The Survivor Slim aims to deliver protection for all conditions, featuring a shatter-resistant shell and silicone bumper for absorbing the shock of a drop. Its accompanying screen shield prevents scratches and smudges, and the flexible button covers deflect dust, dirt, and rain from entering vulnerable places on the tablet.
The Survivor Slim offers a built-in kickstand that flips open and locks into place, suitable for viewing video content or typing. Priced at $80, the case is available for purchase through Griffin.
FiftyThree's Pencil stylus' SDK offers new app possibilities
