OtterBox Armor should protect against water, hard impacts
Accessory maker OtterBox has announced a new case for the iPhone 4 and 4S, the Armor. Unlike most iPhone cases, the Armor is claimed to be not only drop-proof but dust-, water-, and crush-proof. Few other details are being made public, but the case is set to go on sale June 24th.
SwitchEasy has meanwhile launched the exec, a new case for the third-generation iPad and the iPad 2. The model is marketed as the thinnest folio available, with a design that also makes it easier to install an iPad. A combination of polycarbonate and polyurethane is said to protect against shocks, and almost all surfaces are covered.
The exec costs $60, and is available in black, pink, orange, blue, and green colors. Each package includes a screen protector, a microfiber cloth, plugs for the dock connector and headphone jack, and two fold-out stands.
