Fort Collins, COLO. — Wipe that bead of sweat from your forehead, the anticipation is over! OtterBox releases iPhone 3G protection in the semi-rugged, drop and scratchproof Defender Series design. Case available now in black and coming soon in white, black/yellow and pink.

“Our waiting list for iPhone 3G cases has been building for months,” said Curt Richardson, CEO, Otter Products LLC. “OtterBox engineers have worked hard to introduce slim and durable protection for Apple’s hottest new device. Good design takes time and we wanted to guarantee our customers quality.”

The OtterBox for iPhone 3G Defender Series accommodates Apple iPhone 3G 8 GB and 16 GB with three slim-fit layers of protection*:

Listening to customer suggestions about the first generation iPhone Defender Series case, OtterBox improved the design of the iPhone 3G case. The new case allows access to the silence switch, provides an improved screen and better fit and feel. Sync/charge, home, sleep/wake, volume, camera and headphone jack all remain accessible. Acoustical vents safeguard the microphone and speakers from dust and dirt to allow clear sound transmission. Case also includes a holster-style swivel belt clip which converts into a display stand when device is inserted screen out.

Purchase a black model today or wait for white, black/yellow or pink models coming soon. Pink “Strength” cases benefit the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade and 10% of the purchase price will be donated to support access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer, with a focus on the medically underserved.

For customers needing less extreme protection; OtterBox will soon be offering a new silicone, skin-like case known as the Impact Series. Case will combine durable silicone with impact absorbing features and complete user interaction. Check in the coming weeks for details and availability.
