    Yeah. I ordered black ( I liked it the best) but the order said that I could change to another color for "immediate shipment". However, so far they only have the black color available. So it looks like we have to play the waiting game now. I'm sure the case will be worth it, though.

    Bummer. I really want the purple one. Those leathers are so beautiful. Guess I'll wait. I am looking forward to reading the reviews here.

    As of right now the only color available is black, since the product was only released a week or two ago. I'm sure that by the time our cases arrive, the other colors will be out on the market. The e-mail that I received basically said as much.

    Another quick update. Noreve got back to me about 3 questions I asked them.

    The questions I asked were:
    1. How easy is it to put on the case, and take it off?
    2. Is the slide-out keyboard fully accessible while the Droid is in the case? (I asked this more for confirmation than anything else.)
    3. Does the magnetic closure activate the Droid's docking mode?

    A Noreve representative just sent me a reply e-mail. He said:

    1. "Very simple, the case slides in and out. It is held in by pressure."

    2. "Yes, the keyboard is accessible and in no way hindered or blocked."

    3. "After extensive testing, we can assure customers that the magnetic closure does NOT activate the car dock mode."


    This is good news for you guys that are on the fence about this case.

    I have been looking for a case that is easy to use but is also easy to take off.. I use my car cradle and home dock.. but the few I have tried are hard to put on and off. so no case.. anyone try any others that are easy to put on and off that dont mess with the slide action also. A belt pouch/case is not for me so... Just asking. Just want to protect my baby!!!

    Have you looked at the PDAIR vertical case?? There is a plastic sleeve that you just slip the keyboard into - so appears to be easy to put in and take out of its case. There is a thread on it here.

    And someone just gave a rave review on it here with lots of photos. I was nearly going to buy it until the Noreve came along.

    Note: one person on the thread referenced above loved it at first, but later changed their mind as the plastic stuck to the keys - but you can make up your own mind if it will work for you.

    Has anybody received their Noreve case yet?

    They told me on Jan 11th that I should receive it by the end of January - but nothing yet!! I sent them an email tonight asking if any updates.

    Bought it at 13th January from France. My UPS status is still "billing information
    received".

    Here is the answer of Noreve:
    Thank you for your message. We have received the same message from other customers. We have contacted UPS to know what is wrong. We will contact you as soon as we know.

    That was on wednesday.

    EDIT: They replied again. UPS seems to be to blame as there are missing 50 cases. They'll send me a new case very soon. I'm okay with that.

    the top hole appears to be the headphone jack, an what I think you're talking about on the closed case looks to be a logo, not a hole
