Accessories: DICOTA Sleeve for Nokia N8 (in Pink, Valentine’s gift?)

| February 8, 2012 | 1 Reply

Our first Nokia Accessory that we’re looking at today is the Lov Sleeve, DICOTA. This comes in Nokia colours of Pink and Blue with grey leather trim.  This is to fit the Nokia N8, though it can sort of work for the N9/800 too.

We’ve got the pink one in today, an idea as a valentine’s day gift?

Price: £11.95.



The material is this sort of tweed thing, apparently back in fashion. It looks nice and feels nice too.

When the Nokia N8 is inside, you can’t really see the pink trim that’s inside. It meets the back of the case at the same height as the N8 when it’s inside.

The stitching looks to be very high quality.

The top bit you can see the dicota brand in leather and the pink behind.

Inside it’s all pink (or blue should you have picked that one).

With the 800 inside it’s a little short.

Same with the N9.

But if you’re just after a pouch for screen protecting whilst looking classy in tweed, this does a great job. It’s also easy to pull pout. Just pinch the bottom.


You’ll note that in the above picture, the case is long enough for the 800 but being curved at the bottom means it won’t fit all the way in. To be fair, the case mentions the N8 and not the 800.

Most interesting is that the case kinda grips the inside so it won’t fall out if you turn it upside down, but again, just a quick pinch and it slides the phone out.

Here’s the gallery.

Be sure to check out mobilefun for other mobile phone covers and other accessories such as phone chargers.

Update: Just realised this case had an extra space to slip in maybe a ticket or card?  Maybe not a cash card or anything that might be affected by the phone. Note in the first picture, I accidentally slipped in the foam packing in front of the dicota sign.
