    Just to be clear the fallowing statement is not confirmed, but i did read, I think it was on the XDA forums that one guy call otterbox and they said they had no plans on making a case for the nexus 4. Idk if he actually even called or if no plans actually means they wont make one but thats what i read.

    I emailed OtterBox and got this response:

    Dear Grey,

    Unfortunately, we do not have plans to develop a case for that device at this time. I would recommend keeping an eye on our website, iPhone cases, iPad cases, DROID cases and more by OtterBox | OtterBox.com, and Facebook page, as they will have the most up to date information for every new release.

    Please feel free to reply to this email if you have any additional questions.

    Surprising since the phone is sold out and people really want it.

    By the way otterbox is know to say they won't make "X" case the month later they make the "X" case they said they weren't going to make. The demand for case is not issue with otterbox. It's the demand not high enough to put Nexus 4 on top priority.

    The demand iPhone is really high so accessories in general want to prompt there product as soon as possible because they wait their competitors will gain the upper hand. The iPhone highly popular devices so this is on top priority list for accessory OEM because they have most potential gain in profit supporting the device early on. The Nexus 4 is not mainstream popular device and does not have lot variety accessory OEMs' making accessories so these OEM do not have Nexus 4 on the top of priority list. Their is not exponential popular demand for the device and little comptition to worry thus the wait.

    Otterbox never said they wouldn't make it. Just keep saying "No plans at this time." And they act like almost any other company and deny right up until an announcement. They either have already decided to make one and this the badgering is affirming their decision or they have not decided yet and it might help. They get 5 tweets asking for a Nexus 4 case for every one for a diff device. They will make one, just a matter of time.

    And the popularity of the iPhone does make Otterbox jump on it faster, but so does having a prerelease sample to make a case with so you have them at launch. From what I hear LG and Google didn't give any mockups to any major case manufacturer so it was only the cheap Chinese factories taking a risk making cases just from published specs. Now that they are in the wild and they are being bugged, we shall see. They make cases for a lot of lower tiered, less in demand phones, just takes awhile. Anyone know how long it took for them to come out with the Gnex case?

    Don't pay any attention to those emails. I got an email from Sedio saying the exact same thing, and literally a day later, they had cases for the N4 that said "coming soon"
