HTC Touch HD Silicon Case (Capdase)

Just got myself a Silicon Case from Capdase. Looks pretty slicky and definitely way better than the pocket type casing which comes bundled with the HD when you first bought the mobile phone.
I still think the pocket type casings are for the ladies. Additional advantage is that you do not need to slide it out from the pocket type casing each time you need to use the phone. Which could be a pain when you need to use the phone quickly at times..

Pictures are definitely the trend nowadays. Here goes..

Now here's the silicon with the phone in it..

Overall, I'm very satisfied with the product and Capdase is quite a known brand in Hong Kong. One downside would be because it is a silicon. As silicon tends to get sticky with dust. Since the colour is black, it would be more obvious but a little wipe with a damp cloth should do the trick. If you notice, the HD has an LED indicator on the ON/OFF button. With the silicon case, the LED would be totally blocked therefore no light visible. I believe that's the design error in the silicon case.
One most important info to share, I got it for a price of RM30.

There aren't many silicon casing available for HD unlike the iPhone. So, I guess this is the best option. I haven't seen any other such casing for the HD. Unless you rather opt for the bulky leather casing.

Mobile Phones Chronology

Personally, I've tried quite a number of mobile phones before.. Probably the chronology are as below:
Mobile phones from:
  • minimum GUI to a full OS Window Mobile 6.1
  • T9 keypad -> qwerty keyboard -> touch screen
  • screen size from less than 2" to a staggering 3.8"
  • 2G -> 2.5G -> 3G -> 3.5G
Mobile phone industries had evolved from normal communication tool to a full featured multimedia must-have communication device in such century.

In the year 2005, the world mobile user was 2.1 billion and in Malaysia alone, it was quoted to be 19.5 million.

That was in 2005. Imagine what would the number be in such year of 2009 and of course with the hype of the iPhone which shakes the mobile phone industries since last year.
