    So when I went and got my Bionic, I decided to pick up the defender case for it. It comes with a built in screen protector as well.
    Ive usually used commuter series in the past but it hadnt come into stock at this store yet. Its was $37.50 after my discount which isnt bad.

    YES! ITS HUGE! But, unlike previous otterbox's ive had (commuter series) the post covers fit VERY nicley. I feel like my new $589.99 device is a tank, which is what i want :)

    Here are some pics comparing it to my Droix X in a Seidio Active X case.
    More pics later :)

    AND yes, it does come with that huge belt clip!



    Any questions and ill be happy to answer :)

    I would assume it does not fit in the docking station with the case on, correct?

    Correct. This is currently the biggest case available for this phone. Lol. It will not fit

    I looked at it when I picked my Bionic up this morning. I was like " wow, they actually have this? and on launch day?"

    Then I looked at how thick the case was. Like 4 times with width of the phone. Hah. The thing looked like an old Nextel.

    What are your thoughts compared to the Seidio case? I used them for my OG droid and was generally very happy but my wife has an Impact Otterbox on her work iphone and that seems like a nice silicon case. Hoping they come out with that as it seems sufficient.

    I loved my Seidio! It was prob my fav case i ever had for my DX. (ive had otterbox, ebay snap on plastic, silicon gel, Seidio Active X, and triden kracken).

    THe otterbox defender series is KINDA pricey and HUGE! Not as big as the trident kracken, but it is a huge case. But it doesnt bother me too much cause it is a $600 phone, i dont mind the AMAZING protection and added bulk. But thats me, others go naked (without a case and NEVER have a problem), its just my prefence to be protected :) Ya never know :)

    BTW, i dont carry insurance....so this case is kinda my ins! lol

    My dock has an insert. Will it fit if the insert is removed? Also for the car dock?

    I want an Otterbox Defender and have both docks. The car one is not so big a deal but I like the table dock.

    Does the extended battery fit?

    Nope. If you have the extended battery it wont fit since the interior frame is form fitted to the standard battery and cover. At least for the one they were selling at the corporate store near me.

    when i bought the bionic at verizon, i asked for cases with belt clips. they had two. the first was the otterbox defender, the other a verizon branded model which had added space for use with extended battery. i chose neither, still looking.

    I currently have an X with the Seido Rugged Case. Got rid of my Otterbox Defender because it fit horrible and the belt clip was small. Does the beltclip on this case fit wide belts? My workbelt is wide and the Seido was the only clip that could fit. My Bionic is being delivered today...thanks for any help.

    Have you tried removing the extended battery cover? It might work. With that tank of a defender case, I don't think you would miss the battery cover.
