The site says pre-order only so no-one will have one yet.
Not entirely true.

Supposedly they started shipping them on the 1st. I ordered an "UltraSlim Pouch" (http://www.senacases.com/Brands/apple-iphone-Cases/ULTRASLIM-POUCH) a few weeks ago, so it should be on the way.

I'll post a review when I get it.

I've gone through about ten cases so far. No one can seem to get it just right (by my standard, anyway). The Sena case looks great. We'll see how to holds up in actual use.

only one that interested me

I looked and looked for two weeks before I ordered any case. I even went into an Apple and ATT store. The Sena Case was the only one that I showed any interest in. From my experience with myself, if something catches my eye, get it. I go back to the first one that does all the time. So I ordered mine on July 31. I am waiting for it now. If anyone does get theirs in, share. We have our own likes and dislikes, I am more curious when you ordered and when you get it.

Ive had my Sena for 2 weeks

Its the leather pouch and I got black alligator and my wife got pink and we really like them. VERY well made and with great clips. I posted pics at mac rumors forums 2-3 weeks back. Great case for the $$.

Update on this: Sena's website is now saying that the UltraSlim Pouch is due to ship on the August 10th.

I emailed them on the 1st and they assured me that they were on schedule. Obviously they were wrong.

I ordered the Sena Magnet Flipper case on June 30th. It shipped before August 1st but took a whole week to ship from Orange County to LA. :confused:

The quality is very good. Stitching and leather are top quality.

Yes, I have received it. I will take some pictures and post them, but I am still trying to post pictures of the Pocket Solutions case as well. Not enough hours in the day.

Anyway, the Sena "UltraSlim Pouch":

Very, very nicely designed.

The leather is soft and supple and the interior is, as advertised, very soft. I have nothing protecting the body of my phone (except a screen protector) and this case hasn't put a scratch on my phone.

The case has holes on the bottom to allow sound from the speakers to be heard. I personally feel that this is not necessary, as I have tried cases with no holes for the speakers and have had no problem hearing the phone. I think the holes detract slightly from the overall look of the case, but that's just me.

As advertised, this case really, really is ULTRA slim. Its slimness (is that a word?) might also be its only real drawback: While it fits very nicely into a pocket--it adds almost no bulk at all--it also wouldn't protect the phone much in a fall, but that's a trade off that you have to accept if you use this case.

Your phone will not fall out of the case. It is perfectly sized to the phone. I can hold the case upside down all day long and the phone wont budge. When you want to remove it, a quick push on the bottom of the case will push the phone out far enough to grab it on the top and pull it out the rest of the way.

If you use a skin on your phone, such as InvisibleShield or BodyGuardz, the phone will be a bit more difficult (though not impossible) to insert and remove from the case.

If, like me, you don't want to "wear" your phone and you are looking for a pocket pouch, you won't go wrong with this one. All-in-all this is a beautifully designed and very upscale looking case, and for less than $30.00, you really can't beat it.

I will post pictures when I have a chance to breathe.

Hope this helps.

You're welcome!

If you want more "drop protection" for your phone, you also might want to consider the Pocket Solutions "Passport" case.

I reviewed it under another post specifically about that case.

It is equally as nice, but it is a bit thicker, and I think would do a better job of protecting the phone if you drop it while it is in case. Of course, this advantage does add some bulk, but not a lot.

Frankly, I am having a very difficult time deciding between the two; I like them both very much.

I ended up ordering the magnet flipper in croco red, it's shipping on 8/22 so it's still a quicker turnaround than some of the other cases. I'll post pics and a review when I get it...

Sena Cases Magnet Flipper Case

I hve this case in pink, Ithink it is pretty, exquisite unique and I think it beats the other 10 cases i have purchased and returned. I see that there are a lot of selections in colors not offered by others and their pricing is fair. I think if you buy one you will love it as much as I love mine. this is not my first Sena Cases their quality and customer service keep me coming back when I get new gadgets.
