    I'll probably end up picking this up. I like my Capsule but this one looks like it could be pretty nice too. I am curious how tight the exoskeleton will hold against the actual body. Pretty nice looking. Now they just need to get it out there. If it weren't for their awesome support, I'd be nervous about buying their first batch but after my good experience with the Rebel and the quick replacements, I'm willing to take a shot when this one drops.

    Gah I literally just ordered a rebel and recieved it today, saggy bottom and all lol...looks like I'll have to order one of these as well, they look awesome, I really like how it has the soft rubber first layer to prevent scratching when taking it in and out of the case. Awesome.

    If I can only get it with a good solid clip, but apparently SwitchEasy's clip is only available on the original iPhone.

    I'm torn between this and the Showcase from Contour. which does come with a clip. Hmm...

    Just FYI..

    I like the looks of the Rebel better because the Rebel leaves SOME of the rubber material exposed for better grip.

    This one LOOKS like the back is totally plastic, which means it will slide all over the place in my truck on my console, which is a no no.

    The bottom layer on the back of the Rebel doesn't even touch when the phone is on its back since the spine is raised slightly above it. SwitchEasy site describes the I-shaped back part of the Neo as slipfree polyurethane coated so I'd imagine it wouldn't be any more slippery than the rebel.

    I prefer the look of the Rebel but the Neo does look like a tighter, more secure fit.

    Just ordered this instead of the core case aluminum slider. I'll post when it comes in.

    Yes post pics. This looks to be better than the rebel.

    I just ordered the white one, I'll post a review also and hope this one doesn't have a saggy bottom issue like the Rebel did.

    Do you think you'd need anything else with this case?

    Like a BodyGuardz or Invisible Shield? It seems like the case has everything you need, a front screen protector and silicone for the back.

    Also, is there a huge advantage to the Anti-Glare screen protectors as opposed to any normal one?

    Ordered the black yesterday. I already have a black Rebel and love the look, but find the rubber the thing that gets marked most easily rather than the polycarbonate. No idea on eta yet, haven't has any notification other than the receipt for my PayPal payment...

    Just to make folks aware, I spoke with SwitchEasy via email this morning and confirmed that a clip for both the Rebel and Neo are on the way. For me, this is great news as that is all that has delayed me purchasing the Neo :D

    Looks really nice. I am just concerned about how much bulk this will add to the phone. I am using the Incase slider now, but would return it if this turns out to not add more bulk than that case does.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    It'll be exactly the same size as the existing Rebel - and I don't think it bulks out the phone too much. Have a look at the Rebel thread for some pics to give you an idea.

    Ya I just got my Rebel last week. I am on my 4th case already. I can't get another one for a while. Must resist and see what else comes out. I love the rebel though and am very happy with the look and feel of it. Everyone that has seen it also seems to like it a lot.
