Rocketfish case from best buy ($24.99):
Pros - I like the appearance more as it is a smooth all black surface. It is also much easier to press the four capacitive buttons and feels more natural.
Cons - Thinner than the the verizon case and therefore offers less protection. It feels like if I drop the phone a certain way the case could actually pop out. The hooks that hold both sides of the case isn't as secure as the verizon case. At the sametime, however, this also makes the droid 2 much easier to slide open the physical keyboard.
Verizon case with holster ($29.99):
PROS - The surface feels rugged because of the design of protruding lines. (The lines have a woven basket design.) This gives it a really great grip and therefore a much less chance of dropping the phone.
-You also get a comfortable feeling that your phone is well protected because of it's thickness.
-The hooks are very secure and you'll feel confident that the case won't pop off if you drop it.
CONS - My main gripe is the border just under the capacitive keys. They protrude too far out and really gets in the way when you try to press one of those buttons. It's the first thing you notice as soon as you put the case on. To me this is the deal breaker since it makes using those buttons feel so unnatural.
-Because of the grip lines I'm not too crazy about the appearance.
-It also may be too thick for some people.
-Because the hooks are bigger it makes it slightly harder to slide open the keyboard.
-I did not like the holster. Even though the phone fits securely in it, it is rather difficult to remove from holster and it gets really annoying when you're trying to answer a phone call. I find that removing the holster off my belt and then removing the phone from the holster is the easiest and safest way to answering a phonecall before it gets sent to v-mail which shouldn't be the case. It's just too difficult to remove from the holtser when it is clipped on to your belt and I feel that with constantly struggling to get it off the clip in time to answer a phone call can lead to actually dropping the phone entirely.
Of course you can buy both and return one of them within thirty days which is what I'm doing. I'm still undecided but i'll post when I do make a decision.
Also, I'm hoping seidio will make a case and holster for the d2 as I am a fan of their cases but they never made one for the d1. Oh well; we'll see.

OTTERBOX Commuter where are you? I am dying for the otterbox case to come out for this phone. I had both the commuter and deffender cases for my blackberry storm and it was impossible to damage the phone with either of them on it. I dont want to hurt my droid 2 waiting but i dont want to waste money on something else in the meantime.

Maybe I'm boring, but I'm really liking the black rubberized Verizon case. It has a subtle wavy pattern which makes it stay in your hands well. It also feels really solid and protective and doesn't add that much bulk. Only downfall is that it makes the top row of keys on the keyboard a little hard to use if the slider is open.
I like having all the available case possibilities out there if I get bored with this one.

So, I as well as everyone else here is having a very difficult time finding a nice, thin, easy slide out case for my droid 2. I have gone through about 3 cases already and none of them are good.
First case was the Amzer argyle TPU case which was a TOTAL JOKE. Please do not buy this, you will be greatly disappointed. First off the back part of the case is perfect, fits on the phone nicely and once you attempt to put the flimsy front part of the case on is where your troubles will begin. It is a flimsy rubber with tiny rubber corner clips which do not even stay clipped to the phone when you slide it up...I had gotten a refund for this.
I got a verizon rubberized red case, nice case but it is nearly impossible to slide my phone up to type with the case on! Without the case the phone slides beautifully and once this case comes on i feel like I am ruining the construction of my phone everytime I push to slide it up.
The clear plastic case from Amzer is also crappy. Again, cant slide the phone easily and you see all the crumbs and dust particles and finger prints on the case which annoyed me.
Overall, I am patiently waiting on the case-mate barely there case. I would assume it is the best option as they are taking their dear sweet time trying to perfect this product. I hope it comes out soon! Either that or seidio needs to launch something.
These cases all make the droid 2 look so bulky too, it sucks...I love the body of the phone without a case, but I want it protected so we shall see...SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS WITH ME!

I finally received the seidio innocase and holster for the d2 and I have to say it is the best case for it. It's sleek, not too thin, not too thick, just perfect. It even has an opening for the noise reduction mic on the back which is something the other cases I've tried doesn't have. It has the soft touch feel so it feels really nice. It fits on the phone very snuggly too. It doesn't feel like it is too tight (like the Verizon case) or too loose (like the rocketfish case from best buy). I feel like if I drop the phone the case will not pop out (although I have not yet dropped it since I've gotten it) I highly recommend.
I also got the holster which is much better than the Verizon one. The phone can actually go in face in or face out and it has a clip to secure the phone in place and you push it up to remove the phone. I like this better than Verizon's holster because you would have to slide it out and it was very cumbersome to do because it is so tight. the clip is strategically placed so you still have access to the headphone jack and power button. It is a little harder to remove from the holster if it is faced out but not really a big deal.
So what are you waiting for? Order it now! Lol. Trust me; you won't regret it :-)
