    I saw a royal blue silicone skin case today at Best Buy. It was HTC branded, not aftermarket. I opened the package and checked it out and it was very nice. It was made of a very smooth silicone on the back but it was a bit thicker and firmer than I was used to. I compared it to the Rocketfish silicone case and it was MUCH thicker with a lot firmer body overall. What's odd is that Best Buy didn't have this case on their site and they only had it in the royal blue color, I wanted black. I checked a Sprint store and that black silicone case they sell is different, a lot less firm than the Best Buy silicone case.

    Has anyone seen or purchased this case? I can't even find it on HTC's site that they linked to on the back of the package it was in!

    I haven't seen it, but judging from your description, it sounds like it might be a TPU case instead of silicon.

    It's definitely not TPU. They had a TPU case at Best Buy too and this is nowhere as firm or thick as that. It's just a lot firmer than most silicone skins I have felt and quite a bit more than the Rocketfish one I was comparing it to.

    It's easy to spot because it's the only EVO case in genuine HTC packaging which is a clear plastic package with a white cardboard hanger. Well at least it's something like that, my memory is a bit hazy right now, I just remember it being white.

    Yeah, I just went over there and saw it. It is silicon, just seems to be a bit thicker and seems sturdier than the super thin RocketFish branded ones.

    *EDIT* They only had the blue one at this store as well.

    Just to follow up on this, Radio Shack is now carrying this case in black.

    Hmmm again..LOL

    The one I saw at my RS was like the 2 piece HTC cases that Sprint is selling. Only it is just the one Black/Grey one.

    Yeah I saw that one too, but this one was the exact same silicone case I saw at Best Buy but in black.

    I'm going on a vague memory here, but I think it was $14.99-possibly $19.99.
