Contacted CaseMate (USA) a few days ago via Twitter and they said ETA for IS cases will be mid-April. Although Barely There cases are already being sold on eBay.

I have a bad impression about case-mate.

Sent from my HTC Incredible S using XDA App

This is pretty good news. I was going back and forth between a hard or silicone/rubber case and a full-body invisible shield (though they still haven't offered a hint as to whether or not one will be offered), but since the IS is actually quite reasonable in size I could go with a case-mate...

Here in the UK i recently brought the Casemate barely there from my local carphone warehouse and it seems to be, so far as i haven't actually dropped the phone yet, a good case. As the name suggests adds very little exta bulk to the phone.
Also it comes with a screen protector

The screen protector is already available and the rest of the cases are expected to be available for purchase in Europe in the middle/end April

I've had quite good experience with the Case-mate barely there cases, they provide the adequate protection with a range of colour choices also.

But at the same time I am deciding between several other cases as well, I definately won't be investing on more than one case though, for I don't see myself keeping the phone too much longer, around 6 months perhaps when the summer holiday comes and we may see a few more surprises.

PDair HTC Incredible S Leather Case

]HTC Hard Shell


They all have their own selling points, I have never really had to complain about both Case-Mate and PDair but they serve different purposes for me in someways, the Case Mate is alot more casual, and the PDair is mainly for work.

The Hard Shell shown by Mobilefun seems a reasonable choice but price is TBC, if it had other colours coming soon it would be great as well.

Thank you for the links. I'm just wondering : what is the difference between the "barely there" and the "safe skin" models?

Safe Skins are soft silicone and they cover all the back and outer edge on the front part of the phone.

Barely There covers are hard, with rubbery finish, that covers the back and the sides but not the upper and lower edge of the phone.

Correct me if I am wrong

I just bought a barely there case from this guy:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CASE-MATE-BARE...item1e6249dccc

Ignore the picture as that is of the tough case, the barely there case doesn't cover the top or bottom edge of the phone. It is light, tough and worth having, and this eBay seller was very quick to dispatch too, would highly recommend. I will take some photos when I get home tonight.
