Just found this last night:

Does anyone have any experience with it? I'm mostly concerned about signal/gps degradation. However, since it's only a bumper it shouldn't mess with it should it? I'm somewhat worried about if it sticks out enough to elevate the camera, but that's a secondary concern to the signal loss. What do you guys think?

Bought it and then canceled my order during the Chinese New Year holiday lol. So I had time to think about it. I have the aluminum bumper and that also degraded the signal just slightly and also can mess with your gps. Just a heads up.

I knew it would probably be a let down. Oh well. Now to find some sort of bumper only thing for my Nexus. I've got like 4 cases but I'm finding out I like it naked more than anything. A bumper should be a nice middle ground.
