OtterBox Commuter Series: New Line of Hybrid Cases for BlackBerry Smartphones

Reversing the Defender™ Series design and adding highlights from the Impact™ Series, OtterBox launches a protective hybrid case line, the Commuter™ Series, with three custom models for the BlackBerry® Storm™, BlackBerry® Tour™ and BlackBerry® Curve™ 8900 smartphones.

Slender, yet sturdy layers of protection safeguard your BlackBerry® smartphone: first, a self-adhering clear protective film safeguards screen from scratches; second, a durable silicone mid-layer wraps over your smartphone to dissipate impact and finally, a one-piece, custom molded polycarbonate shell hugs tightly around the silicone.*

These three OtterBox cases allow complete accessibility to screen, navigation keys and buttons, while silicone plugs provide access to all ports and headphone jack. Included with the case is a cleaning cloth and screen protector installation card. With a smooth outer layer, Commuter Series cases easily slide into your pocket or purse, keeping your smartphone concealed and protected.

“The Commuter Series is a slick line that offers protection in between the Defender and Impact Series,” said Curt Richardson, CEO of OtterBox. “We came up with the design by simply listening to customer feedback. Some thought the Defender was bulky and offered too much protection, while others thought the Impact didn’t offer enough. Our engineers took on the challenge to come up with a case to offer the best of both worlds and the Commuter Series was born.”

Safeguarding the BlackBerry Storm, BlackBerry Tour and BlackBerry Curve smartphone screens from scratches and the corners from bumps and shocks, the Commuter Series is a perfect on-the-go accessory for everyday BlackBerry smartphone enthusiasts.
