OtterBox for iPhone Case: Genius in Design and Surprisingly Sexy


Fort Collins, COLO–Slim, yet rugged, stylish, yet protective…introducing the OtterBox for iPhone, the first semi-rugged iPod case from Otter Products, LLC. Satisfying the need for protection without compromising style, this “skin on steroids” offers interaction with volume control, camera, touch-screen and phone functions in an attractive new line known as the Defender Series.

“Traditionally our OtterBox for iPod line has been completely rugged, but when the iPhone was introduced we wanted to offer an option that paralleled the look of the device while still providing protection from drops, dust and scratches,” said Curt Richardson, CEO of Otter Products, LLC.

Ready for your vibrant lifestyle, the OtterBox for iPhone Defender Series includes a hi-impact polycarbonate shell that snaps together to safeguard the device and a completely interactive, scratch-resistant polycarbonate membrane to protect screens from dust and light water intrusion.* Additionally, a silicone skin wraps over the shell to add grip and absorb bump and shock with innovative retaining features to hold it in place. iPhone lovers now can safeguard 4 and 8GB devices with confidence.

Three Donaldson Acoustic Vents protect front speaker, bottom speaker and microphone openings of the iPhone case to allow clear sound transmission while keeping out dust and moisture. Case provides access to sync/Charge and headphone jacks through a silicone plug and proximity sensor remains fully functional. Home, sleep/wake and volume buttons remain accessible through silicone pass through buttons. Includes holster style swivel belt clip for hands-free carrying.

OtterBox plans to release a fully rugged iPhone case before the holidays as well as rugged and semi-rugged cases for the new iPod classic, touch and nano devices.

“This semi-rugged design is a new adventure for us and now we can meet the needs of consumers who want the most rugged protection as well as those who just need a safeguard from day-to-day mishaps,” explains Richardson.
