    I just purchased the 9700 for my son and I have noticed there are very few cases available. The AT&T store had a midweight gel case that we got just until we could find something better. My search online has turned up Incipio, Seidio, Casemate and Otterbox. It looks like the Incipio has/or will have one called SILICRYLIC that looks very similar in build to my iPhone Switcheasy case that I love.

    I am looking for a lightweight, but strong case. Don't want one that will be bulky, but do want it to protect the phone from bumps and small drops. I know more cases will be coming out as the phone is out longer, but would like to find something soon, if possible.

    Share what you have found.

    I agree there doesn't seem to be a huge selection of cases for this device yet. I am using Seido case (comes in two pieces, black), and have ordered a silver Case-Mate Barely There, but I really miss the Case-Mate I had on my 8900 (forgot the name of it, but it was black, leathery-looking, one piece). I don't like dragging the phone in and out of a leather holster all the time, always afraid I'm going to drop it in the process.

    Look on ebay for "epik" cases. I ordered one with a screen protector for $4.99 shipped and after reading a few reviews on the case everyone seems to love it.

    I always get the Seidio cases and holsters for my devices. They've been dropped numerous times and not even a scratch (even on the cases themselves). For the 9700, you'd want the Innocase II as well as the Holster (if you want one, that is. Otherwise, just the case is fine).

    Seidio cases are good, i have the seidio innocase II and it's a champ... lightweight and i like the grip i have with this case.. doesn't add too much bulk like the otterbox, but the otterbox is alot safer but not pocket friendly

    The Epik case is basically what we got from AT&T, of course not at such a good price!

    I would go for the Case-Mate Barely There or the Incipio Feather.

    IMO, don't buy Seidio cases. Overpriced garbage with horrible customer support.

    Right now I'm using the Ifrogz case from the AT&T store. It's sturdy but not too bulky.
