I just got mine and its really nice. I will be using it over my innocase II. I took a few photos of it in comparison to the innocase. The pop is not much bigger and it has a great feel to it. The power button is a little harder to hit but I am getting used to it. The photos are in the link below.

Yeah the rubber on the inside is the same as the outside. To me the case looks slightly bigger but it is well worth it. I can't really tell a difference in size between the 2.
The case is really light. I have retired my innocase for the pop. I usually don't use cases on my phones but this one does not add too much bulk and has a great feel. With the innocase it was such a tight fit I was kind of afraid the hard plastic would scratch my phone. With the pop nothing but the soft rubber touches the phone.

I received mine today also. It is a very nice case, but one thing is really annoying - the power button is way too hard to press on and off. If they had put a cut out for the button rather than covering it up like Seidio did with the Surface then this case would be perfect.

I ordered one today, it will arrive tomorrow. I am returning the Verizon case I bought, I just don't like the over all two piece design they offer. Hopefully a case will come out to support the extd battery so I can add that back on.

Got mine today. It reminds me A LOT of Speck's candyshell cases. (known for the iPhone version, but they make ones for the Dinc too) The candyshell was one of my favorite iPhone cases, so I'm going to love this case.
It does add a little more bulk than some of the other cases, but you get a bunch more protection with it. Overall, a pretty great case.

small review after the crappy pics pics
Well the case mate pop case came QUICK, like 4 days when it was 6-10 days free shipping. First thing I noticed was that no free screen protector was included. This is the first Case Mate case that did not come with one. The case is a silicon plastic shell combo but the two pieces are bonded together. It's feels like a very high quality case and provides the BEST protection that I have ever experienced. Better than the Case Mate Tough cases I uses to buy for my Nexus.
Sorry the pics suck I was in bad light and in a hurry. The pics at their website represent the case better and are very accurate to what you get.
My only issue with the case is that the damn thing holds on the Tbolt like it never wants to let go. Which is good...but bad for when you want to get it out often. You "pop" the Tbolt in but to get it out is not as easy. I've found that pushing on the case with my thumbs at the top and kinda working it until enough of the Tbolt comes out to where you can grab it is the best method(you can push on the camera to make this easier but I don't recommend that). You just have to be careful that you don't man-handle your device getting it out. If you plan on taking it in and out of the case a LOT, this may not be the case for you as it really takes care and effort.
The big upside is protection. You can lay it face down and the case raises the screen so as to keep it elevated from any surface. You can tell as soon as you place the Tbolt in this case that if you drop it on a corner, etc.., that it will be WELL PROTECTED. For me, it's better than the Otterbox Commuter or Case Mate Tough cases for the Nexus One in regards to true protection.
The rubber grips are fantastic and really make the case feel great in your hand. I really love this feature. It really gives it a high end feel. The smooth plastic shell makes pocketing very easy. All the cut-outs line up perfectly with the noise cancellation ports and microphones, etc..The volume buttons are easily depressed thru the case but the power button is a little harder. definitely noticeable if you are used to pressing the power button while naked.
Just sitting here and feeling this thing and looking at it, I really feel this is the best case I have ever purchased. I would have to give it a 8/10. one point off for being so hard to remove from the case and another point off because nothing is ever a perfect 10 This case comes close tho. If you leave your phone in the case most of the time, I highly recommend this case for the best protection you can really hope to get.
Hope this helps.
and for those that read to the bottom here is a coupon code for seven bucks off i found thru Google search:
this gets you the case for 27.99 out the door because it has a free shipping option. They said 6-10 days but I got it in four.

For those of you having a hard time pushing the power button, I did a quick fix on Monday that is holding up really well. I took a strip of duct tape and cut 4 tiny pieces that are the exact same size as the underside of the power button on the case. Stick them together and place the single piece in the little indent on the underside of the power button. It makes a huge difference in how easy the press is.
And as for the case itself, I really like it. Best case I've had for any of my phones so far.
Here are some pics of the phone in the case. https://picasaweb.google.com/jTink010/PopCaseForTBolt#
