iPhone 5 cases available on Sept 21?
I know there are a bunch of cheap partial covers for the iPhone 5 available. But does anyone know of a complete cover the for iPhone 5 a la Otterbox or Lifeproof style (complete cover including screen) that will be available on Sept 21?

I'm thinking there will be some cases at retail stores at launch, but (guessing) cases like life proof will take a few weeks. I'm interested how life proof will handle the charging door now. I know it will be similar, but could be a lot smaller.

For those of you that may be interested, I was in a Verizon corporate store earlier this evening and they had a small selection of iPhone 5 cases available already. If you have one in your area, you could call them to see if the store in your area has them also before heading down to purchase one.

Otterbox states on their website (somewhere in the Q&A section for the product) that select retailers should have the Defender (not sure about the others) on Friday.
I ordered 2 last night and was told they should ship on the 21st. I've seen Verizon is already sending some out so I'm hoping they might get here sooner than next week.

Like A BOSS....Just ordered my Otterbox Defender case on Amazon 49$ with Delivery scheduled for 9/21. I went all in...I've seen Verizon's offerings of off brand cases with decent protection for launch day and the cost 24.99-35.99 without tax. I'll feel better knowing its in an otterbox rather than a brand I don't know. Many people have those cases on at work, haven't heard a bad review. After buying 64GB at 423$ and AppleCare+ 99$ = 522$. Am I really gonna short change the Protection to save 10-12$ buying a cheap case it at Store with Tax. Im not trying to break the bank but I could always sell it if I see a thinner otter case later on.
