Excellent advise guys - thanks again!
I did some deep research and two other cases also surfaced to the top of my list:
- Diztronic case
- Cruzerlite Androidified A2
I'll add SSHGuru's suggestion to that list. Thanks!
Interestingly, for those that want a pouch case, and I fully appreciate your input that I might want to go "naked" once I have the GNex, there are very few good options. Sena, a great case maker, makes a beautiful pouch, but they pulled it from the market b/c it applies pressure to the on/off button.
A lot of GNexer's like this el-cheapo case:
OEM Neoprene Pouch Case For Samsung Nexus S / Galaxy S i9000 / S8530 Wave2 | eBay
Some GNexers found their way to this interesting pouch:
Smartphone Suede Jacket Cases - Droid X - Droid Incredible - HTC EVO - Google Nexus One - Google Android G1 Case - BlackBerry Bold Case - BlackBerry Curve Case - Samsung Instinct Case - LG Dare Case - Sony Ericsson Xperia - Nokia - suede sleeve - Ult
I've got my fingers crossed for the delivery of my new GNex tomorrow. Here's hopin' that it's right the first time.
