    What is the hold up with the release of the Otterbox Commuter case for the iPhone 4? The Defender case is already up for sale...and every time I call the Otterbox CS line, the line is busy!

    I've been putting off buying a case for my iP4 waiting for this case...

    You can pre-order one on Amazon but there's no expected ship date listed. I suspect they're just trying to get as many Defenders out as possible first. More expensive case = higher profit margin, plus they say on their site that it is their most popular case. Probably figure they're satisfying more customers this way.

    I'm in the same boat. I had a Commuter for my 3GS and it was my favorite. I got impatient and went another route. I live in Atlanta and drove down to Case-Mate's offices. They have a case that is very similar:

    iPhone 4 Hard Tough Cases by Case-mate

    I actually like it better for fit and feel. Protection is very similar. My only issue is the bottom lip is a little loose. It is not an issue now but could be after prolonged use. Case-Mate gives you 30 days so it is worth the risk. If you have a kiosk or local store that carries Case-Mate, they may have it in stock as well.
