Anyone have a case yet? Where did you buy it? If not, what are you using right now as a place holder?

Most of the cases don't seem to be shipping until October.

That Belkin folio looks nice...

Under whose authority are you creating an "Official" thread?

Wasn't aware that permission was required. Surely the fact that no one else has made one should be enough?

Must be just me but none of those cases appeal. If I had to choose though, it would be the Griffin Elan Form.

I need to see reviews. My preference is for a belt one that is horizontal like many phone ones are.

official threads started by unofficial people would carry more weight with the proper capitalization of iPod. :p

I'm using an iPod sock for the time being. It's funny though because the iPod touch is a little too long for the sock and sticks out the end. I want a really slim case so I can hold it in my pocket!

Just using the black slip case that came with my 5.5g iPod that I never used. Works fine for now.

I am waiting to get one as soon as they come out, probably one from griffin, but right now I am using one of my socks. I don't want to spend money on the Apple socks so I just use one of my own. It works pretty well, it doesn't scratch up anything and no fingerprints on the back or the screen.

I agree I like the Belkin. Wonder what the skin protector is like though. Doesnt seem like you would need on if you are using a folio....

I'm really ,hoping that iSkin comes out with a revo (http://www.iskin.com/revo/) for the iTouch.

Having a built in stand is really nice...I think I would use my ipod most at work for watching/listening to podcasts

iSkin revo would be absolutely awesome, they are the best!

Btw, I cant get on www.iskin.com for about 3 days now, am I the only one or is the site down?

I am actually waiting for a decent case to come out before buying the touch. I really like XtremeMacs Tuffwrap - here is the one for the iphone : http://www.xtrememac.com/cases/iphone/tuffwrap/index.php

I am sure they'll have one out for the touch soon enough. It seems to be a great case.

I use the samething right now to. It fits it perfect.

I use the Apple case for my iPod anyway.

The Agent18 clear plastic case for my 5g Video has been awesome. It looks like Griffin is making one for the touch as well.

That is what I want.

Hey guys,

I changed the thread title to suit some of your tastes.

I find it really odd how petty/lame some of you responded to this post. I merely wanted to start a thread on, what I thought, was a valid topic. If you guys actually think I give a crap whether or not "I have weight" in a online message board...about apple products. Well, then...

I don't know what to say about that.

Can we just keep this on topic and talk about cases?

...

Can't a brother talk about some cases?

I want the iClear case as soon as it's released. I have always been a fan of the iClear line, I have used it for my iPod video, ipod nano, and pretty soon my touch. They just have a touch of class and strenght, very good build quality, and look nice.
