    Hi-

    May be too early to find one - but is there a case out there that will fit the Nexus S, protecting it from damage while still keeping it fairly low-profile?

    Thanks,
    S

    There was the Platinum series cases offered by Best Buy. All other companies like Otterbox, Seidio, and CaseMate will be a few weeks to months after they get their hands on a phone.

    The one that best buy was selling was 35$. I'm sure there will he better and cheaper cases within the next few weeks.

    Better? Not so sure. It is made by Seidio for Best Buy "almost" exactly alike to the Innocase

    Yes best buy sells the platinum case! its ok I would not pay 35 bucks again if I could re do it. It has the mat finish so its very slippery in hand.

    If you guys are looking for a case, just wait til the Android Central market has it in, support the site... plus they have quite a few quality brands. As soon as they get some in... I will be all over it.

    Best $5 protection available until Otterbox comes out with a Defender Series case. I mean, for $5! Hard to beat!

    I actually went and purchased the Platinum case with the holster from Best Buy and I'm actually very happy with it. It covers the phone nicely, it makes it a bit easier to hold and it doesnt take too much away for the aesthetics. The holster works great and until something better comes out I'm staying with this one.

    I would like to see a case that covers the glass as well but this one works fine for now.

    You're probably not going to see one because of that curved screen. Buy a screen protector if you want some coverage.

    I have an invisible shield on mine, but for extra protection, I bought this pouch. The Android robot is a nice bonus. eBay.com.sg: BLACK Neoprene Pouch Case for Samsung Google Nexus S (item 250732879331 end time Feb 24, 2011 21:22:07 SGT)

    I would get it... but would prefer not to buy things from other countries.

    I received that "S" Curve gel case yesterday, and I have to say I rather like it. I didn't want to put a case on the phone at all, but I dropped it and it put a few minor dings on the lower corner of the battery cover (not cool at all). It doesn't add much bulk and flows pretty well with the design of the phone.

    Neither would I, but his 98.9% approval rating from over 81,000 eBay-ers made me feel better.

    I'm curious to see what Case-Mates come up with. Their "barely there" cases are always sleek and nice.

    Thinking about getting this:

    seidioonline.com
    $29.99 is a hefty price for me since it doesn't come with a screen protector. and Have to spend additional $$ on a decent one.

    But the case looks awesome someone did a video:

    if anyone is till interested; i bought an 'amzer luxe' in black... (Amazon.com: Amzer Luxe Argyle High Gloss TPU Soft Gel Skin Case for Samsung/Google Nexus S - Smoke Grey: Cell Phones & Accessories) and like it quite a lot.

    It's not really a case, more of a 'skin'... it fits quite snugly around the phone, easy to put on and take off. It's protected the phone from scratches during several falls.

    not only that, but I find that the bare case is too slippery for my clumsy fingers. I find the skin provides just enough extra grip for my fingers so that I don't feel like it's going to pop out of my hands while swyping or typing.

    There are more cases out there now; the only shortcoming with this skin is that it can't clip on to a belt, or to an armstrap or something... in the winter, I can wear a sweater with a breast pocket. However, as summer comes i've started thinking that the seido innocase with clip would be great. However, it's kind of a sticker shock thing, since the amzer was under $10.

    If I could find a pouch with belt clip that'll fit the nexus inside the amzer, that would be perfect!
