    Lightbulb Case design idea

    Here's what I'm looking for in a cell phone case, I'd like to see if anyone else agrees with me.

    Start with the idea of the shell/holster combo. The shell goes around the phone, and slides into the holster, with the huge clip attached to it. I prefer this method of screen protection to any other, though it is too large to put in my pocket comfortably, and I don't want it on my belt.

    One day, I just got fed up and yanked on the holster clip and ripped it off the holster. This slimmed the phone down quite a bit, but left a small hole in the cover. The hole hasn't been a problem yet, it just looks tacky.

    I thought about the way this case worked for a while, and realized I really just want the holster part, without the clip, and also without the shell. Just one protective piece that my phone can slide into in order to cover the screen and save it from keys, coins, etc. Does anyone else see this as a design win? Someone who can forward the idea to a case manufacturer would be ideal (wink wink, nudge nudge).

    In summary: clear screen protectors are too weak, and really only protect the phone from scratches. Wallet style cases are too bulky, and the phone likes to stick inside. Shell/Holster combos are far too bulky, and really should be worn on a belt. I guess I would call my idea a "clipless face-in holster".

    Any input or constructive criticism is welcome.

    Are the clips removable on any of those, or do they need to be torn off?

    I suppose I could rip it off, fire up the old belt sander to smooth it down, and throw some Bondo where the hole used to be.
