You rely on it everyday to stay connected and on schedule, but one unfortunate drop can spell disaster. Safeguard your BlackBerry® Bold™ smartphone from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM) with the new semi-rugged, drop and scratch-proof OtterBox 1937 Defender™ Series case.
“The Defender™ Series line protects devices from everyday bumps and drops while still allowing complete user interaction,” said Curt Richardson, CEO of Otter Products, LLC. “BlackBerry Bold users are frequently on-the-go and the OtterBox provides technology protection for a variety of lifestyles.”
The OtterBox 1937 Defender™ Series case for the BlackBerry Bold smartphone provides several layers of protection:
* Layer one: safeguards from dust, dirt and scratches
o Keypad and screen: optional thermal formed protective clear membrane
o Camera: scratch-resistant lens protects camera, allowing optimal picture clarity
* Layer two: a hi-impact polycarbonate shell snaps together over the device
* Layer three: a silicone skin that wraps over device to absorb bump and shock*
The case features acoustical vents on speakerphone, headset speaker and microphone allowing clear sound transmission. Sync/charge jack is accessible through a silicone plug. Trackball, camera and flash remain functional. For convenient carrying, a holster style swivel belt clip is included.
“When comparing other wireless enclosures, nothing I have found in the market compares to OtterBox,” said Hector Serna, Communications Administrator, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Ltd. “With the OtterBox cases deployed to our sales force, the largest wireless users in our company, we estimate saving 18 percent annually on replacement units.”
For those looking for less extreme protection, OtterBox will soon be offering a new line called the Impact™ Series. This interactive case will incorporate a silicone, skin-like design with impact absorbing features. Check www.otterbox.com in the coming weeks for details and availability.
