Otter Products, LLC. announces the expansion of the iPod case line with the OtterBox for iPod Mini, engineered exclusively for Apple iPod Mini users. This fully waterproof, interactive case allows digital music enthusiasts access to controls through a durable, yet compact design providing versatility for active lifestyles.

"With the expansion of the Otterbox Apple MP3 line, Otter Products offers a full range of products to consumers," said Curt Richardson, CEO of Otter Products, LLC. "This distinct product line allows users to protect their Apple iPod Mini from harm and carry their music virtually anywhere."

In 2004, Otter Products, released iPod 3rd and 4th Generation cases and now with the introduction of the OtterBox for iPod Mini, customers can take their iPod Mini to the beach, gym, hiking, canoeing or other activities without fear of ruining their valuable device. The OtterBox for iPod Mini retails for $49.95.

"The new case incorporates many improvements that our original OtterBox for iPod users asked for," said Brian Thomas, Director of Sales and Marketing for Otter Products. "The OtterBox for iPod Mini is completely waterproof, has an easy to read through screen, is useable with any style headphones with a standard mini stereo plug (1/8") and incorporates cable management on the belt clip for headphones."

Customers can also use the OtterBox for iPod Mini's optional armband to listen to their favorite tunes as well as still access iPod Mini controls through a clear membrane. With its transparent design, the OtterBox for iPod Mini allows the color of the iPod Mini to show through.

"Numerous iPod Mini users are restricted on where they take their digital music players because they worry about damaging their valuable device, not to mention loosing their favorite tunes," Thomas said. "The OtterBox for iPod Mini allows users to become mobile and fully protects the valuable Mini."

So for iPod users who are still taking their digital music players to the beach in plastic bags for protection, there's a better way to safeguard against environmental hazards with a comprehensive line of iPod protection cases from Otter Products.

Otter Products, founded in 1998, has an exclusive collection line of rugged cases for technology devices including the Tablet PC, Apple iPod, and two other models of handheld computer cases to fit any customer's needs.
