Rugged Treo(TM) Case Line Continues-OtterBox 1921, for 680, 750 & 755p Models

Announcing the fully interactive, rugged OtterBox 1921, the latest addition to the Palm® Treo™ smartphone case line from Otter Products, LLC. Designed to accommodate Treo 680, Treo 750 and recently introduced Treo 755p smartphones, the 1921 shields from water, dust and drops while enabling interaction with the keypad, touch screen, volume and program buttons.

As the most rugged Treo case line on the market, OtterBox provides optimal protection for busy work environments and people on the go.

"The latest addition of the 1921 allows users to take their Treo 680, Treo 750 and Treo 755p smartphones virtually anywhere," said Curt Richardson, CEO of Otter Products, LLC. "What makes OtterBox different is not only the protection provided, but the ability for users to send an email or make a phone call right through the case, even if it's raining."(1)

"The OtterBox 1921 can be a save-the-day case for Treo users that work in unforgiving environments," said Jim Schwabe, senior director for handhelds and accessories at Palm, Inc. "With an OtterBox case, dust, dirt or rain won't stop Palm Treo users from checking email, answering a phone call or entering business-critical data."

Composed of durable polycarbonate/ABS and rubber overmolding for grip and drop protection, the 1921 offers Treo users the ultimate guard against the elements. A rigid screen cover protects the LCD and flips up for interactive screen use. Case also provides use of the camera through a clear window on the back.

An innovative compound latch on the 1921 provides users an easy open yet secure closing and an external stylus holder adds convenience. Donaldson® acoustic vents enable excellent sound transmission while protecting against dust and water. Headset, sync and charge connectors remain accessible and Treo 750 users can even operate IR through the case.

"In the construction industry, there is so much grime, dirt, sawdust, snow, rain and other elements, no place for a Treo smartphone," said K.C. Martin, Construction Superintendent and Project Manager for Sapphire Custom Homes. "Being outdoors all day, makes OtterBox ideal for adding device longevity."

The Treo case line first introduced in November 2006 with the OtterBox 1920, which fits Treo 650 and Treo 700 series, provides necessary protection for various industries. From construction and delivery services to healthcare and government agencies, companies save thousands on replacements and repairs by ruggedizing with OtterBox.
