Finally got one of my cases on Friday from Singapore via ebay, but as I'm at work today and forgot my camera I can only show pictures taken with my 920 of the case un-fitted. Its a great case imo and looks very stylish on my black 920. No problems getting access to the side buttons even with gloves on although they are slightly offset. The slightly rough texture to the outer skin of the case provides just that little bit of extra grip you feel is needed.
You can see there is an inner lip to the top and bottom as you can see in the last photo which helps locate the phone in the case so its easy to take on and off but when its on you knwo it won't just "slip out" accidentally. They also do some other neat colours too. I highly recommend them.

There's a couple I saw yesterday at the Lumia launch event in Jakarta, Indonesia. The first one is a black regular rubber case that covers the whole body. It costs $8. The second one is covered in leather and has a 'flip-cover'. It costs $28. Just try looking for them on eBay.

I feel that compared to the matte lumia's, the incipio case gives me a worse grip. Not sure if the extra few millimeters and weight are the main factors, but I find myself now putting my pinky below the phone in order to prevent it from slowly slipping down.

I therefore just purchased the Incipio Dual Pro Case. This has a soft rubber case that wraps around to the front thereby also protecting the screen when putting it face down. A shell very similar to the Feather then fits snug around that soft case. It actually doesn't add too much bulk to the phone. Grip is good.
in comparison here a picture of the Incipio Feather on the Lumia 920

For me, anything's better than the slippery, already-scratched gloss coating on my Red 920!!
XtremeGuard isn't the prettiest skin, meaning it's not 100% transparent, but it provides scratch protection and better grip both in your hand and on the charging plate/stands! My 920 doesn't slide off anymore, which is awesome.
Oh, and the screen protector covers the FULL screen, perfectly! This is was very impressive to me.
... I am sorry but I just spent 10 minutes looking for my digital camera and cannot find it! So, I will have to look again later so I can post some pix of the skin installed on my phone -- hard to photograph my phone with my phone

I loved your post. Check out my post on page 7 -- ordered two of the CC-1043!
Please, please, please keep doing what you're doing -- eventually . I am new to WPCentral and WP8 but I know from maaany years of insider beta and product testing for RIM's BlackBerry that the preview, the teaser and the leak are the most exciting and intriguing forum contributions.
What, people thought it could be a fake!? Great! Then all of the cheap people who whine about a $15 accessory could buy the amazing case you showed us from the supposed counterfeit manufacturer and they'd be happy and your post would still be useful!
Ok now I'm getting a bit silly, but seriously: Thank you. I'm sure I'll take tons of fire for this post supporting you, but idgaf ;) I'm not worried and I won't waste time trying to reason with unreasonable people. Here's why:
(KEEP THIS IN MIND) neither you nor I (nor any other beta tester or product/news leak-source) have any real obligation to explain yourself, your methods, or your sources to anybody. YOU are doing EVERYONE ELSE a favor. It's that simple.
On CrackBerry.com, one of the most prominent sources for OS leaks shut down his entire connection to the community because he was harassed... I am praying that this does not happen to you! And it won't =) the moderators and participants here seem very fair and proactive overall.
Maintain the integrity you clearly have with your sources, and those within the community who take the time to understand how much you help develop a brand, a product and an even an online culture by leaks will fully appreciate your time well-spent on news and reviews BEFORE anybody else knows about it!

Just ordered a Red CC-1043 from Amazon.com for $11.99 for the girlfriends 920 last night. Hopefully, stock is in soon, so she can get rid of the garbage case she's been using as a stop-gap. Good to see orders being taken by Amazon.com. They only had it on their site as a placeholder since November 14!

I actually purchased an Otterbox for my Lumia 920 (I know, it makes it look pretty ugly, but I work in a rugged environment that being Afghanistan). I purchased the pillow charger and even with the plastic enclosure and silicone sleeve it charges my phone with no issues. I was really surprised, but glad that getting the pillow charger wasn't a waste of money!

My metallic coveres came last night! They look very nice. The orange metallic has a very deep color and looks like it's made of copper. The gold metallic looks like a semi-dull gold. The silver is very nice looking in that it's not very shiny. It looks like the dull side of aluminum foil which I really like. All three covers have the same fit as the Rock cases in that the button holes on the side appear better molded than the other multi-color colors. My wife took the orange metallic today, and I took the gold. I'll post pictures tonight when I get home.
Orange metallic -> orange theme
Gold metallic -> amber theme
Silver metallic -> steel theme
It's like having a new phone every time I change colors!
