Okay… pix of the blue one can be emailed to anybody who wants them, just drop me a line bkaupp-at-ugconnection.com
As far as the belt clip is concerned, it seems very strong, but with a cell phone on one side and a Palm Tungsten on the other, there’s not much space left on this dork for another digital toy. I do plan on modifying the clip for my aforementioned car install, tho.
Lastly, I admit the latching could be better, but I haven’t had any problem with it yet. again, email me and I’ll include detail pix of that part. Also look for my fulll review coming soon on the forums

its flat except for a round hole(you can see it in the pics above) and a small bump farther down. I assume that these are for the belt clip
