    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.

    Just checked out the website and the leather flip cases have magnetic studs. Way to do your homework PDAir.:rating03:

    I e-mailed them about the magnetic snaps. They claim to have tested it with the Droid and had no problems... But I ordered one so I can report back when I get it.

    I looked at a video of one of the flip cases, the book flip one. It's nice, and you can pull out the keyboard, but the keys of the keyboard are tucked in clear plastic. I was hoping that you could use the keyboard while in the case.

    Oh well, the search for the perfect case with a cover for the screen -- it goes on.

    New NOREVE cases for DROID coming!

    I wrote to the company NOREVE today as they make great leather cases and their website states that they plan to release a DROID case soon.

    Their rep wrote back immediately with the following info.

    "We are expecting the Droid case to be released the 2nd week of January.
    - It will likely be a vertical flip case like the ones for the HTC PDA.
    - The keyboard will definitely be accessible inside of the case"


    So for those of you who can wait - this might be another good option....(probably in the $40-$50 range)

    Attached are some photos of the HTC case (click on the thumbnail to see a full size image) - I am hoping that the Droid case will be similar to this:

    Was that a dude in the Video? If so he really should cut his nails! Yuck! If it was a female then boy she got some man hands lol

    oh yeah so I add some relevance to the thread, that aluminum case looks horrid, the big hinge on the side looks like it would get caught on everything
