OtterBox announces semi-rugged iPhone case

updated 07:40 pm EDT, Wed October 17, 2007

OtterBox for iPhone

OtterBox, known for its water-proof cases, has announced a new case for the iPhone. Unlike most of the company's other cases, the iPhone case is not completely sealed off, and hence it is only billed as being water-resistant. The case is made from hard plastics which are wrapped in a soft silicone cover and the screen is covered by a special patented touch-screen membrane which still allows full operation of the iPhone.

Despite the three layers of protection the case offers, all controls and functions are usable, save for the Silence switch. The case also comes with a swiveling belt clip which receives the protected iPhone face-first, granting protection as well as functionality.

Slated as having a ship date of October 19th, the OtterBox for iPhone can be pre-ordered from the website for $50.

    SUPER CASE!

    I love the defender case by OtterBox! Totally protected against everything that they say. The silent switch isn't that big of a deal since I've found my way around it. Didn't get it through the otterbox site though because Semsons & Co. Inc. has it for $10 cheaper AND free shipping! Here's the site with coupon codes: http://semsons.blogspot.com (scroll down a little).
