OtterBox Showcases Protective Solutions for BlackBerry Smartphones at FOSE 2010

OtterBox, makers of premier protective solutions for smartphones, will exhibit in Washington D.C. March 23 – 25, 2010 during FOSE (Federal Office Systems Exposition) at the Research In Motion (RIM) booth # 2301.

“With thousands of government professionals present, FOSE is the perfect platform for OtterBox to showcase our rugged cases. No other product offers the same level of protection or quality for professionals in this industry,” OtterBox founder and CEO, Curt Richardson, said. “BlackBerry smartphones have become integral to everyday business and communication so we are looking forward to attending this year’s show. ”

OtterBox offers three custom case options for BlackBerry® smartphones:

Defender Series™: Practically indestructible. With an innovative three layer design, the Defender Series fully encases the BlackBerry smartphone while preserving its distinct qualities. Vents and silicone plugs cover ports and speakers to protect from dust and dirt. All buttons and functions remain fully accessible right through the case and a ratcheting belt clip holster is included for hands free carrying. The Defender Series withstands rough treatment while keeping the smartphone pristine.*

Commuter Series™: Slim and tough. Three slender, yet sturdy layers offer tough protection in a sleek package for BlackBerry smartphones. With a slim form factor and smooth outer layer, this case slides easily in and out of a pocket or bag. Get a high level of security from the distinct design of the Commuter Series.**

Impact Series™: Impressively strong. The most basic OtterBox line, the Impact Series provides remarkably tough protection in an innovative single-layer skin. The durable silicone is brilliantly engineered to absorb impact, featuring inner coring to dissipate shock away from BlackBerry smartphones.***
