    Ordered right away. Tried to get FedEx 2 day but wouldn't let me, had to do US ground. Emailed Otterbox and hopefully they can change it to FedEx for me.

    Kind of sucks for all of the case makers that everyone is getting a free case. Although, the defender seems to be way higher duty that the bumper. It will cost them some sales though.

    Probably why Apple is going to try to get some third parties on board to offer a several cases. Apple will pay them something for the cases so their sales don't tank and they can move some product.

    Dang twitter. Ah well, hopefully it will still ship earlier than 7-10 days. That seems excessive since as of an hour or so ago they supposedly still had them in stock. Hopefully thats just to cover themselves.

    Theres a "flap" of rubber that covers it that can be pulled up. I shouldnt really call it a flap because it isnt. I dont know what the proper term is....anyone know? Its the same for the 3G/3GS OtterBox Defender case.

    I emailed Otterbox and asked when Defender cases with color variations would be released and the employee that responded stated that they should be available in a month or two.

    Yeah they sent out this email....

    Dear Valued Customer,

    Due to an overwhelming demand from all of our customers (end users, carriers, distributors, resellers, etc.) interested in the Defender Series for iPhone 4 as well unexpected weather delays in China and Alaska, OtterBox is experiencing longer than usual order processing. Additionally, technical difficulties at our warehouse last week caused shipments to be sent out of sequence. We are doing our very best to send out orders in a timely fashion and from this point forward all purchases will be shipped in the order they were received.

    Until all existing orders in our system are fulfilled, we are not offering expedited shipping and purchases are averaging a 14 business day processing time from the time your order was placed. Once your order is shipped your credit card will be charged and you will receive an email with tracking information. As an apology for our error and delay, your order will receive $5 off per Defender Series case for iPhone 4 ordered, which will reflect on the charge you get when your order is shipped.

    We value your business and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

    Best Regards,
    OtterBox
    But after that I received an email from customer service 30 JULY (same day)in response to my concerns on why I hadnt received shipping notification and i was told that it would be NO MORE then 10 business days for me. Still nothing. Nice.
