Otter Products Announce First Rugged Case for Treo 650/700 Smartphones

View product video:

Fort Collins, Colo.–Otter Products, LLC. releases the OtterBox 1920 case, a rugged, polycarbonate case that protects Palm Treo 650 and Treo 700 series smartphones from water, dust and dirt. The casing completely seals the device from elements while providing access to keypad, touch screen, volume and program buttons. This protection also saves customers from having to replace or repair their damaged units from hostile work environments.

The OtterBox 1920 accommodates Palm Treo 650, 700w, 700wx and 700p models, so Treo owners can now work in virtually any environment with complete use of phone, email, internet, MP3 files and camera all through the case.

“Because Treo smartphones are used in all sorts of environments, from the beach to construction sites, rugged cases to protect them are in high demand,” said Jim Schwabe, general manager, accessories, for Palm, Inc. “The OtterBox case is the perfect complement for those who need to keep in touch while in harsher environments. And its unique design doesn’t limit use or capabilities.”

The case features a newly designed compound latch for easy opening and secure closing and rubber overmolding for grip and drop protection. A protective cover safeguards delicate LCD screens and flips up for screen access. Mil-standard quality assurance testing for dust, water, and drop and shock protection, ensures the OtterBox design can withstand severe conditions.

“Working in the landscaping industry, I generally go through about three phones a year,” said Alan Patterson, Owner of University Lawn and Garden. “Now with the OtterBox case I don’t have to worry about destroying my phone and having to replace it.”

The OtterBox is ideal for business travelers, government and military personal, construction workers, engineers and more. “Palm’s Treo smartphones are used in a wide range of environments, which for some people means regular exposure to dust, dirt, rain, or even a day at the beach. The OtterBox 1920 case is the perfect complement for the Treo smartphone for those who need to keep in touch in harsher environments,” explains Jim Schwabe, GM for Palm’s Accessories Business.

“We look forward to offering Treo users the protection they need in the rain, snow, dust, and other harsh work environments,” said Curt Richardson, CEO of Otter Products, LLC. “Most Treo cases require the user to remove the device before using it. With the 1920, users can access their device right through the case.”

An easy-open top cap provides access to SD card slot and a Gore membrane seals speakers and microphones while still allowing use. IR and antenna are also usable through the case. The OtterBox provides access to headphone, sync and charge connectors and an external stylus holder adds convenience for business on the go.

Optional accessories include:
• Belt clip with swivel clip
• Soft case (nylon pouch) with swivel clip
• SD Scanner POD — Allows for the sealed use of a Socket SD Scan Card for bar code scanning
• Screen Replacement Kit — allows for the replacement of the screen membrane

Dimensions of the OtterBox 1920: 5.65 in [144 mm] long (including antenna) X 3 in [76 mm] wide X 1.96 in [50 mm] thick (including latch). Weight is 0.6 lb [.27 kg] (case only).
