    From iLounge
    :
    Though many of the iPhone 5c models are still available for delivery on Friday, iPhone 5c cases show a shipping lead time of 1-2 weeks on the U.S. Apple Online Store.

    Thanks Joe!

    My shipping mail said the cases would come on Thursday but this morning the tracking said on the truck. Arrived mid-afternoon!

    Update: as requested -- the cases are black, and yellow. The phone is green.

    And more: the case has a microfiber lining. The construction is meticulous, i.e, no little bits of the lining or backing showing around the edges of the holes in the thing. Don't think it's a $2 part, actually. but yes the margin will be substantial.

    Okay you left out the most important details- color of the phone and the case.

    QC looks like a $2 part IMO. At least in these images :apple:

    ^^ the shiny plastic of the case packaging is deceptive. The cases have a nice matte finish. Soft, but not sticky.

    I actually like the two-tone look, but the partial text looks so bad! Amateurish and sloppy.

    They really are trying to reinvent themselves.

    Why has everything gone to circles?

    Wow that was some review. Took me ages to read it all. We need more in depth front page news like this. :D

    So these people ordered these cases last Friday ; it only took 2 business days to deliver . That means if we pre order at midnight on Friday there's a possibility we might get those iphone 5s's on Monday perhaps !?

    Jony's way of protesting that he was forced to do cases since we all know how much he hates them. :D

    You cannot talk about this sort of thing without pics :D

    I guess you _could_ wait till you get your phone. Sounds like a fun color combo.

    For the iPod, there were socks...
    *For iPhone 5C, there's net leggings.

    I don't particularly care for the 5C case. The silicone is a lint magnet.
    But I do however like the 5S leather ones.
