Tonight I stopped by my local Verizon store to see about exchanging my shell/holster case again. My case has the typically flaw in the top right corner that won't allow the phone to sit flat on a surface. I tried the one they had in stock, but it was worse that the one I had. Since I was at the end of the refund period, I decided to return it.
As the rep started to ring me up, another rep who'd just come out of the back told him they'd just gotten in a cool new case for the Droid. They both went to the back and returned a few minutes later with something I'd never seen before.
The case comes in a cardboard box with Droid graphics. The back of the box reads:
Snap-on hardcover and mount offer a hands-free solution for your Navigation capable phone. Hard cover and mount are compatible with all CoatCase Duo Hard Covers. Easily adjusts for convenience. Designed for quick installation and removal from your windshield.The case is thick and looks a lot like the one for by Body Glove. It features the same style of belt clip. But the bezel on the front isn't as high and the finish is smooth, though the coating has just a touch of tackiness to it, so it's not totally slippery. The sides do appear to be thinner than the Body Glove.
Package Contains: Snap-on Cover and Car Mount
The attaching clips on the back of the display are also quite thin and don't look like they'll interfere with the slider at all. Like the Body Glove case, it's a bit difficult to get it on the phone.
The clip is the standard rotating/locking style that I really hate. But I'll admit that it can work as a stand to prop the phone up to watch stuff. Turn the clip straight up to get a shallow angle, sideways to angle the phone more. If the USB jack wasn't on the bottom, you could use it with Dockrunner and bypass getting a dock.
Stay tuned for Part 2.
