    I know I am. I've had good experiences w/ their products. Unless somebody else is doing pretty much what Otterbox does, I find myself waiting every day for some news on when I can give them some of my money. ;)

    Same here, I actually emailed them today asking if they had any ETA on these cases. I want one badly. I'm still waiting for their iPad cases too...it's been a while now.

    Wow, if the iPhone case takes as long as the iPad case we're going to be waiting awhile. Which kinda sucks - I didn't think it could take particularly long.

    The Incipio and CandyShell cases look a lot like Otterbox cases - I wonder if I'm wasting my time waiting for Otterbox .... ????

    I have two Otterbox cases for my (now sold) 3GS - a commuter and a commuter TL. They were utterly fantastic, and the port covers are an ingenious idea. HOWEVER. The renders for the iP4 cases look hideous, and don't offer sweet colours.

    As with the iPad, expect a looooong wait, and even longer if you're wanting different colours. It's a shame really, as I already budgeted for an Otterbox and hoped for one to be released for launch week.

    As it stands, unless the commuter case gets a makeover with colours, it's a bumper for me. Also, the metal buttons on the bumper are a cool idea.

    I'm also waiting for the iPad commuter to comes out... I can feel my beard growing....!

    Last report was ~2 months for the OtterBox cases.

    I called Otterbox yesterday. He said it wont be available for a few months. The vibe he gave was longer then the 2 months I initially thought it would be.

    How is the protective screen on the defender? I know its built in to the case, does it get dirty and annoying like the Zagg IS?

    I had no idea that the wait would be 2 months. I'm walking around with a naked iphone hoping to wait no more than a week or so. I can't wait 2 months. Pure craziness. I just passed down my 3g to my wife, i bought her the commuter case and she loves it.

    I bought a throw away silicone case off ebay for $5 while I wait for Otterbox to release their cases. I can't wait 2 months. I might have to go in another direction for now.
