    Ditto. I've had the worst luck with anything I've bought from Seidio.

    The Droid 2 Otterbox case hasn't even been released, according to Otterbox.com.

    hes right the otterbox for droid 2 is not released yet. if you look at the link you posted, it clearly shows the OG droid. the droid 1 has a different front than the droid 2, so it wouldnt fit.

    They are selling seidio cases for the droid 2, but i would wait for the droid 2 otterbox commuter series case, imo

    It always seems like a lot of people are diehard fans of seidio cases - why do you all like the otterbox stuff better?

    The droid2 is my first droid and I've never tried otterbox, but I jumped onto the seidio bandwagon the day it was released. I had been hearing rave reviews about it for the original droid so I figured it was worth the 30 bucks.

    I've had it for about a day and I'm liking it a lot so far. Its sturdy enough and it has a nice feel. It looks great too. I would recommend it.

    What are the otterbox cases like compared to the seidio? Just a lot more substantial? I am thinking otterbox might never even make a D2 case.

    if you look on their website, the D2 commuter series case for otterbox is already in production and should come out soon. check out their website sometime, it gives plenty of information on their products and upcoming ones =)

    Heres to hoping! Now I have to decide between the seidio and the otterbox = / Do any car docks work with the otterbox?

    As much as I love the Seidio cases (and I do), I'm going to hold tight on ordering one until the Otterbox is out.

    Otterbox cases, even the Commuter line, are often too bulky for my tastes, but I also work in an environment where a little extra protection could go a long way, so I'm 50-50.

    If the Otterbox case will fit in the stock car dock, protection factor will probably lure me from Seidio.

    I cant imagine this case fitting in a stock car dock =/ With the covered ports you will probably need to take it off to use it on any dock.

    For me I am trying to decide between the otterbox which seems like a better case overall (and never have a car dock) or the seidio with the seidio D1 dock which I've heard works for the D2.

    The dock does have multiple insets (i.e. it's set up to handle a case, and the only buttons are on top, so that's a plus), but on the other side by the sheer nature of the Otterbox' girth, I'm still willing to bet you're right, and its case will be a touch too much.

    Think of the Otterbox case as a Cadillac or a Lincoln, and the Seidio case as a Buick or a Mercury. The quality difference is significant, as well as the price. But, you get what you pay for. My choice would be the Otterbox.

    It sure is murder waiting for this thing to be released. Then I have to wait for it to be at amazon because I have a gift card there.

    Sorry, but the car comparison made me lol. All the brands you listed to me make boring, stuffy cars that are about as exciting as watching rocks race each other. Could you use a better example? XD

    Seriously, I can't tell you the diff between a buick and a lincoln outside of maybe msrp. Their body styles and interiors are similar to my eyes.

    Well I'm not sure how you can make cases for android phones that are anything *other* than boring and stuffy. Their function is protection, pure and simple. The phone itself is where the excitement lies.
