They need the hardshell case to be developed for it to be worth it for me. I've owned 5 various cases from Vaja (3 iPod [2 3rd gen, 1 Video], 1 iPAQ and 1 Treo 650) and loved them all for the most part except the soft iPod one. The hardshell ones are about the best cases for electronic devices. Just my personal opinion.
Last week I got a response from them saying they were not planning a hard shell case.
