While there are a few cases on the market sized for the new HTC Touch Pro 2/Tilt 2, the selection is thin. We took a look at some of the cases in the WMExperts Store that are large enough for the Touch Pro 2 and came up with four recommendations that might hold you over until other cases hit the shelves.
Follow the break to see what we've come up with.
We started with cases for the AT&T Fuze and original Tilt. Some simply were too tight (e.g. Sena Vertical Pouch) or the flap not large enough to securely seat the larger HTC phone (e.g. Body Glove Landmark) inside. Here are the four cases we found to fit the Tilt 2 the best and, as close as they are in size, should fit the other Touch Pro 2 models.
Prima Lateral Pouch
The Prima Lateral Pouch the Tilt 2 like a glove. The case is well-built and has a large flap to hold the Touch Pro 2 or Tilt 2 securely in place. We reviewed the Prima case some time ago with the Fuze and came to the same conclusion in using this case with the Tilt 2. The biggest drawback rests with the belt hook in that it rises considerably above the case and makes the case ride a little uncomfortably on the belt.
Smartphone Experts P7 Side Pouch
When we first took a look at the Smartphone Experts P7 Side Pouch with the AT&T Fuze, we noted a little wiggle room in the case. This wiggle room allowed the Tilt 2 to fit into the case nicely. Two concerns come to mind in using the P7 with the Touch Pro 2 models. First, as we noted in the P7's review the case doesn't have any padding to it, which may be a concern to some. Second, the flap is a little on the narrow side, exposing a considerable amount of the Tilt 2's corners.
The case has a narrower feel to it than the other cases I've tried and with weather getting cooler and jackets becoming more popular, the lack of padding and exposed corners may not be that big an issue. The slender profile this case offers allows it to ride beneath a jacket without creating too much bulk.
Golla makes an interesting case that's large enough to accommodate the Touch Pro 2. The Golla Cases come in an assortment of styles, colors and fabrics that range from the conservative black to the colorful floral patterns. The only drawback may be that these cases have belt loops as opposed to belt hooks. We've reviewed the Golla case line before and found them to be quality cases but not necessarily suited for everyone's tastes.
Smartphone Experts Side Pouch
As with the SPE P7, the Smartphone Experts Side Pouch for the AT&T Fuze has just enough wiggle room to accommodate the larger Touch Pro 2 models. We've taken a look at this case with the BlackJack II and found it to be well constructed comfortable case. The flap is large enough to keep the Tilt 2 securely in place and the sides of the case protects the edges of the Windows phone nicely.
I'm sure there are other cases that will accommodate the Touch Pro 2 models and as new cases hit the market, we will try to offer up as many reviews as possible.
