Smart Protection: OtterBox for the BlackBerry Curve 8350i

Combining the need for sleek style and protection from the elements, OtterBox launches an innovative case to safeguard the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8350i smartphone from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM). The new OtterBox case for the BlackBerry Curve 8350i provides users with interactive protection in the popular Defender Series™ design to shield against drop, dirt and scratches.

Three layers of protection provide added security*:

Layer 1:
Thermal formed protective clear PVC membrane covers the keypad from dust and dirt (layer optional)

Built-in PC windows protect the screen and camera from scratches and dust intrusion

Layer 2: Hi-impact polycarbonate shell

Layer 3: Silicone skin absorbs bump and shock

"The new BlackBerry Curve 8350i will allow customers to work virtually anywhere with email, web access, data services and Push-to-Talk features; but those working in harsh environments need protection from the elements and that's where the OtterBox case comes in," said Curt Richardson, CEO of OtterBox. "This Defender Series case safeguards from jobsite mishaps like drops and scratches adding longevity to the smartphone."

The OtterBox for BlackBerry Curve 8350i smartphone allows use of all functions such as the trackball, camera and flash. Sync/charge jack is accessible through a silicone plug. Sound clearly transmits through acoustic vents so users can use headset and speaker. Push-to-Talk features usable through a silicone button. An included holster style swivel belt clip offers hands-free carrying.
