I would most likely pay something on the order of 40$ for a rectangular, no 
holes, sturdy case. If the finish is done in a nice way. Ideally, it would be 
all black, slightly rubberish feeling plastic (some Nokia phones have this, 
not sure just how resilient it is though) and for the most important point: 
INCLUDE A PLACE TO STORE A SMALL STYLUS (the one on the P900 is about 1,5mm 
wide, that's plenty, it just needs to live in the phone)!
