    Nice choice, I opted for the walletbook style and am eagerly awaiting its arrival. I will be back in this thread to post about it when it comes.

    Which color option did you go with? I went with the white.

    I went with black because it's made of leather (I think) and that's the only colour they have a picture of.
    Ships thursday I think. Or should.

    The black looks really nice on the site. I could have swore the presale originally said they would start shipping on the 29th but I may have misread something (as it certainly says the 31st in the description now).

    Have you (or anybody reading this obviously) ever ordered from Sena before? I'm wondering if I should expect a tracking number in my email.

    Thanks for the heads up on the discount coupon - found one online that still worked today - ordered the dockable one here:

    http://www.senacases.com/Brands/iPhone-3G-Cases/SENA-DOCKABLE-CASE-FOR-iPHONE-3G

    I really liked the wallet idea, but this one at least does have a pocket that will hopefully hold an id and a credit card.

    ohgod. wallet + case? That means that not only would I have consolidated my iPod and phone to one device, I will have further consolidated my wallet into the mix, meaning in order to leave the house with all my stuff in order, I'd only need the iPhone and my keys. I could totally splooge right now.

    Yea this was my thinking when I found these cases. It's a brilliant solution for unorganized persons such as myself.

    Also, big ups to all my fellow James' on the macrumors forums!

    Yes, I got a tracking number with my order. It's a USPS tracking number though, so its useless until the item actually arrives.

    I'm not super thrilled with the shipping speed of Sena. Hopefully my case is waiting for me at home today.

    Although my name is not James, Jim, nor Jimmy, I'd like to chime in.

    I ordered the Black Croc. Am I making a mistake? Anybody with experience with Sena's leather quality?

    Thanks

    Anybody get a tracking number email yet? They took them off of pre-order status so they must be shipping some of them.

    I ordered the green ultra slim case. It came yesterday, and I love it. It's not as snug as people led me to believe it would be...slides in and out with a tug. Has a nice quality look and feel. The packaging was excellent. Shipping was a little slow, but in the end I'm pretty happy.

    Will post pictures/review later.

    Got my wallet case last friday (black croc). I'm not thrilled with it. It's seriously waaaaay too bulky. It's about 2-3 times as thick as the iPhone. It's also not particularly well designed. If you put a credit card in one of the pockets, it covers up the camera!

    Also, just overall, it doesn't fit perfectly, and the raised edges make it tough to type on the keyboard.

    Anyone want to buy a Sena Wallet case in black croc? (JK)

    Hmmm.
    I'll be getting my regular black one sometime early this week.
    I'll let you know what I think.
    Though I'm not so bothered about the bulk since as long as it's smaller than my wallet and iphone combined I'll be happy.
    But I do hope the quality is good....


    thanks for your thoughts though.

    Did you get the wallet book or wallet skin? I'm interested in the skin because the phone faces OUT which is huge.

    How many slots for CC does it have? Is there a DL slot?

    I got the Wallet skin. There are a total of 3 CC slots + 1 DL slot. One of the CC slots though, overlaps with the camera hole, so if you put a CC in there, you won't be able to use the camera.

    Believe it or not, I actually found that this case was THICKER than both my iphone (in an elan form fit case) and my wallet combined!

    The description on the Sena website doesn't mention it having a camera hole, whereas some of the other cases (such as the walletbook) list this as a feature.

    Received. Fantastic

    I have received my Sena walletskin case as well. I really liked it. I used to have sena magnetflipper case. This case actually feels THINNER than my old case. As always, the leather is really good. I like the smell. I am happy. I will use couple of days then I may post some pictures of it for you.

    What color did you get? Maybe the croc style is thicker. I really don't care, because my wallet at the moment looks like George Costanza's. This will force me to simplify my wallet.

    I got the regular black leather case and it arrived today.
    Overall I'm happy with it; it is exactly as expected.
    The build quality is good, it fits snugly etc.
    The only problem is that it completely ruins the iPhone's looks; a lot of cases accentuate the look of the iPhone, this one disguises it.

    However, it is not thick; it doubles the size of the iphone but less than a wallet with it would.

    The aesthetics really bother me though. I may send it back .
    Any other ideas of wallet cases?
    I really loved my Agent 13 case for the old iPhone but the new ones suck.

    Pics later if I get the time.

    Does it have a space for money? From the pics it looks like just credit cards.
