by that time I can get it faster & cheaper here in Belgium.

Cancelled mine too, real shame as looked like an excellent deal. Have ordered from Handtec.co.uk now, which is roughly the same price, but looks like they will have stock a lot sooner.

Got my HTC clear hard case today from PrePayMania. It's OK, decent fit, better than nothing.

It's basically a 20p piece of machined plastic with the HTC logo stamped in.

To be honest if you are getting the run around on stock you may be just as well ordering the 1.99 cases from Hong Kong; they don't look much different. Especially if you look up item number 230775175340 on Ebay now.

do you think i would be better cancelling my order and waiting for the case mate barely there cases? I had one on my HD2 and it was great quality - just wanted to see what the clear case was like but not sure now if its not that great quality.

I'm prepared to pay for the best looking, quality case if it means my phone will look good and be properly protected...

Here's a video of the official case your talking about,

See if you like it.

Yep that's the one. Obviously I can't vouch for the fit of the Hong Kong cases but they do look very similar. I'm not sure if this will last the course, I may well look for something different when there's more choice.

I had the drilled hard case on my SGS2 and much preferred it to this. It serves a purpose I suppose.

FYI there are several new official case part numbers appearing in online listings:

TPU Purple - http://www.puremobile.com/HTC/HTC-70...-One-X-Purple/
Gel Black - http://www.puremobile.com/HTC/HTC-70...n-One-X-Black/
Gel Magenta - http://www.puremobile.com/HTC/HTC-70...One-X-Magenta/
Hardshell White/Purple (technically not a new find, falconeight linked it in this thread a few days ago)- http://www.puremobile.com/HTC/HTC-70...-White-Purple/

The two purple cases are both listed at http://www.gocellular.ca/htconex-cases as well. Sadly, all of these prevent use of the pogo pin connectors for the speaker docks.

I wouldnt wait to get the Case Mate Barely There cases as they dont have the same camera lens protection as the Official HTC C700 cases or the ROCK ones.
Shame really, as i was holding out for one too.

Which protection does the official one have?
