    Went to Best Buy and picked their Platinum EVO 3D Black case and holster. Also known As the Seidio Online "SURFACE Combo - Black".

    Seidio always makes pretty nice and durable cases and they have improved with their Evo 3D version. It fits snug, and has felt on the inside. The outside also has a really nice felt touch to it. The case completely protects the dual cameras and wraps around the edges of the front.

    It doesnt add to much girth to the phone and overall looks really nice. I added some pictures of the case and holster. You may not be able to tell from the pictures, but the case and holster are a very nice JET Black color. Im really impressed with this case and how secure the phone feels in it. I had the SURFACE combo for my OG EVO, and this one feels x10 better and seem like itll last longer.

    I know on the Seidio website they have the regular Surface combo which I have now, or the Surface combo with kickstand. I know for sure Best Buy has the regular Surface combo, but not sure if theyll be carrying the one with the kickstand. The price wasnt too bad at $34.99 either.

    For those of you that are picking up your phones tomorrow and want protection right away, head over to best buy and pick up this case and holster.

    (sorry about some of the pics being blurry, I took the pics with my OG EVO.) lol

    Did they have any other colors? I want to get either white or blue, but I also want a holster and they probably don't have a holster with those colors. The holster combo on seidioonline is 49.99, why is it so cheap (34.99) at best buy?

    I am posting my question without seeing your pictures because I don't have a post yet. Your pictures may answer my question.

    Is the clip still held in place by a very small (about 1/4") piece of plastic? I snapped 2 sets of those holsters with my Pre...

    they only have the holster in black. But they do have different colors in just the case alone... i never understood why it was so much more from Seidio direct. Thats how it was last year with the OG Evo too..

    They had one in white without the holster at my Best Buy.

    And I agree. I also bought this setup and it is very nice!

    had the seidio version for my EVO 4G and refuse to use another ... it scratched the hell out of my 4G

    now the other case they have with the rubber base and the plastic skeleton over top has my name all over it

    I just posted about that one. That big gap between the two halves really bothers me. I wish the active case had a kickstand!

    if you guys are looking for a heavy duty case that has a kickstand, the otterbox defenders holster doubles as a kickstand, that is what made my decision on going with it

    I saw their version of the Active, only in black I believe. I went up there this afternoon and was hoping they would have the surface kickstand case, but they didn't. I bought a case on amazon for 5 bucks to hold me over until I can get the surface kickstand through seidio.

    I got the convert. Sure it's bulky, but with its milspec rating it will survive the rigors of construction. I actually did the bundle. Case, charger and invisishield for 75 bucks. They even installed the shieldbfor free. The shield doesn't affect 3d at all. The convert feels about as wide as the regular EVO.
