    Just curious, for you case scouters that are good at finding knockoffs!

    Do these exist yet?

    i don' t think they have it yet ( i mean knockoffs) as this is a new case for apple. give it a month or two and i am pretty sure that it will start popping out at ebay.

    It's been a month or two. Nothing! If anyone sees anything, let us know. I like the design of the Apple case, but want a non-leather version, which I'm assuming the knockoff would be.

    Those TPU copies aren't a good fit, sadly, I've already tried one.

    Hey guys,

    I found this one at amazon:

    The anker "upgraded version". It's a TPU case, but the stiffest TPU case I've seen (i've tried about 7). It fits and is sized very similarly to the leather case. I loved the leather case, but didn't like being afraid to put it down on dirty or moist surfaces, and really wanted a synthetic replica. This has a great look and feel, and I'm impressed with the quality and fit.

    Like the leather case, it fits like it's "part of the phone." Not bad for $4.99 with free shipping... But beware, it's not "translucent ash black", it's opaque matte black (though I think it looks great). Also, it will completely dampen any feedback from the home button--that's a big deal for some. At any rate, the look, feel, and fit of this case are very similar to the leather case, and I enjoy it a lot. :apple:
