    I figured that since we already have a release date, it won't be long before private companies start making accessories, so in the spirit or organization and tidiness, i am hoping this will be a one stop thread for info on accessories for the droid X.

    I've heard different things but does the HDMI station come with an HDMI cable?

    So the Silicon Skins, never used one before, are those the soft ones? Cause I think I'd be looking for a hard case. The Verizon rep said she'd be picking up a screen protector and a hard case. Just wanted to be sure. And would anyone happen to know the official name for the droid x? beyond it being the droid x, I thought I saw somewhere where it was like MB some number some number some number.

    Awww thanks for being a doll. So soft and hard for them okay. And do the soft protect as much as the hard? Which one is technically better?

    Wonder if the car dock comes with a charging cable. Also, I wish they offered a non HDMI media dock. $50 is a lot.

    In my experience the silcone cases fell apart over time. I had 2 from different manufacturers and both broke over time. I have a LG Voyager so I am constantly opening and closing the device to access the QWERTY keyboard. Since the X is not this style I imagine it would not be an issue breaking.

    Being a male I keep my phone in my front pockets and anytime I pulled the phone out, up came the pocket with it, if that makes any sense. Plus it would always be covered in lint. I prefer the hard cases much better, more durable and just as thin. I recently dropped my LG Voyager about 4 feet on cement (and bounced around a few times) and while it scratched up the case a little bit, the phone was not damaged one bit.

    I work for a VZW Retail store, and in our shipment yesterday we received those hybrid silicon/plastic posted in the first post and also regular black silicon covers. Another snap-on case similar to the Amzer case but has a carbon fiber pattern to it all around. We also received the Body Glove case for it, and the Shell/Holster combo.

    To answer the question about the dock working with a silcon cover. It will not

    do the VZW cases have the same wide opening in the back as pictured above...or have they been updated similar to the Amzer one?

    So, both the car dock and the HDMI station require the X to be naked? That really throws a wrench into things for me since my X will be in one or the other daily. Not a big deal, but it's going to get old taking the case on/off a couple of times a day.

    How about confirmation about if the X takes a mini(type c) or the newer micro(type d) HDMI connection.

    I'm definitely sold on the Car Mount for $30! Looks like it will replace my outdated TomTom One

    I just saw the carbon fiber case...and had them hold one for me along with two X's. :D If you're thinking that this is another plastic case with a silver checkerboard pattern stuck on it, think again. This looks and feels like real carbon fiber. I'm not sure if it really is though...couldn't take it out of the box. The box just has a hole in it so you can feel the texture of the case.

    JRun, correct me if I am wrong, but I think the hdmi cable comes with the hdmi dock. Also, is VZ selling the cases that have a kickstand? Thx

    Was just in at my local VZW this morning and played with a Droid X. She was able to pul up the Black Leather snap on case w/kickstand and ordered it for me. Will be here in 2 business days, free shipping. I already have the HDMI dock and it does not include an HDMI cable.
