Default otterbox for inspire

i have been going from spec sheet from the desire hd to the inspire... from my findings it may look like the otterbox defender to the htc desire hd may fit the htc inspire.
they both use the same metal shell...
does anyone have any input to this?

Somewhere in this forum someone posted a spec sheet of the two phones side by side. There's a slight difference somewhere, don't remember if it's width or depth... but there's a slight difference.

I posted in another thread that I asked Otterbox if it would fit, they said that it would not. They did not give any other info though...

I'm no engineer, but it looks .02 mm thicker. I verified with seidio.com that their products labeled Inspire will work perfectly. Otterbox does not. It depends on manufacturing and form-fit

Could probably put a few strips of electrical tape inside the back of the otterbox to fill in those .02mm and it would fit perfectly.

The difference (according to those number which I think is just a difference in rounding) is .2mm, not .02mm. .2mm is about the thickness of a single layer of electrical tape, but I still believe they are exactly the same on the outside.

I'd trust otterbox. They will have the proper case out in a short time, at least that's the response I got from them.

OtterBox As Per Their facebook Fan page.

Well, I stand corrected by one of our amazing Development Otters: the HTC Inspire has the same form factor as the HTC Desire HD... so we already have a solution for you, John! Here's a link http://www.otterbox.com/desire-hd-cases/desire-hd-...cases,default,sc.html.
Woot!See More

I've been using Otterbox when out hiking, mountaing biking, & during other rugged outdoor activities. They're the best. Worth every penny & their ugly looks. LOL.

Just a note:

AT&T will be getting the Case mate "tough case" which is almost identical to the otter box commuter (rubber insert, abs shell) its worth taking a look at!

I never heard of otterbox until this thread. I saw the links... it's not a bad lookin case. I'm assuming the primary selling point of this case is that it's 'tuff as nails'?

i work construction everyday. i don't let my profession define what my cellular phone will be. i use my phone for daily orders, using builders apps, and even talk n surf. this phone will definitely increase my productivity. otterbox is tough, and the customer support is freaking fabulous. i only bought 1 case and the have sent 2 replacements ( just because they wore out)

I am an Auto Tech so it is in a harsh environment and I tend to drop it regularly , My Iphone 3GS has been in one for the last 18month's and when I took it out today to swap out the sim card there was no marks on the screen and only minor scuffing on the back, Very impressed.
Just ordered a desire HD one off ebay today for my inspire.
I think I can keep it clean till it arrives

I noticed this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLgjbmS_sJA

And saw that the case was for the Desire HD, and the guy said that the case is perfect. Still doesn't say anything 100% about how the Otterbox cases will work, but I guess its something to go by in terms of compatibility...

Got the otterbox for the HD and a car charger on ebay, it fits perfectly and did not add as much bulk as I had thought, device looks really good in it.

I posted the spec sheet. AndreaCristiano and a few other guys said that it was just supposed to be rounded up. It wouldn't make sense to have different mm measurements when the others are exact copies.

I have the HTC Inspire and the i can gurantee u that the otterbox defender series for the HTC Desire HD WILL fit with no fuctionality problems. Its all a marketing scheme i think. Everyone has figured it out, that why its almost impossible to find one right now, anywhere!!!

Amazon has the real otterbox cases. I have purchased several otterboxes for other phones from amazon as well they were all real not fake. Of course ebay is the one to look out for but if the case costs the same on eBay as it does on amazon I would just get it from amazon for $30.
I have never seen a defender case on amazon advertised as $10. And the super cheap ones on eBay will say "like otterbox" in the description which of course means fake.
Why you pushing ohcases so much, you work for them? I looked at that site when I first wanted an otterbox for my inspire also needed defenders for some evos, said they were out of stock for both when I emailed them about the cases and when they might be getting some in I never got a reply, I waited a lil over a week then said forget it and purchased from amazon. Why would I do business with a company that can't even answer a presale question? Also this was a few weeks ago now and still no response to my email.

My husband even ripped the rubber plug piece of one of his iPhone defender covers and he called otterbox answered a few questions and they replaced the rubber portion of the cover. Don't think they would do this if amazon is pushing fakes.

If you get the Defender Case for less than 30 dollars with the shipping including just forget about it, thats not a real otterbox.
So if ohcases decided to offer free shipping guess their otterboxes would be fake then huh? Since they have defender for $26.95.

Amazon gives free shipping on orders over $25 so my $30 ($28.99 to be exact) otterbox would qualify for free shipping. Plus its ordering it from Amazon not a 3rd party seller on amazon. The price for the case is pretty much the same on amazon and ohcases but free shipping and no tax (shipped to TX) on amazon makes it a better deal but in total not by much. I ordered 2 evo defenders and 2 inspire defenders ($115.79) had I ordered from ohcases it would of only cost $0.83 more but again they never answered an email and i waited over a week to see if they could tell me when this cases i wanted would be back in stock, so why would I want to give them $116?

Ebay you are more likely to buy fake anything now, especially if it says bulk packaging not in retail box. But there are some online retailers that look to expensive their stores to ebay because a lot of people try ebay first to see what they can find. It's all about reading the entire auction and asking questions.

And no where in that link you provided did otterbox say amazon themselves were selling knockoffs

Just curious if anybody had any problems with the screen protector on their otterboxes?

I had one for my 3GS and I loved the case, but couldn't stand the screen protector. It never ever sat right, and even if I could eliminate all of the bubbles (darn near impossible) it would fog up like that was it job.

So I was curious if the screen protector was the same or if they'd improved it since then.

Default Otterbox for Desire/Inspire

Here is the definitive answer: Printed on the box for the Defender Series. *HTC Desire HD & Inspire 4G*
It fits my Inspire like a glove. Fits on my belt and in my pocket. Just rubbery enough not to slide off the table/counter/sink into danger. Not rubbery enought to fight you on the way out of your pocket. Ergo - the perfect solution for me.
