I do not know why it would be a surprise. There are dozens of case designs in these forums. There are cases for sale on EBay. So it is logical that a case is on the way.

I posted a while back about RS plans for a basic free case - but I presume the Farnell is doing a more substantive case if they are going to charge for it.

The education release of the A model is supposed to have a case as part of the $25 price I believe.

The case should be as slim and compact as possible to i can show off my pi from my shirt pocket when not plug into anything.. :)

It should also have LED extrusion to the top of the case for flashyness...
