No I'm pretty sure hybrid is referring to the style of case It means it has two different types of material for the case the silicone and the rigid plastic...

Hybrid, universal, whatever you want to call it. It works for both. I own it and it says so on trident site. It has the necessary holes and what not for both versions.

Cool, might dump my otter box commuter. Would you say it offers more protection? Because I would love me that kickstand.

I haven't been able to find any images about this case for our device other than the same images that are on their site. Those are small, have little detail and don't really allow us to get a good feel for how the case will actually be. I would like to see a comparison picture with this case and the Otterbox..

Pros
-Installation was pretty straight forward.
-Sturdy case .
-Weight difference from my old SGP case isn't as noticeable.
-Hand smudges aren't that noticeable.
-Holes for the usb/headphone jack are covered to protect dust.
-Hole for i777's top mic is there, but only visible when using the silicone case.
-Does not interfere with the call quality from our end. Although, I still have to test the audio from the receiving end (the person who you are talking to).
-Does not interfere with the front and rear cameras. No vignetting.
-Rear speakers sound fine.
-Kick stand is an awesome feature for watching videos. It can also be removed and rotated the other way.
-Attachments for this case are available.
-Lanyard loop.
-Belt clips rotates.
-IMHO, looks way better than an Otterbox. That's just me.

Cons
-It is little slippery if your palms are sweaty.
-Holding the phone with your right hand, you might have to dig your finger into the silicone for the volume buttons.
-Trying to remove the kick stand attachment is kinda difficult. It feels like I might break the plastic on the back case.
-Kick stand vibrates a little when receiving a call/text when snapped into the case.
-Front portion of the case kinda stretched the Zagg screen protector by the front speaker/proximity sensor.
-They should have modified the front portion of the case for the i777; the touch menu and search are a little difficult to get to if you have big fingers.

Extra:
Signal Strength

Just out of curiosity, I wanted to see if it affects the signal strength. I left the phone alone for about a minute each then took a screen shot. Anyone who knows how to interpret that, let me know what it means.

Case off


Case on


Overall: 8.5/10
It is a pretty good case considering the price. I bought mine from amazon for a cheaper price. Look for Rrryan2's post for the link.

Aloha,
EhHowzit
