    We have 3 new Notes in our home and had to buy 3 cheap TPU s-line cases for them because there isn't much available yet. There are some aluminum bumper cases on Ebay that look like the iPhone Element vapor cases, but they are for European model only.
    Hopefully some will come out soon. A $600 phone with a $5.95 piece of plastic on it is just wrong.

    I am using a speck case on my note with a moshi screen protector. Easy to get in and out of my pocket.

    I'm using boxwave's unicolor case and love it.

    http://www.amazon.com/BoxWave-UniColor-Samsung-GALAXY-Frosted/dp/B000IN1ZPI

    Fits like a glove and provides pretty good protection. The back is frosted but still transparent enough that the "Galaxy Note" logo shows very clearly. I ordered the white one but it's available in black also.

    I'm keeping my eye on seidio's website though for when they will release their "Active case with kickstand".

    http://www.seidioonline.com/samsung-galaxy-note-active-case-black-p/csk3ssgntk-bk.htm

    Take a look at their skyrocket cases to get an idea of what the cases for the note will look like.

    http://www.seidioonline.com/samsung-skyrocket-active-case-glossed-white-p/csk3ssskyk-gl.htm

    Gonna be torn though as to whether I'll use it over my current case but seidio cases offer great protection and the kickstand is a great feature.

    Just wondering how you like the case so far. I'm noticing that i think my case adds a bit more thickeness than i realized. I took the phone out of the case and was surprised at how much easier i could grip and handle the phone. So I'm thinking maybe i need a case like barely there which keeps the phones thin profile. would really appreciate your advice on the barely there case. Thanks!

    I got the case on Thursday and I really like it. It's very thin but gives adequate protection. It has the same feel as my Incase for iPhone. I feel it's definitely worth $25.

    Just ordered this case from Rearth. Someone mentioned it in a different thread and also found a review for it on youtube who gave it a thumbs up. My current Boxwave Unicolor case adds to much girth and the case also covers the volume/power buttons and require a lot of pressure in order to use them.

    So I've been on the hunt for a slimmer case. I decided to go with the Rearth case over the Case-Mate Barely There case since Rearth offers a white version whereas Case-Mate only offers a black version. Will let you know how I like it once it gets here.

    Both diztronic and sgp offer tpu cases. Diztronic is cheaper, but I really like the look of the sgp case.

    Got the Rearth case in the mail yesterday and I like it alot. It really is pretty slim and adds no noticeable bulk or girth to the device. Plus I really like the fact that it leaves the power and volume buttons exposed. With the Boxwave Unicolor case it covered the buttons and it was really hard to interact with them. I had to use a lot of pressure in order to press them. Plus like I said earlier the Unicolor case added too much bulk to the device.

    But I'm really impressed with the slimness of the rearth case so far. Plus it has little tabs that cover the headphone and mini-usb ports so no lint or anything will get stuck in there. This is exactly what I was looking for. I can now finally put an end to the "great white buffalo case hunt" LOL.
