Nokia Silicone Cover CC-1005 Review | For The Nokia N8

If you’ve managed to get your hands on the new Nokia N8, you would have instantaneously noticed that although its matte aluminium finish looks exquisite, it is quite slippery in the hands, and the last thing you’d want to do is drop it. Well, unlike in the past, Nokia has created a very cool custom silicone cover for the N8, instead of some belt clip case or a glorified sock to ‘protect it’. The Nokia Silicone Cover CC-1005 is a must have accessory for your Nokia N8 and we highly recommend you to get one. Hit the jump to find out more.

The Nokia Silicone Cover CC-1005 comes in four different colours: black, blue, green and pink, which compliment the different colours of the Nokia N8 perfectly. If you’re a bit of a trend setter than you can also try a different coloured case other than the colour of your N8, which creates a pretty funky look with some combinations.

The silicone case is pretty flexible yet has a rugged feel to it. You’d have to twist and stretch it a lot to get it to tear. The case allows easy access to all the buttons and ports on the handset without obscuring any parts of the device. But aside from all this, the one thing I really love about the cover is the fact that it doesn’t take over the Nokia N8. Most silicone cases like this add unnecessary bulk to a handset, which kind of defeats the object, especially when the device is praised for its slim form factor.

The Nokia Silicone Cover CC-1005 for the Nokia N8 is available from the Nokia store for £18.00 GBP, which is a pretty hefty price to pay for a cover. I’d personally recommend popping over to our good friends over at MobileFun, who are currently selling the Nokia Silicone Cover CC-1005 for £9.95 GBP and should have it available in all the colours pretty soon.
