    I literally got mine today, in blue argyll. The fit is perfect and doesn't move around on the phone. All of the keys and ports on the outside of the phone are easily accessible, except the bronze contacts on the bottom are covered. Won't work with a dock (which Seidio has in the works). I'm 100% satisfied for the $11 I spent.

    Also, "Google" and "HTC" are still clearly visible on the back with a nice cosmetic touch now. I personally always considered the Iphone the nicest looking device (never owned one either) and I think this case really gives the N1 a similar feel, especially the back. Kinda wish I got black though. My only complaint is that the camera lens almost protrudes further than the case, making me anal about scratching the lens.

    Ya, i'm thinking about the dcmugen one since it seems they're similar cases and it comes with a screen protector. hmm.. Gotta do some research to see if their screen protectors are any good.

    I ordered 2 off of ebay..I probably shouldnt have i havent had very good luck with screen sheilds off there. Never seem to fit correctly. It would be pretty sweet if switcheasy would make some cases like they have put so many towards the dam iphone. I wouldnt mind paying 30 bucks for a good case that comes with all the goodies like the iphones do.. (headphone plug, dock plug, 2 screen sheilds, video stand and microfiber)
    Now that would be nice!

    SwitchEasy needs to make a case for this phone, yes! Preferably like the Capsule Rebel. I have that case in pretty much every color aside from pink for my iPhone.

    you pay for quality, plus you can sometimes find them on eBay for a few bucks less...never really had any luck with generic cases...

    I wonder what the extended battery will do to the form factor of the N1. It would be fantastic if it were the same size but with a higher capacity.

    Don't like that at all. I'll stick with Invisible Shield when I can be bothered to put it on.

    I wouldnt mind paying 30-40 for a switcheasy. I had the rebel serpent, the speck candyshell, and the incase slider for my iphone. I have my eyes on one of the innocase ones for the N1. Also i cant remember the other one on there it has the incase slider form factor going on its pretty cool.

    I've got the smoke and blue. The smoke definitely looks great. I don't care for the diamond shapes, but that's just my taste.

    Still waiting on mine but at least it shipped. That means it'll level into about 5 business days total. Not bad for free shipping.

    If I like it... since it's so cheap (paid like 7 or 8 bucks) I'll order the green and/or orange, too.

    I've had that for a couple days now. It's slightly thicker than I thought it would be (making the width feel about like a naked iphone). More protection, but I don't like the thickness (it's not huge or anything; I was just expecting thinner).

    The look is OKAY. I'm not thrilled about it, but it's more important to me to be able to throw my phone around than to have it look good.

    It is slightly more rubbery/siliconey than I thought. It doesn't slide around very easily on most surfaces, and it feels good in-hand, but it also slides in and out of pockets easily (even pretty tight jeans). I wouldn't use it if it didn't.
