Default What kind of case??

So I'm sure like the rest of you the closer it gets to the "end of July" the more excited we are getting... I know this might be premature but what kind of cases do you think you will go with? I would love it if otterbox were to make a case but I can't imagine how big that would make the phone. I cant figure out if that wallet style or a sleeve or one of those silicon wrap around things would be best since idealy i would still like the phone to fit in my pocket. If it cant its not the end of the world I just know at like concerts and ball games and stuff where you get bumped into alot its easy for a phone to get knocked off and you not notice until its way to late for it to do anything, had this happen to me with my first gen iphone 3 weeks after they came out: it sucked. I know there arent a lot of accessories out yet so this might be premature but I'm curious what other people are thinking

I would go with a sleeve type case, if available and it doesn't make it too big to fit in the pocket. If it does, then I would probably just go "naked" as I am not wearing it on a belt. I have never had one of the "wraps", not sure if that rubber form would make it too sticky to slide in and out of a pocket, even if it didn't add too much bulk.

Got another month to watch for accessories, but first got to get the phone

i know but its like buying a car your really excited about the car but the tint, rims, stereo can make or break it. especially sense im going to buy mine from dell if i spend that much i want to make sure the phones gonna be protected since i cant gurantee im never going to drop the damn thing. im thinking sleeve also but i hate having to take the phone out take it out of the sleeve and hold onto the sleeve while im on the call or texting which makes it even worse. now if they made something like they did for blackberries that holds the phone securely that would be awesome as long as it was held on by more then that flimsy clip

Awesome thanks I really like the idea of the wallet case I just wish it had more slots to keep cards in so I could really use it as a wallet
