I ordered a complete case and it arrived just in time to show it at
the Openmobility conference. The outer parts fit quite well, just the
speaker box seems to have some small problems. I could no debug them
yet but I'll try to get it done during the next weekend. I will attend
the Linuxwochen in Vienna on friday and saturday. If you want to see
my case parts (or anything related) come to my talk on friday at 16:00
[1] or try to catch me during the two days.
