    Does the TrackPad work through things? Like a case with a clear cover over the entire phone face? I know it's optical, but would that distort the light too much for it to function? Or is the proximity limited to touch?

    Can someone whose got one try this out? (maybe with materials of varying thickness) I'd love the option to get a case that keeps the device near %100 dust free.

    Is anyone here in contact with any case manufacturers?

    I can confirm that it works through t-shirt material

    I don't think it actually works optically, I think it's just like a touch pad on a laptop.

    The trackpad is great on the 8520, the screen protector I have on mine covers the whole top of my phone. There is also no delay.
