The keypad lines up directly over the buttons on the phone, giving you full access to all of the buttons on the Treo. I did run into a slight issue here, however. With my Treo 700p, the green "call" button and the red "end call" buttons were not properly labeled. For the 700p and 700w, the correct placement for these icons would be on the horizontal buttons directly above their current placement. The reason for this is that the OtterBox seems more designed towards the Treo 650. This is not a major issue, but worth mentioning.
The upper portion of the OtterBox uses a flip-up screen cover, which offers plenty of protection from the elements. Under the flip-up cover is a clear plastic membrane that still gives the user full access to the touch screen while keeping out dirt, water and other debris.
Directly above the flip-up screen is the speaker hole.
