    The company PDAir has just released a bunch of new DROID cases. They now have 6 different kinds including:

    1. Vertical flip - leather - $28 - various colors
    2. Vertical flip - crocodile skin - $32 - various colors
    3. Aluminum case - $28 - silver and black

    All of these look interesting. From the pictures, it looks like the aluminum one adds very little additional bulk. They state:

    - Lightweight and strong.
    - Neoprene inner lining for extra protection and shock absorber.
    - Cutouts give easy access to all handheld features.

    Has anyone purchased either the flip or the aluminum ones - and what do you think??

    Edit: The aluminum case may be thin enough to allow it to be used in the dock???

    This video shows how the aluminum case works - you have to open the case to access the keyboard - but when I am out and about I rarely use the keyboard anyway.

    It does look like it might fit the multimedia dock with the case open as in the video. The vendor probably does not have a dock to verify this with.

    Yeah, they should have done another take. I don't mind the aluminum case, but as I have a holster I don't need it.

    I like the horizontal flip cases because it covers the screen, and then I won't need to install a screen cover. It looks like you might be able to pull out the screen while it's still in the case.

    Has anyone tried the leather flip cases?

    FYI, I ordered the vertical case w/o beltclip a couple of days ago. Yesterday I received an email stating that due to this being the holiday season, the order MAY take up to 21 days (not counting Sat/Sun) to receive. I'm not in any rush but for those who are, please keep this in mind. PDAir's cases look good. I may even order a aluminum version if this one turns out ok. Stay tuned.
