Otterbox reveals protective case for Nokia Lumia 1020
Smartphones are expensive investments, especially the high-end models. Anyone purchasing a new Windows Phone will want to care for it as if it were a living being, and cases are available to help prevent damage to a mobile device. While Nokia handsets are known for being built to survive nuclear fallout, even the Lumia 1020 needs some pampering here and there. Otterbox has unveiled a case for the new flagship Windows Phone.
Here's what the Otterbox Defender case looks like:
Sporting an impact-absorbing outer layer, rigid plastic shell, built-in screen protector and holster belt clip, the Otterbox case is a perfect companion for any Lumia 1020 owner. The accessory is listed for $49.95 and is available in black.

Plus, the recent push to "Thinness" from nokia kills some of the durablility.
Stole that from another user in the forum about a year ago...
I love that Nokia has put in the lanyard hole, hope to see it on their future devices as well, it makes it a lot less neccessary to have a case for the phone.
I like the idea of a case on the 1020 primary for the ability to reduce the hump syndrom on the back. Making the back closer to flat is a pretty big bonus. The official Nokia wireless charging shell does this a bit. But I wouldn't mind a case with good rubber gripping that adds a little bit more thickness, and comes in various colors to boot.
Classic Nokia Cyan, Red, and of course PURPLE!
1) hire Stephen Hawking.
2) develop pixel sized blackholes.
3) develop a mechanisim to move black-pixel-holes on LED screens.
4) develop the software to handle it
5) create best exprerience ever.
*note: dont worry the blackholes cant effect the phone, because the phone itself is undistructable, that a whole defferent program.
Any background on Trident and their case record?
Don't be so sensitive bro ;)
Incipio is coming out with one for the 1020 shortly.
Unfortunate that it doesn't have wireless charging built in.
What i find odd is many, if not most, of the reviews for acessories on this site do not lead to US / ME being able to purchase
them from THIS SITEs " Shop Accesories".
