying it. It adds very little to the size/weight of the PlayBook, which is a plus as well.

There are a couple of downsides. I do wish it could hold my stylus somewhere. You also have to get used to the way you will hold it with the cover folded back...it seems "backwards". The volume buttons take a little extra push to work. You can't keep it closed and plug in the charge cable (again, feels backwards...if they'd only set it so you put the PB in the other way...). To me though, the benefits outweigh these - and if I were in a situation where these things were higher priority, I'd just pull out my Pop Case, or take it out of a case entirely.

All in all, worth the money I spent!

Very good, solid quality. Nice leather. Good protection. Fits very well. On/Off- and volume-buttons are a bit tricky to operate but still OK.

I purchased this cover to replace the default case that came my wife's Playbook. The moleskine design reference is fantastic as are the materials and workmanship. The tablet fits in nicely and is easy to operate and well protected while in the case.

I expected quality but my expectations were EXCEEDED. I didn't want one of those 'pleather' cases that looks like leather or one that 'almost' fits perfectly. You can take pics without removing the playbook. In fact there's no function that cannot be performed in the cover. This is a quality cover and if you're giving it as a gift the packaging is fit for a king. No kidding. Not important to me but it was packaged like a $500 gift from Tiffanys. I saw some complaints about having to charge with the cover open. You gotta be kidding me. The playbook charges in an hour and holds a charge for several days. I would have preferred brown though and it was N/A. The playbook is AWESOME too. Had an Ipad, for about a week and returned it. No comparison. The HD video playback is unbelievable.

Imagine yourself amongst all those iPad users with their flimsy plastic 'smartcovers' wagging as they try to figure out how to hold it comfortably while playing Angry Birds and you pull out your Playbook covered in this. Woah, what is it? So elegant and sophisticated looking. Like an expensive leather bound tome with the Blackberry emblem in shiny silver on the cover. Is it a manual for how to make secure communication of messages over a wireless networks reliably? A slip of he elastic strap and you open it and inside is the gleam of the clean, undamaged glass of a sophisticated tablet ready to go to work.

A great case for your Playbook. The back of the case holds the tablet securely in use and, when using it in Portrait orientation its exactly like holding a book complete with open cover. So if you use a tablet as an ereader, this gives you the feel of holding a nice hardcover book. An elastic strap holds the cover over the front of the tablet when not in use protecting it from damage and dirt. The one downside to this case is also a result of a tradeoff based on how the tablet was designed. Since the volume and power buttons are on the side opposite the USB and HDMI ports, it was a choice of them which to have always available and which would be covered by the spine. Since they chose the keys, in order to charge the tablet you have to keep the case open. This keeps the volume and power keys always in reach even when the case is closed. These buttons aren't accessed through holes in the side of the case but instead the case includes extended buttons that you press and press the buttons on the Playbook itself.

Then, see how they look back at their iPads, heads filled with the question 'why cant we have nice things like that' as you flip the cover closed.
