    Seidio Innocase II, pretty damn good. Dropped my phone on concrete and it saved my phone.

    The website i posted a link to above shows that it is for sale? I would imagine they wouldn't advertise it otherwise?

    I just bought a body glove case for mine.
    They've been stellar for me on my blackberries.

    Until they make a good case for the extended battery, I'll sit tight.
    The Active X Case looks pretty darned nice, though.

    Yup, Seidio Innocase II saved my phone from a 2 1/2-3 ft drop the other day out in the parking lot. It adds just a little bit of bulk, but looks good.

    I have the Innocase II - it's a great case, but adds a touch of bulk. I've been going naked for the last couple of days cause of that. It feels great in the hand though, the finish has grip, but not too much. It fits perfectly on the phone.

    I'd really like a case that will allow me to stick a little disk on the back - the disk for an XWAY or a car mount like that. The Innocase surface doesn't allow things to stick to it. I wonder if a TPU case will work?

    I also just got the Innocase II yesterday, and so far I love it. The only thing, I have a clear shield on the screen, and when I slid on the Innocase on one side it puts a little bubble there...kind of lifts it off the screen. It's hard to explain, but I'm sure you know how having a little bubble in the shield is irritating.

    Besides that, the case is solid. Takes two hands to get it off. Adds minimal bulk. I don't know how absorbent it will be of a fall, but I see others have had good luck with it.

    I'm happy though. For now.

    Does anyone know if there's a difference between the Seidio Innocase Active listed here and the Seidio Innocase Active X listed at Seidio's actual site (as "Coming Soon")? They look identical and are being sold for the same price. I'm just curious why a different site would have them listed as "Available to ship now" and the site that makes them as "Coming Soon"... either way, I'm definitely thinking about getting this case. Someone over at AndroidCentral wrote a review of this case here, and if you're registered he has like 10 pics of this case as well.

    I can't find the case I've got, but it has the rubbery cover over the back of the phone, then a hard plastic cover over that (So it won't get stuck in my pocket, yet still has the squishy protection!)

    I love it.
