Case-Mate brings a new take on the tablet shell style by adding a built-in stand feature that is normally reserved for folio cases. The Pop! Case protects the back of the BlackBerry PlayBook with a hard black plastic, while the edges have a rubberized grip. Inside is a lining of impact-absorbing silicon. This keeps the tablet looking slim and sleek while making it more enjoyable to use.

Trying to sort through the array of tablet cases for a simple, unique and useful design can be a difficult task. While many cases offer lots of bells and whistles, most tend to completely cover up the BlackBerry PlayBook. That was until the Pop! Case landed on my desk. Case-Mate has designed another top-notch back protector, but this time it comes with a pop-out stand – a great added bonus that sets this shell apart from the rest.

On the exterior, the Pop! Case combines a hard, black, glossy plastic with rubber grips to provide excellent protection all around (except the display). When the stand is folded in, it remains hidden keeping the tablet smooth across the back. On the interior, the case has a layer of silicon, a very nice touch so it is not just hard plastic on the tablet. The silicon helps absorb any impact if you – gasp – would ever drop your tablet. Pop!’s high-quality materials m
ake the case lightweight and slim, yet durable and protective. In fact, the Pop! Case is an ideal travel partner wherever you’re heading.


  • Simple & sleek design
  • Funky pop-out stand
  • Extra rubber grip on sides

            Overall: GOOD

            Case Mate’s Pop! Case lets you kick back and relax with its unique pop-out stand. Pop!’s sleek pink glossy finish is the perfect compliment to the BlackBerry PlayBook. Plus, the hard protective shell with silicon interior gives good protection on the edges and back along with some extra grip on the sides. Good price for a one-of-a-kind case!
