OtterBox new cases
OtterBox has unveiled a long list of new cases for Apple, HP, Palm, HTC, and BlackBerry smartphones. The Defender Series cases feature multi-layer protection- a clear polycarbonate sheet for abrasion and chemical resistance for the screen, a polycarbonate shell for impact protection, and a silicone skin for further durability and soft feel. The new Impact Series will offer a silicone "skin-like" case.
Both the Impact and Defender cases will be available for the iPhone 3G and Blackberry Bold. Defender Series cases will also be released for the HP 210/110 iPAQ (with or without extended battery), Palm Treo 800, Palm Centro, HTC P6500, and HTC Touch. Defender cases will cost $50, available from OtterBox. Not all models are available yet, and pricing was not provided for the upcoming Impact Series.
