    Interesting looking case.
    I feel like it's maybe too hip looking for it's functionality.
    Doesn't seem like it would be a construction workers favorite look, but perhaps more of young hipster's, which would make me question the level of ruggedness and added bulk it offers.
    I also don't see it being offered with a holster which definitely raises questions.
    I'm just really not sure who the target market is for this case...

    how DOES this compare to otterbox commuter in protection? Is there a comparison somewhere. Also, I really like the red. :)

    I can't talk from experience but this case seems a lot more protective than the commuter.
    It also seems a bit beefier than the Defender so...
    Their Cyclop line looks like more of the Commuter equivalent.

    Looks way too bulky
     
  10. Interesting case. Not real sure what the extra hump at the bottom is all about. Sorta seems like it would make it harder to get in and out of your pocket. But certainly looks well made and durable, that's forsure.

    Can't wait for some reviews on this case! I wonder if it will work with the extended battery though?

    One issue I see with this is case is for those of us who already have screen protectors. The case has a built-in screen protector. Can this be removed? Or would we end up with two screen protectors (one on top of the other)?

    The FAQ page indicates the existance of a removable belt clip for the Kraken case but the pictures on the DX page don't show it. Does this mean that it's not included? Not avaiable? or just not pictured?

    Tsk...tsk...tsk... Quoting Clash of the Titans on a Friday morning Steven??? LOL

    As someone else mentioned, it looks beyond bulky for an already somewhat large case. Hell, I think Otterboxes offerings look smaller than this.

    Also, I'm totally getting a "Nerf Armor" vibe, at least from the colored variants:

    In the same boat. My Otterbox should be here any day, how do I rationalize a second case. Love the looks of it though.

    Gotta get it somehow...

    I emailed Trident Case on Saturday regarding this Kraken case.

    It struck me as odd that the iPhone Kraken case had a removable belt clip but none of their other Kraken cases seemed to. I asked if this would be available at some point in the future for the Droid X case.

    I also asked about their built-in polycarbonate screen cover. My Droid X currently has a Steinheil screen protector on it and I'm not wanting to remove it. I was curious to find out if they'd done any testing with their screen cover over an existing one like a Steinheil or a Zagg. Would the two scratch each other? Reduce sensitivity of the touch screen?

    Hopefully I'll get a response from them shortly...

    I had an otterbox on my 3G and I had a film screen protector on there too. I took the film one off and just used the built in one with the otterbox. It is much better than the film ones. The film one only protects from scratches. It will in no way protect your screen from something hitting it. The built in ones in the otterbox or this Kraken case are designed to protect your screen in the event of something striking the screen. Now how much protection is another question but I've seen my old otterbox take a pretty good beating and the phone inside was still perfect.

    Am I missing something? This definitely is not a Droid X...
    Attaching some images from the Trident site of the Kraken case for the
    X (how do I insert instead?)

    So while I wait for the "SharK' to become something other than Vaporware, I ordered this, actually like the look. I ride a m'cycle and it'd be nice to think the phone might survive if I crash and need to call 911 :)

    Reading comprehension my friend. I posted the photo to get my point across as to how the case looks like a NERF ARMOR case for the Nintendo DS...

    Comparison completely lost on me - I had no idea what you meant by NERF and I've never played or even seen Nintendo...
