At least Brexit is apparently getting yet another extension, so no need to worry about extra customs fees or stuff like that.

I've never understood why people bother with cases, when they have perfectly good trouser pockets.  Cases are for wimps who don't use their device enough! :-)

Problem is that storing (cosmo-sized) device in your pocket is going to cause a bulge that is very uncomfortable once you sit down. Only type of pockets that might work are ones in cargo trousers...Pockets work for *small* devices, such as my on-call emergency cell that is just 8x3x0,5cm.

The ebay offer for custom-made case seems to be the best option (albeit a bit costly) - there's now a Cosmo offering as well.

Now that we are getting closer to production run, has anyone discovered any good candidates for carrying cases/pouches for Cosmo?

That 17,14cm length is going to be a problem, since I really haven't been able to find anything good at least in Finnish market Even "XXL" size cases seem to be too small (typically they appear to have dimensions of with about 14-16 cm width).  E.g. this one https://www.insmat.fi/fi/tuote/insmat-exclu...ottokortti-rfid is "only" 165 mm.

Even cases compatible with Samsung Galaxy S10 plus don't work - S10+ is smaller...

Having a window for the external display would be nice too, but not really mandatory, but a quick access+protection are the primary features here. Belt clip is also something I prefer since I don't like shoving a phone down my pocket.

Closest I could find are these:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mopaclle-Holster-P...one&sr=1-13

But if anyone has already found a good solution for e.g. their Gemini (which has same dimensions) that is easily obtainable, please share.

Thanks.

Hi, thanks for the account.

My reason for wanting Cosmo is that I've always liked to have my "phone" with full keyboard. I got Nokia E90 almost 20 years ago, then N900 when it was new. I have been thinking about replacing it, but suddenly it seemed that all phones with full keyboards vanished from the market (with the exception of Priv). So yeah, while I want to use it as phone, I also need to produce text (mostly for server/network admin tasks which are nicer to do if I don't have to whip out a laptop every time). Luckily my N900 has been working fine - only real problem is lack of TLS 1.2 support which means that lots of websites have become inaccessible unless I proxy via a TLS-upgrading squid. Fortunately e.g. Exchange sync to O365 still works fine.

My only beef with upcoming cosmo are it's dimensions - E90 was 13 cm in length, N900 is 11 cm - cosmo is *much* larger. Means it no longer attaches nicely to a belt case. But I guess I can live with that.
