    So what is the timeframe on Otterbox and Trident releasing cases for the HDs when they are released? I believe there is a slight size difference so the current Razr/Razr Maxx cases won't fit or am I mistaken?

    Verizon rep showed me 3 with lots of bling and was flabbergasted that I wanted it naked--used my droid X for over 2 years naked with not a single scratch...personal choice, I guess

    I compared my MAXX HD with my coworkers MAXX and there was a slight size difference - mostly in the bezel. A standard MAXX/RAZR case would cover some of the screen on the new phones and the buttons.

    Good to know. I used the standard VZW case/holster on my DX which absorbed most of the brunt. Except the stupid belt clips. I went through three cases then just gave up b/c I kept snapping the belt clips. I figure with this nice of a phone I may go ahead and do a serious case on it to hopefully make it last.

    The MAXX HD is so pretty..i'd hate to cover it up. lol It has that "heft" like the DX had...i don't forsee anything happening to an unprotected one honestly. It's built like a tank.
    Also something that may relive your worries is that the screen bezel edge is slightly raised all around so if you lay the phone down on it's face, no part of the screen touches the surface (if it's flat like a countertop or desk) so the screen is very scratch-resistant just in that respect. My S3 was flat as a board and had a 1" scratch on it by day 3. I really like how much thought Moto put into the aesthetics of the phone and build quality. The S3 feels like a flimsy plastic toy in comparision. and it feels like i can open beer bottles with my MAXX dancedroid

    Yeah, it's very pretty, I just am a bit of a klutz and not sure I want to chance it.

    Ordered a TPU case from Ditztronic the day the phone came out. Case works wonders, nice and thin. I will definitely get an Otterbox when they come out though cause nothing beats those cases when it comes to protection. I guess how fast they make them depends on how popular and how much hype the phone receives for them to justify the time and effort that goes into researching and developing and mass producing them. I think I heard somewhere that Trident won't be making a case for the HD :(

    I just got my phone and it fell out of my pocket onto the street and the glass over the Verizon symbol cracked and broke off. Get a case!

    I haven't gotten an email yet about it. I hope it is available now because I am about to get a phone and the case availability may sway me toward the GS3 instead. But if I do the Razr, I amy get a cheap case in the meantime, unless the Otterbox is out!

    Like many of you, I love the thin form factor of the Maxx HD, as well as the look and feel of the Kevlar and the metal band. So there is a big part of me that just doesn't want to use any case on it. But, what worries me is that the glass front goes virtually to all four the edges of the phone (except for that thin little lip) and if the phone were dropped and hit anywhere on an edge (which is quite likely with a drop) I would think it could quite easily break the glass. This is my main concern, I don't care so much about scratches and dings. And as you have probably found out, currently there aren't lots of cases available for the Maxx HD. However, Incipio does have two cases currently available. They both come with screen protectors and they both have a non-slippery mat finish which doesn't fingerprint. I bought both of them directly from Incipio (incipio.com - see website for pictures) and here are my observations:

    The Incipio Feather case ($25) as the name implies is a very thin shell that snaps onto the phone. It snaps onto the little lip of the two sides of the phone. It does cover the corners, but it leaves the top and bottom edges and sides pretty much exposed. There is no padding of any kind with this case. It does increase the form factor, but very little. While it would protect much of the phone from scratches, I guess it would provide some limited protection for drops, but basically I don't think it would really provide that much protection.

    The Incipio DualPro case ($30) consists of two parts: a thin very flexible silicone sheath that goes around the back and all four sides of the phone covering 100% of that thin little lip between the glass and the metal side band. Then a thin hard case (like the Feather case) snaps on top of the silicone sheath, locking the silicone sheath in place. It definitely increases the form factor of the phone, but not a huge amount like some of the really rugged protection cases. This case is probably a lot like the Otterbox Commuter case, although I have never seen an actual Commuter case (only looked at the pictures of the Commuter base on the Otterbox website). From the pictures on Otterbox's website, the Commuter case might be a bit bulkier, although it is hard to tell. The DualPro would definitely protect the phone well (but not from extreme circumstances like some of the mega cases). It is all black (unlike the pictures of the Commuter case on their website) although there is a version that is pink and black. Both the power and volume switches have silicone nubs (versus cutouts) and I think the volume rocker nub could be a bit more pronounced (although maybe they did it this way so there wouldn't be a tendency for the ring volume to accidentally change while the phone is in a pocket). This case also provides protection for the camera lens "window" which is flush with the back of the phone. I think the DualPro case is probably a good balance between protection and not drastically increasing the form factor.

    My personal thoughts - I am returning the Feather case. If I'm going to lose the thin form factor, the Kevlar and the metal band, then I want more protection for the glass (the whole phone for that matter) than I feel the Feather case offers. I will probably grudgingly use the DualPro case just because of the protection it offers. Maybe at night when I am in bed I can take the case off and admire the Maxx HD naked (just kidding!)

    I have the Ditztronic case for the time being till Otterbox becomes more available. They are flexible slim cases that don't offer a lot of protection, but are great none the less because they aren't bulky. I dropped my HD on the concrete the other day, luckily it fell on the corner on the case side and it scratched the case just barely and the phone was fine, but I still would like more protection lol.

    I've got the Incipio feather case, looks just like it but is 10 bucks more retail. Missed the boat. I tried out the Incipio dual one with silicone also but it just made the phone way too bulky and heavy for me. I'm gonna go for the Cruzerlite when that comes out for the Maxx HD.
