Undeniably Smart Protection: OtterBox for the BlackBerry Pearl & BlackBerry Curve

Sophisticated in design, Otter Products, LLC. releases two semi-rugged, fully-interactive cases into the Defender Series™ line, the OtterBox 1934 for the BlackBerry® Pearl™ and the OtterBox 1935 for the BlackBerry® Curve™ series of smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM). Both cases enable complete usability of the trackball and camera in a sleek, slim fit design and offer distinguished protection.

The OtterBox 1934 and 1935 cases retain style and functionality, ideal for frequent travelers, business professionals and everyday BlackBerry smartphone enthusiasts. Three protective layers provide bump, scratch and drop protection:

Layer 1: Slide on the thermal formed protective clear membrane to safeguard screen and keyboard against scratching as well as dust and dirt* (layer optional depending on the level of ruggedization desired)

Layer 2: Snap together the hi-impact polycarbonate shell

Layer 3: Wrap the silicone skin over the device to absorb bump and shock

"OtterBox is thrilled to extend our Defender™ Series semi-rugged case design to enthusiasts of the BlackBerry Pearl and BlackBerry Curve smartphones," said Curt Richardson, CEO of Otter Products, LLC. "Because these devices are so small, we knew users were looking for something slim yet protective and these cases definitely exceed those expectations."

The OtterBox 1934 and 1935 include three Donaldson Acoustic Vents that cover and protect the microphone, headset and speaker phone openings, while still allowing clear sound transmission through the case. The sync/charge jack is also accessible through a silicone plug.

"As an outside sales rep that is always on the go, the OtterBox is ideal for keeping my BlackBerry Curve protected from daily wear and tear. I am very impressed that this case provides my phone with such a high level of protection while allowing such ease of use," said Matthew Glass, Account Executive at Advanced Bionics.

"BlackBerry smartphones are used by many different types of customers, including field service representatives who sometimes work in harsher environments. Accessories such as the OtterBox 1934 and 1935 maintain usability while providing the users with a sleek, slim fit protector, "said Jeff McDowell, Vice President of Global Alliances, Research In Motion.

The OtterBox 1934 and 1935 cases also include a holster-style, swivel belt clip for convenient carrying. The BlackBerry Pearl and BlackBerry Curve smartphones feature a magnet proximity sensor to automatically shut off the screen to maximize battery life when stored, and this feature is supported with the OtterBox cases.

Both OtterBox cases are available in yellow/black or black.
