    The price of these cases will be $60 with a $2 charge for paypal fee's. This means the total is $62.

    To many of you, this price is nothing, however to some they will be furious at the price.

    This is what you need to consider:
    Your phone is an expensive phone to begin with, do you really not want an EXCELLENT product to protect its backside? Also we are very flexible and will work our best to provide you with a case that will disable the slide out keyboard so you all will be 100% satisfied.

    Price breakdown:
    Carbon fiber is an expensive raw material and for any of you who have worked with it before, you know how much of a PITA (pain in the ...) it is to make GREAT quality products with it.

    You all will have a choice of these colors:
    Black, Red, Orange, Blue, Yellow.

    There is no different price allocated to any specific color. This is a solid 60 with the 2$ to cover paypal fee's.

    This is something you all should consider as you would be the first users to have this REAL carbon fiber case. Do your research and find similar products at a higher price with less quality.

    Also we are using the 2x2 Carbon fiber instead of the 1x2 weave that other cases like to use. This means our product is a better quality, and the overall appearance is much more appealing.

    The product is lightweight but will protect your phone, you will not even realize its on the phone half of the time!

    If there are any trust issues concerning this, you can always File a complaint with paypal on me, or you may contact my producer (Only for SERIOUS buyers). My location is in Illinois and the producer is California so know this is not a bunch of kids looking to scam anyone. We are honest and will provide you with a product to meet your needs.

    You can PM me if you want my paypal account to send payments to.

    Currently I have 6 users paid on another droid forum. To view the thread please visit this link: My post starts on page 6 Post #55 and questions and other pictures are posted throughout the thread.

    Case with No Slide Out Keyboard Feature - Page 6 - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    If you are interested in this please feel free to message me for my paypal address. Also if you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Here are some example pictures of our case for the G1 phone:

    These ones are still wet, but you can still see the colors :

    No the case will not cover the speaker, that case shown is for the G1. All the cutouts for the droid will be made appropriately.

    Lets see some pics with a Droid in it and you might have a buyer. I don't use the KB at all.

    62 is a bit high but i paid 30 for the Body Glove. Maybe i could sell it for 10-15 to offset the price.

    Money Back Guarantee? Just asking?

    Yes, this case is for that purpose. We will also be making a regular case for users who want to be able to slide the keyboard out, but more details on that are still to come.

    We are not starting this project until we get 10 paid serious buyers. We have had way to many projects cost us money because people are so interested in it, but they have no intention of actually buying the product.

    Currently I have 6 paid users with 2 telling me they want one, so i'm just waiting on their payments and then willl need 2 more, however I have 1 more person on the other forum saying if we are 1 buyer short he will go in on the first batch.

    For the price, I don't think it is high at all. Your phone retails at $500, so does the price even matter to protect your phone? Also this is carbon fiber we are talking about, an expensive material and also a PITA to work with.

    As for refunds/returns; If the product doesn't fit then we send you one that does.

    I am reading the other forum now. I should have looked first before asking the questions. I am going to take the wait and see approach. This time around i will be a follower and not a leader. You got a web site i can bookmark? (if not you need one)

    Thanks and i think what you have so far looks great!

    Thanks for helping out. As for a website, our business is still in its baby stages. Our website developer actually just had his harddrive go haywire, and so that stopped it for two weeks. He has an external one at the moment so we are working on it. I'll keep you all updated with the details of course as things fall in place.

    I dont think we plan on making a 2 piece case ever unfortunately.


    Update: I have 9 users paid on the Carbon fiber case, so there is 1 spot left, but that will go very quick.

    We are making cases with carbon fiber, it is not a material that would be realistic for something like that. Maybe sometime in the future we would be able to make something like that, however we're focusing on one piece cases right now.

    I see you are 1 away from the preorder fulfillment. Do you plan on making more after these 10? Do you have an expected turnaround for the 10 you are preordering and/or the next order you will be doing?

    Thanks!

    Hey, thank you for the questions Darth_Penguin. Yes we plan on making more after these 10. The expected turn around for the first 10 users is going to be about 1 month. It may be a bit longer, or it may even be a bit shorter. But it will approx. be 1 month. :) After the first batch is made the turn around for the all the next cases is going to be much quicker. The first batch is just the first trial, so its basically based off of how long it takes us to get a perfect case out there, we make sure our product represents us in a respectable manner.

    i'd love to see what they look like finished, i may be interested in one!

    and I 100% understand the difficulty working with CF... I made a Full carbon fiber custom intake box for my TL Type-S... it was such a huge PITA, but came out great with a lot of time and patience!

    Haha that looks real nice blue. I see you on the other forum as well. Once the first batch is sent out to the first 10 and whoever else pays before the deadline, i'm sure they will post pictures up in the end. :)

    ^ good stuff, definitely looking forward to it. It would almost be nice if you made the case slightly curved instead of sharp edges like the droid. I've love a bit more ergonomic feel to it in my hand. Something that looks similar to the case for the G1 you posted.

    Hi there, for the inside protection it will all be smoothed down so its not going to be rough and scratch up your back cover if that's what you're asking :)

    As for you paying on friday:

    Payments can still be made but the deadline is Friday January 29th, 2:00 PM Central Time.

    If you want one of these cases soon I advise you to get in on this first group buy, the next one will not be until the next month!

    I just talked to the producer. We will begin this immediately! Turn around is expected to be approximately February 27th, however it could be sooner!

    So if you want to get in on this first batch rather than waiting quite a bit until the next one I hope you can get the payment in.

    As for pictures about the case, any pictures that the manufacturer sends to my producer I will put them up of here of course. Also, we are expecting to get our Iphone case very soon so I will have some pictures of that up to show you the quality of our cases in more depth.
