With it selling as hot as it is, there will be one.


You've got to remember the customer service people and public relations interns they have working their social media site are just reading off a script.

They probably don't know anything about what's going on behind the scenes.

Those are more like carry cases for carting an N4 in rough conditions. We need something like the Commuter or Defender series cases where you can protect the phone and use it.

"We do pass on the request to the R&D team but the social team isn't privy to the decision making process."

That is what they said about the phone on facebook.

Its a pain to actually yet hold of anyone with knowledge in a big company anymore.
