OtterBox Goes Bold with “Strength” Cases for BlackBerry Bold 9700 Smartphones

OtterBox announces the newest addition to its “Strength” line: a limited edition pink and white Commuter Series™ case for the BlackBerry® Bold™ 9700 smartphone. In addition to the “Strength” cases for the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8500 series and BlackBerry® Pearl™ 9100 series smartphones, this new case will also benefit the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.

As a national sponsor of the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade and the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, OtterBox is donating 10% of the purchase price from each “Strength” case sold. Donations will support research to find a cure for breast cancer and programs that provide access to breast health care, regardless of a person’s ability to pay.

To date OtterBox has donated $45,637.

“We’re honored to support such a great cause and to work alongside the Avon Foundation for Women,” said OtterBox CEO Curt Richardson. “We were extremely pleased with our first donation amount and look forward to continuing strong donations through May 2011 by expanding our pink BlackBerry case line.”

Designed to offer both style and protection, the Commuter Series “Strength” case from OtterBox incorporates three layers of protection: first, a self-adhering clear protective film safeguards the screen from scratches; second, a durable white silicone mid-layer wraps around the smartphone to dissipate impact; and finally, a one-piece, custom-molded pink polycarbonate shell hugs tightly around the silicone. All buttons and features remain fully functional through the case.*
