    Who else has preordered the Defender for their iPhone 5? I ordered the punk color which is slated to ship the 21st.

    how come on their site its still in preorder while on amazon its already in stock.

    Now I want to buy one but I want the one with red in it but it isnt on sale yet.. now the decision.. wait or buy ahead so I can get this before my phone arrive (prime member) :confused:

    I'm getting mine on Wednesday, Otterbox would have sent my order in a few weeks:eek:.

    Only difference from Amazon & Otterbox is the limited selection of colors on Amazon.

    Amazon doesn't have the color I preordered so I don't feel bad. I just hope it ships on time.

    Amazon is delivering my Otterbox Defender for my Iphone 5 on Wednesday. I don't know why they are shipping faster than Otterbox.

    I ordered an Otterbox commuter through Amazon for my DH. It's in stock in black and has already shipped. I'm suppose to receive it on Tuesday.

    I ordered the defender from Otterboxes website the day the iPhone 5 was announced but after seeing this thread, I ordered it on amazon a couple days ago and it was just shipped out today and since I am a PRIME member, it looks like I may receive it as early as tomorrow :) woot. I'll post pics once I get it.

    mine came in from Amazon- super fast delivery- nice.
    being as im a belt chip user this improved design made he happy- the rubber is totally different- its very hard not spongy or soft at all- it will work fine if you want to just slip in your pocket- not like the old defenders

    Meh I deal with this every time Otterbox makes a new case. The coolest color combination is always either

    1) not available at BestBuy
    2) never available at launch
