Apple is offerring us no case solution this iPhone launch since the iPhone 4? I know the bumper isn't awesome, but at least you knew you were getting a decent means of protection until the new cases came out. We don't seem to have that option at all this time around. The third party manufacturers can't possible provide solid solutions until they get the phone and can test their designs. This will take weeks. And why is the Thunder adapter taking so long to ship, of all things? I use the 30 pin interface every day, thus my iPhone 5 use will be fairly limited until these adapters (which, Apple has restricted to only their selling rights initially) are released, in "October"! Somewhat irritating, since the regular Thunder charging cable ships right away. Just seems like a slightly rushed release. I'd rather them have created a new bumper and launched their accessories in a timely fashion, to have a more organized release.
