    I will be receiving my Black Leather case w/kickstand by tomorrow confirmed by my fed Ex tracking #. I bought this case because I think leather just ads a sleek professional look to a phone. Beyond that, it's the only one that has a kickstand which i knew I'd want after seeing my sister's EVO. Overpriced? Definitely but it's one of the more unique cases and thus my choice for must have Droid X case.

    You do realize there are only a handful of cases that will be released in or around the X's release date yes?

    Personally, I went with Amzer's Argyle case, as I feel VZW's offerings are yet again overpriced.

    I realize a great many things in this world and this is one of them. ;) Of course with "handful" being more than 1 or 2, I would like everybody's feedback. Especially those who have received their case already.

    I'm gonna wait for Otterbox to come out with a "Commuter" case for the X. I have/had one for my BB Tour, and its pretty slick.

    If you're talking to me, I ordered it by dialing *611 from my phone directly through VZW on Saturday. It's the only DX case with the kickstand being shown so far.

    I've only seen it listed by VZW. Either visit your local store and get lucky, call and speak to a Sales rep about selling you one early, or wait until Thursday.

    I ended up preordering an Amzer Luxe Argyle cover to get me by until I see some better offerings from 3rd party manufacturers.

    I had the Seidio Innocase Surface for my incredible and loved it - I'm holding out for one of those (in sage :)) but don't look forward to taking any case off/on for a car dock. Wondering about the Seidio car dock......

    I'm gonna need a rugged case for sure. I hope Otterbox gets on the ball with a case soon. Until them I'll just use a hard cover and a leather Fortte holster made for the Evo.

    Naieve question, but is a screen protector going to be needed since it uses Gorilla Glass? Or is "Gorilla Glass" marketing BS just like Retina Display?

    Neither GG or the Retina Display are actually BS. GG does improve the glass's durability and scratch resistance by a good bit: it will still scratch and shatter though (there are threads over in the Droid forum concerning this). If you aren't planning on keeping it in your pocket (aka getting a holster) and you are the most careful person in the world.... I'd still recommend looking into a screen protector. Something like Phantom Skinz will provide pretty much the exact same clarity, touch-feel and responsiveness as the regular screen: it's almost silly not to have one.

    Better safe than sorry.

    Received my leather kickstand case just now via FedEx. Can't really tell how great it will be until i get the phone. Leather is smooth and not textured and kickstand was a little sticky to get out but it works. I'm hoping the 2 pieces that snap together will hold together better once the phone is in place. Box came with droid branding as did the anti-glare screen protectors.

    :eek:

    1. Take photos with a digital camera of some kind
    2. Connect camera via USB or card and reader to your pc
    3. Direct yourself to a media hosting site (imageshac.us/photobucket/flickr.com etc.)
    4. Upload photos from your device.
    5. Copy and paste direct links and insert them into a message inside [​IMG] into the reply box.
    6. ?
    7. PROFIT!

    I bought a cheapie silicone case from Amazon for when I bring the X to work or maybe to the bar.. Other than that, the case comes off when I get home and she will be naked for the rest of the day. ;)

    Wow, I'm not one for leather cases, but this one looks great, and obviously serves some functionality with the kickstand.

    Now...just to hear how comfortable it is to pocket with a X inside...that maybe a different story :p
