Otterbox to debut Defender for iPad 2 on Friday

updated 01:25 am EDT, Thu May 12, 2011

Offers same protection in a lighter form factor

Case maker Otterbox will officially launch its Defender series case for the iPad 2 on Friday, offering the same impact-absorbing protection found in the original Defender case with 20 percent less weight to match the iPad 2's lighter, thinner specifications.

The Defender features a clip-on touch screen cover that offers a fold-out stand for either typing or viewing angles, a rigid polycarbonate shell with a foam interior to protect the iPad 2 from scratching and a durable silicone skin on the outside for better grip and shock absorption. The multi-layer technology, the company says, combines the best features of other cases into a single rugged package that can withstand extremes of environment. The case designs allows full access to all ports and functions, including both cameras.

The Defender case for iPad 2 will be available for order beginning Friday, and will be priced at $90. It is presently only available in black.

    The case weighs as much as the iPad itself. I'm really looking for a good case, but that's way too heavy. Except for special circumstances I can't imagine why someone would want this.

    Their cases are heavy because they are for the dropping-prone people out there, particularly the Defender series. This is not a case you would buy if you want to be fashionable or can be trusted to take care of your electronics. This is a case for people who are rough on their toys.
