    Otterbox Defender Case

    In case anyone is wondering..

    I sent an email to them asking if they had an anticipated release date for the case. This was their response last night:

    "Thomas Bever to me
    11:40 PM (7 hours ago)
    Just like you, we’d love for our cases to be available right when a device is, however we need the device in hand to analyze and design to the exact specifications. We conduct extensive research and testing to ensure we make a precision-fit case for each device. In our design process, we make certain nothing is missed and the correct approach is implemented. We need to work directly with the device in order to deliver OtterBox quality and that’s why our cases appear on the shelves a month or two later. Great design takes time and we appreciate your patience! Please take the time to sign up on the website to receive email notification as soon as the cases are available.

    Thank you,"

    So...reading between the lines....They don't have a clue.

    So after reading this, I am kinda stuck as to whether or not to buy different case. I paid my $55.00 for a preordered otterbox. No,after reading this,should I wait,or should I just break down and buy a different case? I may just have to cancel my order and invest in something else for my Xoom.

    I wouldn't wait any longer; it was released nearly 3 months ago, and lots of other manufacturers have released cases. Unless they're developing some new, anti-gravity case that holds the xoom up in the air for you, there's no good excuse for taking this long if they actually intend to release anything.

    I thought about cancelling my preorder but ill wait. The crappy Motorola case is fine until then. My only buff with all these other case is the darn flap on the back is annoying. I like otterbox how it has two pieces

    I'm so torn right now on what to do. I agree that I really like the idea of the 2 piece stand, and my xoom travels with me at work as I visit my stores, so the ruggedness of the case would be great. I may go with something cheap and see what happens for a little bit w/ this one.

    I found a really cheap leather folio Amazon. I am going to hold off cancelling my Otterbox order for a bit and try out this Amazon case. I love my iPhone otterbox case and hate to lose the good price I got for the preorder.
    Good things come to those who wait.

    Agreed 55 bucks for the case is a good deal

    They released a defender for the Galaxy Tab.... Surely the Xoom will get some love soon. I hope.

    How long ago was galaxy tab released before xoom? Well all we can do it hope it comes soon. I believe the ipad 2 one was just released so perhaps they'll turn their r&d off the Jesus pad and towards the xoom!
