Guard Your BlackBerry Pearl 3G Smartphone with OtterBox Defender Series Case

The compact BlackBerry® Pearl™ 3G smartphone is packed with powerful features that you want to protect, so OtterBox is introducing the OtterBox™ Defender Series™ - a rugged case designed to prevent damage.

“The OtterBox Defender Series line is the original multi-layer interactive case,” OtterBox CEO and founder Curt Richardson said. “We are pleased to introduce a Defender Series case for the new BlackBerry Pearl 3G smartphone and give each device special attention to ensure a proper fit and custom protection. Following the same attention to quality, this case is a trusted safeguard in harmful environments.”

OtterBox Defender Series* cases are composed of three layers:

Layer 1: Thermal formed protective clear membrane. Protects against scratching, as well as dust intrusion (layer optional depending on the level of ruggedization desired). The membrane has slight texturing on the interior to prevent sticking.

Layer 2: Hi-impact, shatter resistant polycarbonate shell.

Layer 3: Durable silicone skin that locks into the polycarbonate shell to absorb bump and shock and give a smooth unified case.

“The key feature of the Defender Series is the protection from dirt and dust it provides,” Richardson said. “Silicone covers the camera button and volume, accessory and media keys. There are also flip-up plugs for the headset jack and USB/charge port that keep dust out to avoid interfering with device operation.”

Included with the OtterBox Defender Series is a holster style swivel belt clip for convenient carrying.

To add some color to your device and support a great cause, OtterBox also offers a limited edition pink and white Commuter Series** “Strength” case for the BlackBerry Pearl 3G smartphone. Ten percent of the purchase price will be donated to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. Funding will support finding a cure for breast cancer and advancing access to care for all, regardless of ability to pay. With a slim form factor featuring a silicone mid-layer and smooth polycarbonate outer shell, this case slides easily in and out of a pocket, purse or bag.
